    Team Escalade Texas - Kickoff Tomorrow at the Arlington, Texas GM Assembly Plant

    Team-Escalade-Cadillac.jpg Ok, so if you have read this thread ( then you know I've been invited to ride-along event tomorrow (Thursday, September 22, 2011) at the Arlington Texas GM Assembly Plant.

    I was just asked earlier this week if I was available (yes ..... yes, I am) and I was told that there would be "19 local celebrities" taking part to earn $150,000 for a charity. Not a lot of facts, they have the charities and everyone will be broken into six teams.

    Ok, I get the teams part. I get the idea of celebrities, but what does a "local celebrities" mean anyhow? Seems so abstract, so uncertain, such a mystery. Who's it gonna be on these teams? Who am I going to be riding with?

    Well, this is still a mystery, but I did just get the list of celebrities that will be taking part.
