9 time EV Challenge Champs!!

We have done it again, placed first overall at the EV Challenge final event.  This year we had a low point total of 12 with 10 being the lowest you can get(like a golf score where lowest total wins).  We placed first in every category except for the Range event with the Modified MR2.  The Ranger placed third overall and finished one point out of first place with 22 points.  The EV12  team has been an amazing, tight knit group and has proven to be leaders among their peers.
