SPRINT CROSS COUNTRY SERIES Started their epic 3 day Independence weekend with a BANG at BACKBONE RACEWAY with an 8 hr challenge race from 6pm – 2am! This event may be the start of a cool annual affair with the racers all expressing major interest in returning for more night racing and team competition!

The SXCS 8 hr Challenge greeted its racers with perfect weather at 2900’ and a bright moonlit sky. Racers from all over New England, South East and the Mid-Atlantic converged on a Trail Pros prepped 7 mile course in Oakland, MD consisting of a flowy and technical race course.
