GR Speed’s Ron (Crusty) McKey is starting his racing series today! Ron will be racing his 300 Meter Time Trial AND 5,000 meter points race today.

Morgan and Nina are competing in the 10,000 meter points and elimination race this evening. That’s 50 laps on the 200 meter track. This event is a very tough and tedious race! As there are 2 races happening in the same event. The winner of the event is determined by the skater who collects the most points by the end of the race without being eliminated. So the race is at the front and the back. Points are given to the first 2 skaters, 2 points for 1st and 1 point for 2nd. The next lap the last skater crossing the line is eliminated. If they have points they are eliminated as well.
