posted Aug 18, 2014, 1:22 PM by President RMQMA

What an Awesome day we had at the track on Saturday for our "Try-it-you-like-it" Event!

We had 6 children RSVP and 9 show up! What a great turn-out. It looked like all had a good time and were able to give a race car a try.
The ages ranged from 4 1/2 to 12 and it looked like all were naturals.

If you had plans and were not able to make it, send us an email and we will put you on the list for our next event.

We want to THANK the Morrison family for the use of their three cars for the event!
