Peter Turgeon Lives Up to The True Meaning of Honesty

Peter Turgeon, a member of the "Reggie Powered" Racing Engines Team, lives
up to the true meaning of honesty. On Saturday, July 9, 2011 at Maryland Int'l
Raceway Peter found an envelope on the ground while walking through the pits.
But this wasn't just any old envelope; this was a bank envelope with money inside.
Some would have said "Oh boy this is my lucky day" but not Peter.
His first thought was to return the money to it rightful owner. And that he did;
he took the money to the tower and the money was return to its owner.

During our interview with Peter we asked him what made him turn the money in and
he said it was just the right thing to do. He felt that when you do good things for others
you in return will be blessed. And as fate would have it; later in the day as Peter was
racing the steering wheel on his GTO came off during a launch off the starting line
and Peter was able to bring the car to a safe stop without any damage.

Belief and Honesty has its rewards.
