Team NAE™

teamedwards

Rogers Dry Lake Bed, Edwards AFB, CA - October 2005

This team has grown from just four original team members in 1998, to over forty volunteers from nearly every profession today. For as long as nine years they have enthusiastically given one or two days of each week - sometimes more - to do whatever has been necessary to see the goal of bringing the world land speed record back to America happen. The friendships and support of everyone for each other as a team is a testament to the leadership of the two men who chose to become partners at the project's inception.
