McDonald's Twilight Night Series Results

As the saying goes, time flies when you are having fun! After three heroic Wednesday nights, the 2018 McDonald's Twilight Nights Race Series is in the books. Thank you for participating, inviting a friend, and making lemonade out of lemons. For what has been a somewhat lackluster snow year, you'd never know with the great conditions and Wednesday night stoke at the base of Purgatory where winter was alive and well. The cover of last week's Telegraph captured the spirit of the event with grinning racers talking off into the dark.
