The day before One Lap of America begins is always a little anxious, and a little slow all at the same time. 
This morning, we got the oil changed in the Corvette, picked up a few last minute items at the store, and got the decals on the car and went through tech inspection. It sounds like a lot, but since it's our fourth year, we got through it pretty quickly. 

Here's the car at the Tire Rack headquarters in South Bend, Indiana, they are one of the major event sponsors and we really appreciate their generosity and hospitality. Where else can you get a set of tires for 25% off, and get to wear them out on a skidpad all in one spot?
Tomorrow is Day 1 of the event, we are looking forward to these events:

  • Wet Skid Pad at Tire Rack's South Bend Headquarters. 
  • Time Trial at Grissom Air Force Base also in Indiana.
  • Passage Control at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. 
  • And then at the end of the day, we'll head off to Memphis, TN for the next day's events. 

Thanks for following us!

One Lap of America always starts in South Bend, Indiana. This is the fourth year we will be competing in the event. 
This year we are competing in the SSGT1 Big Bore category in a 2014 Corvette Stingray. 
Our trip crosses a few state lines:

Ohio:

And we always stop at Corky and Lenny's Deli in Cleveland. It's half way to South Bend, and they have great food!

Our first year was in 2010 and our One Lap car was actually a truck - here we are at New Jersey Motorsports Park with the Dodge SRT-10 pickup truck. Our family even visited us!

In 2011, we couldn't go due to a severely disabling tennis injury. 
But we were back in 2012 in the Camaro. That was the year the front of the car fell off. We persevered, painted teeth on the front bumper support and finished the event. 

We also got to visit family in 2012, they not only fed us and sheltered us, but drove down to see us compete at Hallett, in Jennings, Oklahoma. 

In 2013 we were back in the Camaro, one of the highlights of the trip was getting to drive at Daytona!

Tomorrow we have tech inspection and the driver's meeting, and then the event officially starts on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014.
