Hello from Utah!

August 2, 2009

Hello McGriff race fans…

I haven’t had a chance to post to the site before now!  It has been a very exciting weekend here at Miller Motorsports Park.  Hershel finished one lap down due to a blown tire in the front stretch.  Everything else went well and the facility is gorgeous.  I’ll post pictures and video after arriving home late tonight.

Personal note from Hershel:  “Thanks everybody for your overwhelming support. When the tire started to chip, I should have known to come in for a tire change, but Jr & I thought I could make it to the end. Was a great weekend with friends and family.”

Cheers to all…
