OFF TO THE RACE!
The month of May means a lot of different things to a lot of people. For some, it’s all about spring. For my family, though, it means one thing … my birthday has arrived! Just kidding! There’s an event in May that’s much bigger than my birthday. You probably know where I’m going with this. I am, of course, talking about the Indianapolis 500! We bought our tickets and they arrived in the mail. Every day, I walk past them and, every day, I get more excited. This year, my wife and I are bringing along our oldest son, Spencer. This will be his first year going to the race. To add to his excitement, Spencer will also be going with one of his best buddies who’s coming out from California. He’ll be joining us at the race along with his dad. Speaking of the Indy 500, be sure to check out this month’s Truck of the Month. We decided to do something a little different to honor the Indy 500 pace car. For the past 20 years, a Chevy car has led the pack. In fact, Chevy has had an exclusive deal with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 2002 to provide the pace car, along with other support vehicles. This
looking forward to in May. My wife and I will be heading down to Kentucky for the Kentucky Oaks, the horse race before the Kentucky Derby. It will mark our second time going to the race, and I have no doubt it will be a lot fun. Of course, one of the things I’m most excited for this month is the nice weather. I’m sure just about everyone is looking forward to clear skies. I just want to break out the golf clubs! Last month, during a GM conference out west, I may have taken a little extra time for myself to play a few rounds of golf. All joking aside, the real most important day in May is Mother’s Day, which is on Sunday, May 13. I want to send a big shoutout to my mom for being a total rock star! She instilled in me many of the values I live by and shaped the man I am today. I also want to give a shoutout to my wife. She has been a fantastic role model for our two boys. I know that one day, Spencer and Conner will look back with nothing but admiration. To wrap up this edition of the newsletter, my best piece of advice to you this month is don’t forget to call your mom! Reach out to all the special mothers in your life this Mother’s Day, whether it’s your own mom, your spouse, your sibling, or your daughter. Wish her the best and let her know just how much you appreciate all she does. Trust me, she will appreciate it in return.

FOOD SUBSCRIPTION BOXES TRYING NEW CUISINE HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER
Eating the same foods over and over gets old, but it’s often hard to be adventurous when you don’t want to waste money on unappetizing food. Enter the food subscription box. When you sign up for a food subscription box, you’ll have the opportunity to sample new foods without committing much money — or time at the grocery store — to the cause. Here are two tasty food subscription boxes that’ll make your mouth water. TRY THE WORLD Try the World believes that the most authentic way to discover a new culture from the comfort of your own home is through food. With two price points to choose from, Try the World sends you artisanal and gourmet foods from different cultures each month. Each box comes with a “culture guide” that includes the story behind each food, recipes that incorporate the products, and tips to enhance your food-tasting experience. Like most subscription boxes, you can’t choose which country’s foods you’ll sample. However, you can purchase individual items at Try the World’s online shop. Customers can pause or cancel their subscription any time, and pricing depends on the length of your subscription.
With this method, you can get seeds that will grow anywhere, but you may not get much flavor from their produce. Think of the watery, flavorless tomatoes you often find on sandwiches or burgers at fast-food restaurants. Row 7 hopes to change the status quo by developing seeds that burst with flavor and nutrients. By collaborating with chefs and farmers, Barber hopes to cultivate the flavorful foods that people want. Row 7 targets an audience of people who enjoy good-tasting food — in other words, all of us. The company hopes to capitalize on intrepid farmers who’ve been overlooked by the large seed companies and work with them to breed plants for flavor. Row 7’s seeds are all organic and have not been genetically modified. Not only will these plants add much-needed biodiversity back into the seed world, they’ll also grow into more nutritious food. “The goal of the company is not only to increase the flavor of vegetables, it’s to look at how we, as chefs, can change the culture of eating,” says Barber. We’ll have to wait and see what Row 7’s success looks like, as the company was only unveiled this year. Row 7’s goal to change the food culture in America is not in conflict with their goal to be in Walmart, and that’s pretty radical. GRAZE If you like variety, exciting flavor combinations, and wholesome snacks approved by a nutritionist, you’ll love Graze. With this food box subscription, customers create a personalized snacking experience, something that many food subscription services don’t offer! Once you set your preferences, Graze handpicks eight snacks for your box. After you’ve tried your snacks, you can tell Graze how well they know your taste buds. Unfortunately, Graze is not suitable for people with allergies. Their snacks are packed in a facility that also processes nuts, wheat, milk, soy, and egg, and cross-contamination is a strong possibility. Graze prices depend on the services and products you select, but a standard subscription starts at $13.99 per box. Like Try the World, you can purchase snacks separately from their online shop. Customers can pause their subscription for up to 12 weeks or cancel their deliveries at any time. Trying new food should be a fun, stress-free experience. Food subscription boxes allow you to sample new snacks and create foreign meals cheaply and from the comfort of your own home. Try a box the next time you’re feeling adventurous in the kitchen.
Is It Possible to Align Business With Values? THIS COMPANY THINKS SO
A number of high-profile businesses have made the news recently for their values-based decisions. This kind of decision-making brings up an interesting question: Can you promote your values through the way you do business? Take Row 7, a seed company founded by Dan Barber, a chef; Matthew Goldfarb, an organic seed grower; and Michael Mazourek, a professor of plant breeding and genetics. By cultivating a new brand of seeds that are grown for flavor, the company wants to change the way we think about food. Row 7 hopes they can produce seeds that will grow into produce that grocery stores like Walmart will carry. The three men care a lot about food and how it’s grown. The first episode of Netflix’s “Chef’s Table” follows Barber from farm to table as he hand-selects the ingredients he’ll be cooking with for that evening’s dinner.
Traditionally, seed companies develop seeds with adaptability in mind, such as a potato that can be grown in Idaho and on the East Coast. They cultivate breeds with the furthest reach and highest profit margins — it’s a one-size-fits- all approach.

Truck of the Month:
The Brand-New 2019 Corvette Z06
Trucks aren’t the only vehicle catching the eye of the public. Speeding into the spotlight is Chevrolet’s Corvette Z06. Its sleek, carbon-fiber build is turning the heads of the public and racers alike. The two corvette models being released are the 1LZ, the 2LZ, and the 3LZ. The 1LZ will have a nine-speaker audio system, a heads-up display, two 8-inch HD color displays, and a drive mode selector. The 2LZ and 3LZ models have additional features, including heated and vented seats, front parking cameras, a custom leather-wrapped interior package, performance data recorder and navigation, and many more. The Z06 series was cut from the same carbon materials as the C7.R race car, but it won’t be left in the dust. The vehicle is a powerhouse with a 650 horsepower and an available torque of 650 pounds. It’s equipped with an aluminum 6.2L V8 engine and can come equipped with either a seven-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Z06 can rock
60 mph in under three seconds, and you can zip past your competition while listening to your jams from the standard Apple CarPlay compatibility. There is an infotainment system installed within the vehicle that allows you to listen to your music at any time. Any driver is able to access the Chevrolet Infotainment System through the touch-screen display. The car also provides a 4G Wi-Fi connection that can hook up to seven different devices at once. Now you don’t have to rely on your phone service alone while on the road. The Hare Truck Center can barely contain their excitement for the new sports car. Be sure to keep an eye out for other 2019 lineups through the newsletter and don’t forget to follow our Facebook page: facebook.com/haretruckcenter. As always, if you’re as excited as we are and want to know more about the Z06, call our Truck Center today!

Road Trips Don’t Have to Be Painful
Summer is right around the corner, which means you’ll soon pile the whole family into the car, ready to brave the road for a vacation. Everyone knows that riding in the car for hours can be torture. But with a little creativity, you can turn the worst part of a long trip into a fun event. PACK A TRAVEL GAME When the excitement of the family vacation starts to wear off, keep the peace and entertain your kids with a travel game. Many board game manufacturers offer travel-sized versions that are easy to pack and play in the car.
have a car full of storytellers, try “Fortunately, Unfortunately.” The rules are simple. The first person starts by saying, “fortunately,” and mentioning something good about the road trip or the destination. The next person (moving clockwise) then follows by saying something “unfortunate” about the previous person’s statement. Take turns with every passenger in the car. If someone stumbles, they get a strike; three strikes and you’re out. The last passenger standing wins. We get it. Sometimes passengers don’t want to play games. Occasionally, they’d rather relax or take a nap. However, your listening material doesn’t have to be limited to Dad’s favorite music. Instead, consider listening to a family-friendly audiobook or podcast, which can make the longest and most boring parts of your trip an entertaining PLAY AN AUDIOBOOK OR PODCAST
Before your next road trip, consider purchasing digital Yahtzee, which packs all the fun of the classic game without the dice, or IQ Fit, a logic game with over 100 challenges. Both games cost around $10 and can provide hours of entertainment. INCLUDE THE WHOLE FAMILY Once the travel games no longer pique anyone’s interest, try an activity that can be fun for the whole family: a traditional road trip game. If you

Almost any popular book is available in audio form, but it can be hard to find an enjoyable podcast. “Transistor” is a science-focused podcast that explores subjects kids and adults will find fascinating. Or if you’re looking for something fictional, try “Storynory,” in which the narrator tells fairy tales and legends from all over the globe.
