Another one in the books. Thanks to everyone who make this happen!!! We are fortunate to have 4 really good tracks and people who truly care about what we do. I was fortunate to make all the forgass races this season and had a really good time. I got to say a lot of the drivers improved their skills. PJ and Johnathon good job. I will see you guys next season eager to race!!!! OH by the way HI Greg!
