Cruising the Colonel's

CORBIN — There were several “Little Red Corvettes” (not to mention blue, white, black and yellow) leaving KFC’s Sanders Cafe in Corbin during the lunch hour Friday. Led by the one used by Kentucky State Police (pictured), a total of 23 ‘Vettes stopped there to eat, as part of their “One Lap Tour of Kentucky.”

Sponsored by the Kentucky State Police’s Trooper Island and the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, the cool cars began at the museum, then headed eastward. Among the stops made were Trooper Island, the Stearns community in McCreary County, Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, Renfro Valley and Levi Jackson State Park.

After getting their fix of fried chicken, the ‘Vettes trekked northward, and will end up at the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea. It’s the third year for the One Lap Tour, which is a fundraiser for both groups, and is used by Trooper Island for their scholarship fund.

If you missed it yesterday, don’t worry, the shiny sports cars will be there next Friday, during the lunch hour at the same place.
