Traveling from Florida with their reliable "Tow Pig" accompanying them, the team embarked on a smooth journey to North Carolina. With a generous fuel supply of 48 gallons in the tank and an additional 96 gallons in the bed, they cruised without the need to stop for gas.

Upon reaching Modern Racing, their anticipation peaked as they reunited with their cherished vehicle, affectionately named "Prenup." Having dropped it off weeks earlier, the team eagerly surveyed the progress made during their absence, taking note of the tidied wiring and the installation of two fresh batteries. Assisted by the experts at Modern Racing, they were confident that Prenup was primed to hit the road once again.
