Wanda Bernard of Lil Bit Transport is another winner. Wanda is an OOIDA member from Baldwin, Mich. She and her husband, Michael Cwikiel, are registered for both days.
Wanda’s early registration won a free suite for three nights at an award-winning resort near the Speedway. The Great Wolf Lodge is recognized as one of the nation’s top family resorts.
