Default Coker Tire Challenge: Part 1

Hope your able to keep your foot out of it. A friend from long ago used to do this kind of racing and he always tried to con me into trying it. As soon as he would mention "getting there in a prescribed amount of time" all bets were off. I'm too used to "getting there first" from long years in drag and oval track. At 65 maybe I should try something different...............maybe at 70?

Who is there from the guard sponsorship? I used to work on the National Guard marketing teams and I did quite a bit with the great race back in 06. Is Jack Roush still riding in the Army sedan and wearing his 4star general hat?

This is the Coker Tire Challenge, not the Great Race. The actual Great Race is on hiatus until 2010:

Frank, you could swing it like the turtle and the hare. Drive like hell, get almost there, and then take a NAP until it's finishing time! You've got all of the training worked out!
