A really solid start to our season on Friday! The boys and girls both won all 4 races on Friday, which speaks volumes for the amount of work everyone put in over the summer! Consistency is key in our sport. Keep putting in the work, and big things will continue to happen as we work together towards our TEAM goals this season.
Our first goal is geared towards the League Championships on October 12th during fall break. Every race up to that point is practice. I want to keep encouraging everyone to continue to try different race plans, take chances, make moves, and to have the courage to push hard at different points in the race to test your limits. It is okay to take chances in races! Even if the chances you take don't turn out how you expected it's an excellent way to learn more about yourself as a racer. There is never failure in trying!
Labor Day Practice
We will have practice on Labor Day (Monday) at 6 p.m. Meet at the Vista track. If you are going out of town for the long weekend please plan accordingly to be back in time for practice. We will be doing our annual Vista 500 workout that evening.
