Motor Mouth

Yes, Motor Mouth!   Many of you probably guessed from the hints that I gave you recently that Motor Mouth (aka Brian Goudge, our favorite Canadian) will be our announcer in the noon and evening gates.   We are very pleased to have this notable voice leading the Great Race events in each city as we make […]
