Today’s Featured Sponsors



Today we had our annual Christmas Celebration Event.  The room was at capacity with the largest group in 20 years; over 80 people in attendance!  Team members and their families had a great day of sharing their friendships in the busy holiday season.  Below are some of the photos we thought you would enjoy.

Award to Eric Almost Famous Wittler

A number of awards were presented in this truly remarkable year.  Jessi Combs received the Russell Zanghi Inspirational Award.  After driving high speed runs in the 2016 tests, she returned this year, stepping up and filling the shoes of Ed Shadle as the lead driver.  Steve Rima, Steve Wallace, and Cory Mitchell each received a beautiful Eddie Harris original print for their work at the 2018 Alvord Test Session. They worked through some very stressful troubleshooting sessions and kept on task to correct a problem found during testing.

Eric Wittler was given special recognition for being our HERO during the year. Les Holm presented the Excellence in Engineering Award to Paul Dries for his work on the steering system.

Candy, Elaine, and Cam Shadle each received a beautiful Eddie Harris print of Ed and his roadster
