2.4 Hours of Dakota!!
The Market Grille at Hy Vee on Sycamore in Sioux Falls was transformed on February 25th from solely a fabulous dining emporium to the fastest racetrack in the region! The 2.4 Hours of Dakota Hot Wheels event morphed the eatery into a raucous – “no-holds-barred; living on the edge” - racing hotspot. Thirty-four cars and their drivers competed for the coveted “Carrera Cup”. The action was intense and the heats were watched with great anticipation and also, with great care, by the track official and 2.4 HoD entrepreneur – John Mollison. As the races progressed, the numbers dwindled and the winner of the Carrera Cup was none other than Jacklyn Mollison, racing her
Italian/German/Japanese/American-fusion trick mobile. The second and third place winners were Laura Smith Hill and Jamie Lennon, winning likewise
fabulous prizes in identical Porsche 993 GT3’s. The gears are moving forward in preparation for next year’s event and the participants are enthusiastically
ready for re-matches. Many, many thanks to our sponsors: Market Grille; Fernson Brewery and Riccardo Tarabelsi; Porsche of Omaha and Mitch Schneringer; the staff of the national office of the Porsche Club of America; Mollison Brand Advocates; Nolasoft; & Steam Digital. Thanks to everyone for helping to raise $1500 for the benefit of Lutheran Social Services’ New Americans' fund!
