"Flag Jumper"

by Dennis Howard

"It was a no-brainer. Mark Schlatter comes down several thousand feet swirling around the flag and draws the focus of the crowd, the drivers and the pit crew. They play 'God Bless the USA' when he jumps and 'The Star Spangled Banner' after he lands. It's a first-class opening for a first-class facility."
