First Gravel Race of the Season

After doing some minor last-minute repairs on the wagon, we were all set for our first gravel rallycross of the season - the MLRC rallycross on June 26. On the one hand, we were excited to be racing, but on the other - scared to know how we would stack up against other drivers on gravel. We knew we were fast on snow and had grown fairly confident on it, but gravel was a completely different beast - speeds were faster, horsepower actually mattered, and at MLRC a gravel event meant the track was changed to run through a forest section that was riskier and that we haven't seen for a year.
