RA Racer Derby
February 13, 2008
The track is set up in the upper breezeway and Wayne Tyson and Rod check final alignment of the track. Wayne tips the starting gate and we are off on the 2008 RA Racer Derby!
The starting line is a busy place with Wayne starting the races, Rod recording winners, and Johnny Huffman and Jason Medina checking car weights.
The cars are lined up for style judging as well as speed.
|Johnny and Stan are at the finish line to judge the winners. It is not easy! Some of the races are very close.|
This is Scottie's night to join us, so he enjoyed joining in on the race. Wayne, Jason and Johnny look on.
Christopher Saurez and Kevin Lopez place their cars for one of the final races.
The winners line up for the presentation of the prizes. Rod presents an award of a flashlight to Grayson Bartlett. The flashlight refers to Jesus' instruction to us that we are to be the salt of the Earth and the light of the world,
