March 26 our team was invited to display Sundancer at the Tupelo Automobile Museum Convention located guessed it, the Tupelo Automobile Museum!! We were excited to tell the convention goers about our car and are thankful we were invited!! We also made the trip to Tupelo a mini training run even though we had to trailer part of the way because of cloudy skies.

Spring Fever

Next week will be our Spring Break!! Even though we are excited about the short break away from school, we are still working hard to get as much done on our car as possible!! We can't wait for spring to get here because this is the time our team starts taking training runs! We are also excited about our possible three day training run to Biloxi towards the end of the school year!!
