Mary and I are getting ready to leave for Joplin, Missouri, where we will be participating in the “All Stars for Autism” Road Rally event hosted by the VCRA or Vintage Car Rally Association from May 1st-May 5th. Joplin also happens to be the city where the 2013 Great Race , Down the Mighty Mississippi, will finish. As many readers may remember, last year the team “Spirit of Stahls” participated in this classic car road rally for the first time. This year, we will have two cars entered. Mary and I will drive a 1934 Ford
and sons Brett Stahl and Daniel Stahl will drive the 1941 Packard in which we finished the race last year. Have you ever thought about participating in such an event? Vintage car road rallies are a family passion which we are honored to be sharing with some of our customers this year. We will be holding several contests that will allow YOU, our GroupeSTAHL customers, to enter for a
chance to ride along for each leg of the race. More information on this opportunity will be posted soon. There are a lot of details to be worked out yet, but it will be a lot of fun. But I just wanted to let you know that if you are a GroupeSTAHL customer that lives along the Great Race 2013 route, or are able to get to the points on the route, there will be opportunities for you to enter for a chance to go for a “ride along” with Mary and I, and help me navigate. As soon as I have the details, we will share links on how to enter. In the meanwhile, you can follow the Great Race on Twitter @TheGreatRace or on Facebook. The Great Race takes place from June 22-30, so mark your calendars if you are interested in cheering us on or in entering for a chance to win a “ride along.” We are very excited about being able to share this experience with as many of you as possible.
