For those of you who have never entered the Bus Roadeo before, we extended a personal invitation to you. You put your skills to the test, this was an opportunity to hone your skills on the keen edge of competition.
One final note, we would like to thank our Sponsors, as without their support, this event would not be possible.
Glad we saw you there, and keep on Bussing.
