One day to until the big debut at Daytona...

The Blind Driver Challenge team practices tomorrow for the debut of the Blind Driver Challenge vehicle just outside the Daytona International Speedway. Behind the wheel is Marc Riccobono, who will drive the car tomorrow on the track before thousands of race fans.

He is executive director of the National Federation of the Blind’s Jernigan Institute, which launched the idea of a vehicle that the blind one day could drive. Behind Mark is Laura Strickland, a Virginia Tech junior majoring in mechanical engineering and a member of the Blind Driver Challenge student team.
