2nd Annual Great American Sports Car Challenge
EMC Parking Lot; Franklin, MA
July 20, 2008
(Rain Date from June 22)
This great event produced $2200.00 for the American Cancer Society,
in spite of being held on a rain date which conflicted with a Mustang event in the area. Thanks Corvettes United and EMC for your dedication and generosity!

Leaving home on Saturday for a club get-together in NH.
I spent the night at my daughter's in Bedford MA, only 45 minutes from the show.

This is a unique show: Mustangs showing against Corvettes in the same classes.
Gold, Silver and Bronze awards based on points, rather than 1st, 2nd, 3rd. It worked well!
Unusual C3: that Midyear fuel injection unit has been on it since the early 70s!
The owner put it on for autocrossing because it didn't flood/starve during hard cornering.
A very hot, steamy day!
As a thunderstorm storm bore down on us, Corvettes United presented me with a BIG CHECK - $2200.00 for the American Cancer Society!
Pulling out in the nick of time - 6 minutes later...
Back home after a wet, blustery ride.
THANK YOU, CORVETTES UNITED!
