For this race, I continued to work with Scott “Pyro” Raney and the U-37 crew (great guys and girls – REALLY positive about EVERYTHING), doing all the onboard video. We got some amazing stuff that no one had really seen before, and had a bunch of fun doing it.  It was a great weekend – J.W. even made the podium…
