If it's Hallett it must be Wednesday. We kind of lose track of the days so we just look at the schedule to see where we are and what day it is;^) It was a rainy day at Hallett and very slippery, slid a good bit but never went off track and did pretty good. After the afternoon session we headed up to Kansas to Heartland Park Grand Prix Course. On the drive to Kansas we had tornado watches and warnings and some tremendous downpours of rain. Fortunately we never saw any tornados.

As previously announced, this year my Transit Driver will be fellow car enthusiast Gary "Duck" Drake from the Cincinnati area. Duck and I will share the highway driving and I will do all the competitive driving when we compete at each of the tracks. This year we will race on 6 different road course tracks, one Oval track, do 2 skid pad competitions, one Autocross and 2 drag events. The event is about 3100 miles but with my trip to the start in South Bend Indiana and then home I will put on almost 4,500 miles.
This is such an amazing world class event that I wanted to use it to do some community good and decided several years ago to raise money for the Pa. Breast Cancer Coalition. Our accumulated total to date is over $40,000 raised for a great cause. A Donation of $20 or more gets your name on the car and you can ride along vicariously;^) You can also put a name on in Memory or in Honor of someone. For those interested in donating and getting your name on a sticker on the car please stop in at West Main Auto in Mount Joy or see Duck or me, (make all checks payable to PBCC or Pa. Breast Cancer Coalition). You can also mail me a check at West Main Auto 14 W. Main St. Mount Joy, Pa. 17552. If it is more convenient just go to https://www.pabreastcancer.org/one-lap-of-america/ and you can donate using your credit card. The Pa. Breast Cancer Coalition is a great resource and represents, supports and serves breast cancer survivors and their families through educational programming, legislative advocacy and breast cancer research grants. The PBCC is a statewide non-profit organization that creates the hope of a brighter tomorrow by providing action and information for women with breast cancer today. Thank you, Jim Roberts
