Have we mentioned that we love to sponsor fun events around the community? This month we are sponsoring the Demolition Derby at the Loudoun County Fair. For details on dates and ticket prices please visit the Loudoun County Fair Website.
We're doing more than just sponsoring...
We have three of our own participating in the Demolition Derby this year: Cory Rader, Danny Manning, and Richard "Turbo" Hunter and are looking forward to watching them work the crowd with some amazingly good 'bad' driving (kids don't try this stuff at home).

Nobody ever looks forward to a flat tire, and nobody ever says "well, that was a really good time" after having one. You can at least minimize the damage to your tire and danger to yourself, though.
Flats vs Blowouts
If you get a blowout, you'll know about it right away. Sometimes the tire can fail dramatically, with a bang as loud as a shotgun going off. Other times, it might just be a loss of air and a sudden change in your car's handling, followed by vibration, noise and a pull to one side. If it's a front tire that fails, your car might be a real handful to drive until you can get to a stop.
In either case, your first job is to pull off the road as quickly (but safely!) as you can. Don't jam on the brakes or make any sudden moves, just get over to the sh ...[more]
Year after year we have supported events in our community to build better relationships by giving back. This goes a long way toward making and keep our community and yours strong. This year we are doing it again. We have decided to once again support the Local Mini Soccer Program.
The Mini Soccer Program takes place for several weeks from Fall 2016 through Spring 2017. Children ages 3 through 6 will be participating in a Saturday training program with a Professional Trainer from Darryl Gee Soccer Academy. For seven week the kids will get a chance to have 45 to 60 minutes of fun while learning teamwork, that is age appropriate, to help build the foundation for playing soccer.

At one time, there were only a couple of choices for motor oil. Today, that is no longer the case, and hasn't been for quite some time. Here's a quick breakdown of what you need to consider when it's time for an oil change:
- Viscosity: Viscosity is how thick your oil is, and how it retains its pour properties at various temperatures. In this respect, synthetic oil is far superior. Conventional oils will thicken in cold weather and thin out when very hot, while the viscosity of synthetic is much more uniform. Check your owner's manual -- many newer models require a thinner, lower-viscosity oil, which also helps the engine run more efficiently. Viscosity is expressed as a numerical value -- the lower the number, the thinner the oil. Many are designed to work at various viscosit ...[more]
