Fishing Report

Like a lot of anglers, I've been restricted to staying home and waiting for the rain to subside.

In the last several years, most events simply came down to fuel mileage strategies and not much on track competitive racing activities. Typically, most of the exciting racing occurred in the last 10 to 30 laps of any event ...
