I wanted to run this one so bad, as I ran every race in the Southern Division leading up to the this race, but then the new born threw a money wrench in everything and I had to miss it. Would have loved to secure last place on such a large stage, lol.
This is a wonderful ambition. It would be really cool to run a race that really stretches you, comparative skill-wise.
adding on to that the best way to learn and get faster is to race with people who are better than you. the more races you do the faster yo will get.
That is why I jumped into the series and ran the first two races. Way above my pay grade, but learned alot.
These folks are FAST!
