Jordan Taylor, fresh off his podium finish at the 24 Hours Of Le Mans with Corvette Racing is chopping of his splendiferous mullet for charity. While I'm sure everyone will be sad to see that beautiful masterpiece go, at least it's for a noble cause.
Taylor, 2013 Grand-Am Champion in the Daytona Prototype class, and hilarious Twitter account possessor, began growing his mullet out in January of 2013 and will cut it off as part of a charity raffle at this year's Watkins Glen 6 Hour. The grand prize winner will receive two paddock passes, tours of Wayne Taylor and Corvette Racing, and a ride around in a Daytona Prototype. They also will get to participate in the ceremonious cutting of the exalted mullet.
Proceeds from the charity will go to two youth summer camps, Camp Boggy Creek, and Camp Anokijig. Hopefully Taylor doesn't chicken out on cutting his mullet, though it would be understandable based on this interaction the young driver had at Le Mans:
Godspeed, Jordan Taylor. You (and your mullet) have warmed your way into our hearts.
