New this year, and I will definitely be back!

A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of meeting several members of the Atlanta area club, Pacesetters Corvette Club, which has been running this fundraiser event  for 8 years, when they were in Maine in May of 2008 on the 3000 mile Tour For A Cure.

Leaving home 7:23am

First, a car show with my club at Home Depot in Stevenson AL until early afternoon.

Then it was solo to Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Arriving at AMS shortly before 5.

This had to be one of the best organized events I have ever had the pleasure of attending!

After paying the Registration fee of $10 you could get 5 laps for each $25 donation.

Here we are, ready to take off. Like that high-tech camcorder mount?

This is a screen capture of my best lap; head-up display shows speed & tach. I wish I had this setup in place @ Talladega when I saw 152! Atlanta is a much tighter course.

131 at AMS 2.jpg

Seen in the pits: Supercharged Viper! If more is better, then too much is just right...

Under the lights just before departure.

After a Microtel overnight in Bremen GA, this was local traffic in rural Alabama.
