Sunseeker in 25th place crossing Oklahoma
July 19, 2001
ASC official standings at the end of the day put the WMU team
in 25th place, just 12 minutes behind Northwestern University,
as recorded at the Edmond, Okla., official race checkpoint. Race
The team began the race day in Vinita, Okla., with the car hitting the road early and pulling in to the Tulsa, Okla., checkpoint at around 10:15 a.m. CDT. After stopping to repair a flat tire that occurred as Sunseeker pulled into the checkpoint, the team loaded the car into its trailer and headed for the next checkpoint in Edmond, Okla., at the University of Central Oklahoma.
After charging the car's batteries for several hours, the team once again put the car on the road, heading for their planned El Reno stop.
