Mock Race Images

As we drive back on I94, I have regained a solid internet connection. Here are the missing photos from day 2 of mock race.

Our Scout vehicle parked at Crowder College in Neosho, Mo

The sun begins to rise at Crowder College


Driving north towards Topeka. During the morning the weather was not terrible, but in the distance we could see a roll cloud associated with the storm.
The storms brew ahead of Continuum.


The storm is advancing and we decided to head south
to stay safe and avoid the hail and tornadoes.



We head south to Nevada, Mo to avoid the storm
cells that have the race route covered.

Back on the road after the storms in clear skies!

Continuum rolls into the Topeka control stop and is received by team members.

Thanks for the updates and the photos. One showed Doug in a clean shirt. That's different.

Glad to hear the interest spectators have in the car. With gasoline over 4 dollars per gallon, you may get curious onlookers placing orders for solar cars.

This is amazing, keep it up guys. That weather may have been bad to drive through but Ann Arbor's weather hasn't been much better lately anyway :)
