Mavs & Mochas: Stonebriar Community Church By Debi Kruder photos by Jim Hirsch, Bill Kruder, Peter Wen This month, Mavs & Mochas met under clear blue skies in Frisco, TX at Stonebriar Community Church, where the “Big Kids” brought out nearly 120 of their cool Porsches. To make the morning even more fun, our very own Mav PCA member Ajai Cadambi made a special appearance with his new red Ford GT Heritage Edition, which was eye candy for both the young and old. Setting the tone for what was about to take place inside, the third annual Stonebriar Grand Prix was about to begin! If you have not attended this car event, it’s one of our favorites of the season, with the cars outside averaging 170 inches in length, and the rigs inside at a maximum of seven inches. Nearly 160 pinewood derby cars took the track, and the race for speed began, with each car racing in four heats (one on each track) and computermonitored software and timer calculating the fastest of their four times. More than 300 people cheered on the races, enjoying Steel City Pops and delicious sandwiches and burgers from The Eggcellent Café food truck. Thanks to Stonebriar for the complimentary Hope Coffee, and to Park Place Porsche for the plentiful Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Back outside, the fun continued as we featured nearly a dozen Cayennes celebrating their 15th anniversary. Park Place Porsche showcased a new 2018 model, and what a surprise when Steve Bukoski, president of the Lone Star Region, pulled in to sport his Cayenne too! With cold bottles of water, Hope Coffee, cold popsicles, and 275 rigs both big and small, it truly was a morning of driving friendships with our neighbors around the Metroplex and beyond!
