Wow! 55 racers! It was a perfect day down on the farm with a bunch of cool people. I have to admit I was getting nervous as the parking area was filling up. Thankfully we had a great group of volunteers and only had a couple hitches during registration. With the big turn out there were plenty of costume and underwear laps to keep it entertaining. Greg made us laugh when he biffed the second wagon jump and proved that we are still too close to the goat pen. I'm pretty sure everyone had a great time given the compliments and the crowd that hung around into the night. We'll be back next with a few improvements for a larger crowd.
Thank you to:
