The 2016 Reedy International Off-Road Race of Champions was one of the most epic battles ever seen on dirt and I was lucky enough to be part of the experience! A huge congratulations and thank you must go out to the organizers, creators, participants, families, friends and spectators who made the 2016 Reedy such an incredible event. Everyone was amazing!
