Infinite Lap

Where the checkered flag never flew and no marshal could wave you off the track. Where apex can be nailed, to perfection, over and over again. This is the heaven we’d strap into.

• President Larry Garner and Rita, Karol and Dennis Mason and Denise and Robert McCorkle all went to Miata’s at Myrtle Beach. Not as big a turnout as in the past but still a fun time.
