On a bright and clear September 11th morning, dozens of motorcyclists from around Northwest Indiana and neighboring states gathered in the parking lot of Harley-Davidson of Valparaiso for the 4th annual Northwest Indiana Automobile Trade Association Poker Run.
The World’s Strongest Man and one of the region’s biggest festivals collided on Saturday afternoon. Muller Acura of Merrillville made the combination a highlight of the Popcorn Festival. Located right in front of the William E. Urschel pavilion in the heart of downtown Valpo, the World’s Strongest Man Brian Shaw welcomed fans at the Muller Acura booth for photos, an interactive photo booth, and some light hearted chatter while hanging with friends from Muller.
When Glenn Muller of Muller Acura asked me to do a test drive of the new 2017 ACURA MDX Luxury SUV I knew I would enjoy the ride having been a past owner of an Acura Integra many years ago, and most recently an MDX about 7 years ago. Knowing the history that Acura has for “precision crafted performance”, I was looking forward to seeing how far the 3rd row crossover SUV had come. The smile on Glenn’s face as he told me what he loves about the car began to give me a better understanding of what I was about to experience driving around Northwest Indiana.

Only those who have served our country in the military truly know the rigors of war. Those of us who have never served can only begin to imagine what goes on when someone in the Armed Forces goes overseas to fight, but we all understand the job is one of the most physically and emotionally demanding ones in all of the world.
