first is koopa on his first run out showing his distaste for some of the course.

now an actuall run of koopa.

dangerdan out there driving the course

and crangle out at his only out of town event with us.

in closing it was a rather good event. it was ran really smoothly for it being a first event. then turnout was somewhat low, but that just ment more practice for the drivers there. good times!!
