Financials from August: Beginning Balance $10,140.62, deposits were $626.90, checks were $979.80, and largest check was to finish paying off our insurance for the year.
La Junta Event: Turn-out was low, 16-18 cars only. We didn’t get any cars from RMVR and only two cars from the La Junta performance drivers.
