Corvette tour will lap the state

BOWLING GREEN, KY (AP) - A "One Lap of Kentucky" tour sponsored by the National Corvette Museum will take riders on a five-day tour of some of the state's top attractions.

The tour planned for next month is also being sponsored by the Kentucky State Police for the event, which will benefit the museum and the State Police's Trooper Island Camp for underprivileged children.

The trip begins Oct. 13 at the museum and will stop at sights like the Land Between the Lakes, the International Bluegrass Museum and the Louisville Slugger factory.

Organizers say drivers of Corvettes and all other vehicles are welcome on the tour, which costs $625 for the driver and $225 for a guest. The fee includes lodging for three nights and lunch.

Registration ends October 4.
