With the race drawing near practice runs have been scheduled weekly. We recently completed our first of many with great success. It was a wonderful learning experience for our new members and a great refresher for our returning veterans. We got special treatment as we were escorted through Tupelo by police officers on motorcycles. They were a big help and made maneuvering through town a lot easier. Memories were definitely made and we are looking forward to making a lot more at the race.
