Drive Against Prostate Cancer - Prologue

Where has a year gone? has flown by and we are three short months from the start of another Tire Rack One Lap of America in support of ZERO - The Project to End Prostate Cancer.

The ZERO - The Project to End Prostate Cancer golf tournament date is set for April 25th at Westwood Country Club.  Once again, we plan to put on a great event.  Hitt Contracting has graciously agreed again to be the title sponsor of the event.  Huge THANKS to Hitt!!!!!!

We'll be running a new car in the One Lap this year - a 2011 BMW M3 with a Competition Package (factory suspension upgrades).  The first shake down cruise has already occurred with Woody Hair and me driving it to Daytona, FL for the Rolex Series 24 Hours at Daytona.  The car ran great, is very comfortable, and gets fairly good mileage on the highway (21.1 MPG) given it sports a 4.4 liter V-8 motor.  The next shake down occurs at Virginia International Raceway the end of this month.  It will the cars first time on track and I am very much looking forward to it.  Woody will be at VIR as well so we'll both grab some seat toime in the car.  I hope the weather starts to take a turn for the better over the next few weeks.

I'll post some photos of the new car and provide an update after the VIR event.  Please stay tuned!!!!
