Thanks to our sponsors, 4M Industries and Munk's Motors, and to our crew, Gregg Grooters, Greg Luckinbill, and Merritt Collins, for a very successsful weekend! We were very competitive all weekend, qualified 3rd, ran as high as 2nd despite suffering heavy damage from an unfortunate accident with a Volvo on lap 4 of the 20-lap race, yet soldiered on to retain 3rd and finish on the podium! Great job, guys!
