Just one race to recap this week. Javan and Chass made the two-hour trek to Pigeon Forge, TN for the ARC-favorite Midnight 8k Road Race. This race and it’s long flat straightaways has treated the Collective well in the past - Stuart has been a repeat winner and Javan has now PR'ed here twice.
While Javan and Chass were disappointed that they weren’t able to fit in a quick trip to Dollywood, both guys took advantage of opportunity to get in a quality race effort. This event is usually competitive and this year was no exception. The Collective boys battled with frequent rivals (and Knoxville studs) Ethan Coffey (2nd) and Stewart Ellington (6th), among others. In the end, Chass held on to a strong 3rd place finish and Javan pulled off 4th in a sprint finish. Nice racing, fellas.
