Team Hix

Well Ron Hix and Brian Blume chaulked up a nice win in the endurance race at Road America over this past weekend , and they
totally left the competition in the dust by 57 second advantage ,
Ron took the bike out and road it like a rocket as he scooped 20
laps ,then pitted for fuel and gave the bike to Blume with nearly
nothing left on tires but an incredible lead ,then Blume proceeded to take the victory home .
