And Robert Miller, the Pro Stock winner had a good shake down

    MRANN - Keith Alosi and Wayne Weidemier

    Here is the MRANN video from Blue Wing Flat. Please excuse the error I made in the video title, my fault entirely. Once again I’m indebted to the efforts of Brittany Hutchings as she took care of the video duties. Many thanks to her and hopefully she can continue to help me.
