The most anticipated night of USA Figure 8 drivers is over and the season has finished for another year. It was sponsored by our 2018 Sponsor of the Year – Mike Syska and Advanced Tree Experts, Inc.
It began with a meet and greet so drivers could interactive with their fans by signing autographs and handing out treats.
This lasted about an hour and a half, then drivers had to get cars back to the pit area and report for a drivers meeting before the race could begin.
Next up was awards for the season.

Now, it was time for ACTION! Green Flag!
Figure 8 racing is about timing. It requires quick acting so the driver completes his laps in a twisting motion without getting caught in the intersection or stuck in a jam around the tire. The checkered flag is the winner.
