In this update: Unload day at the Hangar and a really big announcement!
Today’s Featured Sponsors
The team met on a Friday this week in order that we could celebrate Independance Day on Saturday July 4th. Today a large crew consisting of Crew Chief Les Holm, Steve & Libby Wallace, Lars Pederesen, Chris Greene, Ed Shadle, Jason Mitchell, John Drury, Keith Zanghi, Eric Helpenstell and Omar Chramosta started the day at 8am. It showed great team work as the car was unloaded by 9 am and everything packed away. Good thing too since daily temperatures have been in the mid-90s. This week’s cover shot is by Rachel Shadle.
Special guest this day was Isabelle Helpentstell, daughter of Eric.
