Longview Hardbody Field Down To 8

First there were 27, now there are 8. The grueling competition and the Texas heat are taking their toll on the Hands On A Hardbody contest in Longview. Contestants are predicting this year's winner will have to go at least 100 hours to walk away with the Nissan Titan pick-up.

They say this point, it's a matter of overcoming physical pain and forcing yourself to "stay on the truck."

You can keep up with all the contestants at the Hands On A Hardbody web site. Go back to the home page and click on the Know More on 7 icon.
