First Day of Racing

The team had an early start this morning to finish the last minute prep to get the car ready for the race. We started out strong and ahead of schedule and stayed ahead most of the day. We had one minor set back at a construction site where we met a tractor head on a single lane, narrow bridge which set us back about twenty minutes, but we made it back and finished strong for the day.

The waiting was worth it for this amazing shot as Sundancer topped the hill.

The cops pulled over the guy who passed us in a no passing zone.

One of the perks to being first to impound is finding the best charging spot.

Members, Trey Franklin, Kristen Marsh, and Charlsi Allen, found a great place to sit as the car charged at the end of the day.

The town of Snyder had a few old cars on display for us to look at while they prepared supper.
