· 3/14=my 42nd rally anniversary
Fellow Tulsan and former rallyist, Jim Doidge (you old timers will recall that name), was kind enough to call me this morning and share his surprise at walking out of the Opryland Hotel in Nashville to see a parking lot full of sports cars brandishing Gumball 3000 Rally stickers. I'd never heard of the event but did find http://www.gumball3000.com on the web. It seems they've run this thing in Europe a couple of times and are doing a cross-country gig here now. Dallas is the next stop.
