The Wamplers Rock!!!!!
Thanks to Connie and Jim Wampler, the crew and Paul got a very refreshing break. Their house is located right on the course near Sullivan IN, time station 37. They told us before the race that they will help in any way. I told them they will get a bunch of tired, hungry, dirty men at 2am who will make a big mess! And they said, bring it on!!! Wow, what great support! They are friends of crew member Ed P., and Ed's wife also drove down from Terre Haute to support Team Danhaus. So when the crew arrived, they came with a flat tire that needed to be fixed on the chase vehicle. The wamplers helped with that. They came with a pile of dirty laundry, which they let them wash, and even had a bunch of towels so the crew and Paul could take a shower. And if that weren't enough, they got a lovely home cooked dinner. Then the crew and Paul decided it was too good to leave so they watched a little TV (which they hadn't seen for over a week) and took a nice long nap to refresh. The entire team thanks the Wamplers for their time, hospitality, and support!
