A souped up Mustang and driving team from the 2010 Fireball Run stopped in Liberal Tuesday in order to earn points in the crosscountry race by getting a photograph of them clicking their heels together at Dorothy’s House and Museum. Pilot Bob Stephens of Tampa, Fla., and his co-pilot Scott Jensen of Seattle, also got to meet Dorothy during their stop in Liberal. They also handed out Missing Child posters for the young woman they are racing for. She was last seen in 2001 when she went missing at the age of 16.
