      We had a nice little group cheering on Valley Vette's team last night. You could certainly hear us when our team members won. It was fun to watch Marcus Crawford win 2 races in his new C-8 Vette. As of now, Firebird hasn't posted the team standing, but I'm betting we're still in first place for Copper Cup. Thanks to those who came out to watch!

       Thanks to everyone who came out to support the team in the Fairly Reliable Bob's Club Challenge #4. It was a fun night with team member Ed Wong winning first place in the #2 Bracket. Our team is now #1 in the standings for the Copper Cup Bracket. Thanks to the team members for all their efforts. Lots of pictures were taken. Please remember to come out on July 30th for Race #5. Again the first 10 spectators that mention Fairly Reliable Bob's get in Free!
