    “The racing in Waco was a definite success as we accomplished everything we hoped for and more,” said head coach Dave O’Neill. “I was impressed with all five crews, and it was good to see them put everything we’ve been working on all fall together on race day. We certainly grew as a team, and there was some real competition within the team. A shoutout to all the wonderful people in Waco for putting together a terrific event. We really appreciate the effort their work and hospitality.”
