Based on the Gold Coast, owner-operator Danny Tubb travels the country carrying motor sports merchandise in his 2006 Mack.

He was at the BP Cluden in Townsville when I saw him, and his flashy Mack really stood out.

With Tubbs was John Gearman who runs the House of Muscle Co. and they were checking out merchandise in a trailer being towed.

Tubbs’ business is called Street Empire Merchandise. “I have been doing this for about 10 years and go to car and ute shows and V8 supercars events. The last one I did was Darwin,” Tubb said.

Tubb enjoyed stopping at the Daly Waters Roadhouse on the Stuart Highway in the NT recently.

“The food was tops especially the Barramundi and beef.”

As for roads, Tubb said there were some rough ones around the country.

“One of the worst is the Flinders Highway between Cloncurry and Julia Creek in Queensland,” he said.

A passionate Canberra Raiders supporter in the NRL, Tubb hopes they can improve on a mid-season slump.
