Speaking Of 356 Porsches And Awesome Sportmanship

I am happy to report that while acts of sportsmanship during the La Carrera Panamericana are not all that uncommon one of the best that I know of took place during the 2008 La Carrera Panamericana when our very good friend Carson Scheller stopped during the race to help another team who had ran ot of gas. Not only did this take place during the race but in fact Carson was well aware that the car out of gas was batteling with him for first place in the same class. It's acts such as this that say a hell of a lot more about La Carrera Panamericana than many other venues can say.

I am sure that when the section of garden hose now known as the CCC (Carson Credit Card) was done being used that it was returned to the lawn from which it came.

notice the rags tied around the many splits in the garden hose ...
that credit card had expired a few years earlier

It's nice to see there is still sportsmanship to be found.

gee, and I only got a ride to the gas station (and had to sit on Shields' lap for 5k, that's a hardship in and of itself)...what's a girl got to do to get a little gas herself?

hell..... I enjoyed it. (What race was that again? Carson is always stopping to help someone)

PS what you don't notice is that the hose is stuck in the gas tank of the caravan in the background and Jan is inside keeping the owners occupied by buying them some tacos

dy thinks ramon got the better end of the deal, I had to buy my own gas and get kicked out of the race (temporarily)
