Race day

 Nate and Peter warming up before the Jr race.

 Fixxie sitting on our stuff making sure that she would not be left behind.

 She was a trip as she would not move until she was in the car.

 Giovanni at the start of the race.  He took a 4th place today.

 Jake at the start of the race.

 Lowell taking to the kids before the jr race this morning.

 Joe took off and then Nate and Kaleb joined him before Garrett and then Peter joined in and then they lapped the field and before Nate lead out Kaleb for the win, Peter 2nd, Nate 3rd.

 Nate on the front of the break pulling down the finish straight.

 The ISCorp jr team that raced the 1,2,3 race.

 Nate 1st, Kaleb 2nd and Kevin 3rd in the 1,2,3 race.

The kids raced awesome today as Joe took off in the jr race and then Nate and Kaleb took off and joined him.  A few laps later Garrett went from the field and then shortly after that Peter went and Kaleb went back and towed them to a waiting Nate and Joe.  A few laps later Max went off and then Nate and the gang lapped the field.  Max stayed away and took 6th in the race and Kaleb 1st, Peter 2nd, Nate 3rd, Garrett 4th (?) and Joe 5th (?) Kevin 7th.  SO the ISCorp took the top 7 spots.  Then I got ready and raced the Master 40-49 race ( yeah I am old and turn 48 in May ).  I hung out in the front half of the 40 plus racers today and finished in the middle of the field which is just fine for me.  I took a short break and raced the 1,2,3 race and that was a tough one for sure.  I was ok for the most part of the race and I pulled with 2 laps to go so I could see Nate's finish. I am sure glad that I did as I was able to catch him taking it to the line for 1st place with Kaleb 2nd and Kevin 3rd.  Of course it would not have happened without the team of Peter, Joe Garrett, Max, Matt doing alot of work to make it happen.  Great work guys and a big thank you to Jessie for coming along to watch and cheer but most of all take care of Fixxie while we raced.  Now I need to get my feet up and relax.  Later..
