Our 2nd regular show of 2017 was a success. 370 entries total with 124 again in the Open 5D. Ashley Broussard ran the fastest barrel time of the day with a 15.907 on Ashleys Royal Jet. Fastest pole time was a 21.312 run by Lani Trahan on Docs Chrome Star. We had several new members join and there is still time for others to join and qualify for our year-end finals with 10 shows remaining. Thank you to everyone that purchased raffle tickets or donated items. All funds raised are used towards our year-end finals. Seth Roy and Taylor Fontenot began a Facebook Live Feed during our show. Look for this again at our future shows as a way for connecting to us if you cannot be there yourself or have to leave early. Make plans to join us at our next show on Saturday April 1, 2017.
