The Houston Lady Racers making sure that everything is still working properly on Sundancer II so we won't have any problems on our training run to Winona this Saturday!

Saturday, August 28 the Houston Lady Racers will make an all day training run to Winona! To ensure everything will work properly during the run, the girls checked and then double checked everything on Sundancer II. Our team already can't wait for the Hunt-Winston Solar Challenge this summer and we are super excited about starting training! (Especially since the girls have a new hot pink seat belt to wear while zooming down the road!)
