This was Corvettes Conquer Cancer's 20th consecutive year at Corvettes @ Carlisle, the largest of all Corvette events. A huge THANK YOU to Lance Miller, and of course his dad Chip previously, for hosting us all these years!

The weather this year was the BEST EVER:
4 days of mid 70s, moderate humidity and light breezes.
