Twin Cities Results and Summary May 18th, 2013
Weather hasn’t been playing nice lately, but the Twin Cities Crew was not going to let it win this time. As rain started pouring down, most area tracks were cancelling their events, but the crew at TCRP was busy prepping the track to make sure that the area drivers had a place to race on May 18th. With the sun finally popping out, the grandstands were filling up with spectators, and haulers were lined up filling up the pit area. After a delay, the track was finally prepped, and a very exciting night of racing was under way.
