    Amazing effort by everyone involved. Thanks to the commentary team, Jordan, Lucas, and the rest of the racers for putting on a great show.

      Thank you. Expecting to get demolished but if I have fun it’ll be a smashing success anyway.

      You did really well man! Great racing, the first race was thrilling. Held your ground with the fastest out there, again man I had no idea you were an Alien Bambi. Great stuff.

      I don’t think I’m an alien… but that’s probably just me being too modest. The race was a lot of fun minus being taken out in race 1.
