Thanks to everyone that came to Glenwoods first indoor trophy race. It was an awesome event. The racing was fast and close. Very glad to see some familar faces.
I thought the track was super dialed! So much fun to race, flowed very well and was fast.

70 entries for the event. Not too shabby if you ask me!

Thanks for coming up Mark! It was a tough battle between you and I. The restart really thru me for a loop! I had an excellent start the first time. And well you know what happen after the restart. You were fast, couldn't real you in, made a few too many mistakes.

I think Glenwood might have another trophy race sometime in April.
