January 2018 - Race Results

I have to apologize for the quality of these videos.  Watching them at full screen will produce a more blurry image than normal.  I had a technology issue this month and had to use a different editing software.  Looks like I need to adjust the export settings to for a higher quality.  Hopefully by next month I'll have it worked out.  :)
