Speed for a Need

 

Don Heeringa loves to go fast - crazy fast, in fact, he came within a fraction of setting a new speed record for his class at last year's Bonneville Salt Flats Speed Week. His 1991 ZR1 Corvette traveled 5 miles in just 96 seconds: that's 205 miles per hour! Speed Week is an annual event at Bonneville where dedicated car enthusiasts like Don compete against the clock to break speed records in their vehicle class.

This year Don was back at Bonneville with a purpose. He wanted to set a new record and took the opportunity to promote a cause close to his heart, the Wounded Warrior Project. As a veteran himself, he had looked for a way to support our homecoming troops who have tremendous and life-changing injuries. After discussing different options, it was actually his wife, Jodi, who came up with the Bonneville idea.  Helping those who help us makes a lot of sense!
