Tools of the trade:
Mamiya 7ii / 80mm
Kodak Portra 400

Luke is one of the nicest (fast guys) you’ll ever meet, so come out and show your support.
I can guarantee this will be a rad event!
This will be the first year where I won’t be in attendance at the Mash anniversary race. I’m sure Mike and the crew will have more information coming along for the three-year anniversary race on May 5th, but for now, this is all I’ve got.

Ugalde’s artwork is always so insane!
