One Small Step, One Giant Leap

With Woodstock yet a month away, July 20th 1969 marked one of the greatest milestones in history. Two men piloted a small craft down to the surface of the moon, and Neil Armstrong became the first man ever to set foot on the moon. "That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind," were the words heard around the world.

This forty year milestone anniversary is shared by an event that was marked by another famous one-liner: "Gentlemen, start your engines!". The Road America Kohler International Challenge coming this July 16-19 is the 40th anniversary of PRDA's own Tony Adamowicz's win at Road America.

Unfortunately, this time around will require "One Giant Leap" to get there in running order. Mid-Ohio has taken it's toll on Tony's ride after encountering an oil slick and getting intimate with a guard rail. With merely two weeks until Road America, Tony and his crew are frantically looking for a replacement rim for his Eagle.

We will keep you posted as to Tony's progress.
