GRAND PRIX OF CLEVELAND
A RACE PACKED FULL OF EXCITEMENT
THE MONKEY REPORT:
Back from another exciting trip... this time to Cleveland, Ohio where I encountered every kind of weather imaginable. Luckily, the rain stopped by race day and it was sunny and clear for the 25th annual Grand Prix of Cleveland. It's a very unique race as it takes place on a fully functioning airport runway (closed for the race). The airport locale led to some fast racing and plenty of action and accidents on the track.
Over on the stage, a new Miss Grand Prix of Cleveland was appointed. Congratulations to Skylar Starks. Also of note and congratulations to them as well, are 1st Runner Up, Jessica Gidley and 2nd Runner Up, Ashley Deihl. All of the finalists did a fantastic job and wowed the crowds. A surprise to everyone, including 2005 Miss Grand Prix of Cleveland, Sarah Blanton, was when her boyfriend appeared on stage and proposed to her. He is now officially her fiance.
Here are some photos from the race weekend.
