The Book of Exodus

Reading through the book of Exodus it is easy to have the 20/20 hindsight factor in high gear. Moses and Aaron are pleading with Pharaoh to “let My people go” but Pharaoh keeps hardening his heart, or hitting the redline thinking he is in control. Well most of us know the end of the story and how Pharaoh is dealt a huge blow; as a nation and personally.

To a degree, we see the same story replayed daily. No matter how much we implore people to change their ways and seek God’s desire for their lives they just keep trudging along doing it “my way”.
But as Moses and Aaron kept delivering the message so too must we. The outcome IS played out in 20/20, we know the end. And there are those that want to hear, so keeping going out and walking the walk because eventually pharaoh will let His people go!

Her Pinkness

Remembering Donna Mae Mims
I don’t remember exactly when I first met Donna Mae. It may have been when she was working on the false grid at Nelson Ledges or maybe when admiring her pink Corvette with the incredible mural of Marilyn Monroe on the hood. Her name sounded familiar since I had been following racing since the nearly 60’s, but it was only later I learned the extent of her accomplishments. Donna started racing in 1958 was the first and only one of three women to win an SCCA National Championship in H Production in 1963 in her pink Austin-Healy Bug eye Sprite in her pink coveralls and helmet. “I just always liked pink,” she said. Donna was an employee of the famous Yenko Chevrolet and worked with Zora Arkus Duntov among others in the development of Chevrolet Racing. She also raced Camaros, MGs, Corvettes, and Corvairs in places such as Sebring, Daytona, and Riverside. For one of her funnier escapades, she drove a Cadillac Limo in the 1972 Cannonball Run with an all girl team.
