From Robby Swan: Was listening today and heard you guys talking about wishing Mt Washington had a special event. Well, it’s actually not dead! Next Level Racing has put up huge prizes(3 nice simulators) for this years “RacecraftTV Race to the Summit”. Qualifiers are open right now in time attack. Top 20 will be in a super session, 3 runs per person…
