Day 8-9 update on The Drive Home from ACM CEO David Madeira


After a great night in St. Louis at Hyman Classic Cars we crossed the flood swollen Mississippi and arrived at State Farm headquarters in Bloomington, Illinois, where we were greeted–as you see in photos – by Director of Marketing Ed Gold and colleague Tamara Harvell. It was Ed who I approached with the idea of The Drive in September 2014 the day after Rod Alberts and I concocted it. Without hesitation he said State Farm is ‘in’ and it was his commitment that enabled me to know we could do this and put the planning in gear! Thank you, Ed!

We had an enthusiast event hosted by State Farm at US Cellular Coliseum later this afternoon. Stay tuned – less than 500 miles to go!
