Right around this time about 365 days ago, Jason Siegel’s T-shirt design was voted as the official logo for the annual U.S. Army Ten-Miler race in Washington, D.C.
Siegel, a 2004 Hicksville High School graduate, took home the honors again this year and his design will be featured on over 30,000 race T-shirts on Oct. 9 during the world’s third largest 10-mile event, which is open to both citizens and military runners.
“I started kind of trying to think of ideas last year after I went to the event, taking all the mental images there and trying to remember stuff. The research took a little longer on this one,” said Siegel, a graphics designer at Rallye Motors.

Over 55,779 fans watched and waited with great anticipation at last Saturday’s 143rd Belmont Stakes. They waited for the sun to shine; it didn’t. They waited for the mud to turn back to Belmont’s trademark dirt; it wouldn’t. But on a day where the impossible seemed implausible, it happened.
Last year, 13-1 underdog Drosselmeyer took the third leg of the Triple Crown and this year saw much of the same with 24-1 shot Ruler on Ice.
Ruler on Ice delivered a huge upset, plowing through the mud to a three-quarter-length victory over Stay Thirsty. Brilliant Speed came in to show.

The fact that our daughter was chosen for such a distinct honor hasn’t only made us extremely proud; it connected our family to an important legacy that will always shine bright in the town of Hicksville.

It began with a text from my co-worker and good friend, Rich Forestano, asking, “Want to fly in a fighter jet?”
The day of that particular inquiry was May 11.
