Day Three

Mr. Reese soaking up the sun!
Big thanks to Steven Iames with Waukaway Water Company for donating the "Sundancer" water! It has been a big hit throughout the race.
Mrs. Ellison with her grandchildren when we were in Houston!
Me and Paige riding the motorcycles with Mr. Todd and Mr. Rob! Everyone loved that they got motorcycle escorts into town.
Our team recieving a check for $5,000 from the Mississippi Biomass Council! Thank you so much!!
Day three of the race was Wednesday. Our team left Shreveport about 6:30 AM, trailered the car to Canton, Mississippi, and then put the car out and drove on into our hometown HOUSTON, MISSISSIPPI! We had a pretty hard day, but we still managed to get on home. We did not get the average speed that we had hoped for, but it was not anything the team did; the bolt broke on the accelerator causing us to have to slow down quite a bit. We did not win day three, but we were so excited to be home our team did not let that get our heads down! All of our fellow racing teams loved the hospitality shown by Houston. They loved that someone was willing to wash their clothes and had planned so many things for us to do. California was also very grateful because they finally got their car to work because everyone around the town that could chipped in to assist them in anyway possible. We all also loved the great food, goodie bags and baskets, and last but not least the Elvis Impersonator!

On behalf of the entire Sundancer team, I would just like to thank everyone in Houston for everything you all did for us and for everyone coming out to see us. It made not only our team feel special, but everyone else's too! We love all of you and are so grateful to have such a supportive town backing us through all of our adventures!
