Last year Lisa and Waitingintheshadows AKA Reba were one of two wild cards to run in the BOTB. There was a little bit of controversy with us letting wild cards in and how we did it – some thought they should not of been allowed, some thought they could not compete – well let us tell you – the score board showed differently. Both wild cards showed they were giving everything they had and headed up the chute to win the race. Placing in the Top 10 was nothing to hang their heads about in 2013.
Lisa and Reba decided early on this year that they were not going to wait to see if there was a wild card being offered they were going to get qualified and run their race in 2014. Congrats on your qualifying and we love having you back in the line up!
