Day Seven

The day began at Wal-Mart in Canton, Ohio. After only two miles of driving the back left wheel broke and flew off. We had to stop on the side of the road, decide what we were going to do about the problem, and then come up with a plan. After only a few minutes a guy was nice enough to stop and direct Mrs. Turman and Mr. Reese to the nearest Lowes. They rushed there as fast as they could and bought the parts we needed to fix the back end, and we repaired it as fast as we could so that we could get back on the road. We were running pretty good, but shortly before we got to the days finish line we had another small set back. Lance was driving and noticed that a weld had broken that's purpose was to brace the array. Once again we pulled over, and managed to fix the problem within minutes and get back on the road. Even though our day held a few obstacles, our team stuck together and worked through them and managed to win day seven, putting us in the lead of the race.
