President's Comments for April 2016

HOLY Corvette Racing Batman!!! The phenomenon continues as Corvette Racing not only finished 1st & 2nd at the 24 hours of Daytona on Jan 31st, but again on March 19th the #4 car took a second straight 2016 IMSA victory in the GTLM class at the 12 hours of Sebring. After winning the triple crown of endurance racing in 2015 (Daytona, Sebring, and LeMans), this now makes 5 consecutive endurance race wins…ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!!

Hopefully we can leverage all this Corvette excitement to the MICC and all our great events to come. This includes the St. Jude Drive to Memphis, Louie-Louie Parade, and our St. Jude Charity Car Show on May 28th. Please help us by sponsoring one or more trophy classes, and signing up to work at the car show. We need everyone to help collect goodie bag, raffle, and silent auction items from our area businesses.

And finally for the car show, I will be carrying on the “President’s Challenge”. That being if we can get 50 or more Corvette entries into our car show, I will personally donate $100 to St. Jude. And if we get to 100 Corvette entries, I’ll throw in an additional $100. So get out there everybody and recruit those Corvette entries!!!
