One of the primary sponsors of the cross country interstate celebration is Firestone. They are well represented by the great grandson of Harvey Firestone, Andrew. Andrew made remarks this morning at our kickoff ceremony.
It was a bright morning hence the shades.
Andrew says his family was there from the beginning of the interstate system. In fact, he pointed out that without these great highways, we wouldn’t have been able to get our kicks on Route 66.
