Our normal photographer Alex was gone this month, but a couple other guys stepped up and shared some great photos of the event. Big thanks to David Nichols at Track Time Audio, Juha Nyman, and most of all Chris Batson for tons of pics. See David’s full set on Flickr Juha’s on Picasa, and Chris’ on Picasa.
