Munger 2019 Figure 8 Championship Meet & Greet plus Awards

It was a beautiful day to celebrate the 2019 USA Figure 8 grand finale sponsored by Garber Chevrolet Midland. This race showcases the most elite figure 8 drivers in the State of Michigan and thankfully, USA has the privilege of presenting their talent to fans. There were 42 FWD Drivers and 30 RWD Drivers.
The afternoon began with an interactive session for fans to get up close and personal with drivers and their FWD & RWD cars. Questions were asked, autographs signed, treats handed out, and family fun thrived!

Proud drivers surrounded by family!

Families that Race together, Stay together … The Hartsock’s!

Debo’s Body Shop Family – Brad and Chaz Debo.

The comedy duo of Todd White and Todd Kerr – Shake and Bake!

Long time racers become fast friends and part time comedians.
