Dressed as members of the Lewis and Clark expedition, Jim Stanley, 79, of Bonner Springs, Kan., left, and Mike Calwell, 69, of Mission, Kan., signaled the start of the Missouri River 340 race with ringing shots from their rifles. Calwell has been starting each race with a bang since the very first Missouri River 340 race in 2006. He said that the rifles were exact replicas of one of the 13 rifles that were originally issued to the Lewis and Clark expedition.
