Friday night lights would have the BOTB Riders getting ready for the Slot Race on Saturday. Brad Shirey came in and smoked 3 cans and the rest of field was right there behind him. Going into Saturday we had no clue who would take the title. However, walking around you could see the fire in a lot of the riders eye that no one was gonna hold back.
The weekend had some salty BOTB Riders and Open Riders as well. The BOTB Riders were there to take the win and each one fought for it as they entered the gates. It would be a Repeat of Troy Crumrine and Imafrenchmanprincess for the win. Congrats to all the money winners and all the qualifiers who made the Slot Race possible.
