SC&RA Members Set the Stage for July 4 Festivities in D.C.
(July 10, 2019)
- Daily Express, Inc., an SC&RA member located in Carlisle, Penn., helped the nation celebrate during the July 4 festivities on the National Mall last week. Daily Express drivers, Lenny Yocum and Mike Weisgerber, delivered four tanks¬¬—two Bradley fighting vehicles and two Abrams battle tanks—to the National Mall for the Salute to America event. The tanks flanked the speaking stand of President Trump. SC&RA member Talbert Manufacturing built the custom trailers for transporting the tanks. The 60-ton tanks were transported using 600-horsepower trucks with a nine-axel lowboy. Different axel configurations spread out the weight to meet Washington, D.C.’s bridge restrictions.
