Greeting the fans and signing autographs.


# Fan Appeal!

Meet & Greet – The only time RWD and FWD mingle.

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.
