Today marked the fourth day of the race which took us through the flat plains of Texas and into the hills of New Mexico.
Our warm-up run brought us past the famous Cadillac Ranch where we had just enough time for a picture before continuing to the start line.
The morning consisted of many speed changes and timed speed runs. This put more pressure on the driver to keep a steady and consistent foot.
Lunch was in Tucumcari and offered a nice pit stop and cool down before climbing up towards Santa Fe.
The hills of New Mexico challenged us to anticipate climbs and downhill grades to stay within speed, but it offered some amazing views!
Some of the hills, holding 25 mph, gave the Fairlane a workout and caused a few coughs of the engine.
Tonight we are in Santa Fe, NM to rest up for our journey to Gallup, NM. It will only get hotter as we go, so the more water and rest for ourselves and the car, the better!
Update you all in Gallup, Goodnight!
