Can the Lark do it? Can Doug do it?


Again this year, HFP President Doug Tjapkes is taking pledges for the F.A.S.T. muscle car drag races next weekend. He'll be racing his 1963 supercharged Studebaker Lark at Martin, Michigan, on Friday and Saturday, June 26 and 27, and is taking pledges for charity. He will make a maximum of ten quarter-mile runs, if the car remains mechanically sound. You are invited to pledge an amount only for every run that is made in less than 14 seconds!

Can a 45 year old Studebaker perform in the 13s? Can a 72 year old race driver pull it off? If you pledge $10 for every run under 14 seconds, as an example, the most you will contribute is $100. The car has been in storage since last fall. The driver hasn't raced since last year! How high do you dare pledge?

All contributions are tax-deductible, and will support HUMANITY FOR PRISONERS. Doug will buy his own racing gas!

You may email your pledge now. Results will be announced June 29.
