OnStar Add-On Now Available



Many of the new vehicles offered at Checkered Flag stores are either available with, or automatically include navigation services, roadside assistance, or hands free calling.  For people like me who may have purchased their vehicles from Checkered Flag a few years ago, when these services were not so widespread, there is a new option.

Starting this week, auto owners can pick up a new version of the top rated OnStar system from their local BestBuy store.  In past years, OnStar was only available on GM vehicles.  Now OnStar is offering a new product called OnStar FMV (For My Vehicle) system…

Tensions High at Virginia Beach Challenge




Now, many of you Checkered Flag fans may not have heard about the 10th Annual Mid-Atlantic Hermit Crab Challenge that took place this weekend at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.  And, if you did, you probably didn't realize what a big deal this event really is. 

After months of unending hermit crab training in preparation, this weekend's event was filled with tension and hope.  Some contestants found the excitement, and perhaps the heat, to be overwhelming.  A young contestant from Suffolk even vomited on the reporters shoes before her interview!
