    Very excited for Josh to get the win here. However, how can you pick a relay where one guys get to pick his whole team before the other guy even gets one pick. Of course Josh’s team won that race

    • Gold Medal Mel Stewart says:

      Wonkabar23…that was discussed afterward. Bob Placak (event founder), who is always working to make the event more enjoyable, will make an adjustment in the future to keep the relay more competitive.
