Out of the 13 races there was only one that was rained out so that’s a success in and of itself. But by the last couple of TT’s most were hoping for some precipitation to help get rid of the sand and maybe the heat.
After the TT we held the awards ceremony under the trees of Lake Bryan. Joel came out and served up hamburgers, hot dogs, and watermelon. Joe provided the participation awards, some for “special” categories. The top male and female in a few different categories received gift cards from various businesses in town. All had a good time.
Scoring was based on the following:
- 10 points for starting a TT
- 10 points for finishing a TT
- 10 points for each 1% improvement
- Points for top 10 finish in each category: 30 for first, 20 for second, 15 for third, 12 for fourth, 10 for fifth, 8 for sixth, 6 for seventh, 4 for eighth, 2 for ninth, 1 for tenth.
