Justin is on the way home. By the sounds of his last call, we will have an interesting report coming shortly.Â At the moment, he is in Western PA and a little more than a bit behind schedule.
In theÂ meantime – results are posted all overÂ for the race:
Official: Dirt Sweat and GearsÂ
Solo GoatÂ - good job [...]
