Editors Note- I would again like to thank Alex Mayes for his photo essay that have published over the last two days. Not many of us get to enjoy the NHRS events, I flet that Alex's pictures and captions took the readers to the event. If you have not reviewed the trip report check out the EXTRA editions publish last night and this evening.
