Munger Figure 8 Meet & Greet plus Awards, September 15, 2018

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.

94.5, The Moose FM covered this event with help from The Todd’s.

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.
