I can say this already, Stage Racing is yet another addition to long distance racing…We will see how strategies play out tomorrow for the top guys. It gets really technical tomorrow for sure …then of course there is SUNDAY!
Tomorrow will be 56 miles from Rockmart, Georgia to Weaverville, Alabama. Sunday is a 94 mile stage! Keep watching here for more!
