We are on our third day of the racing and are spending our next two nights in Amarillo, TX! Tomorrow will be a rest day for all of the teams, our team is super excited to be able to sleep in for the first time since the race started! While on the road today, the guys decided it would be funny to make the girls believe something major had happened to Sundancer! As the girls were racing down the road, they noticed the guys on the side of the road holding fire extinguishers. One member's arm was wrapped in a bandage! Of course we imagined the worst! At the next rest stop, the guys explained that it was just a joke and that Sundancer was still running smoothly!

Congratulations. Being from Houston, Mississippi myself and having lived in Dallas, Texas since 1980, it does my heart good to see a "hometown" team win such a prestigious race.
Keep up the good work.
