These dedicated riders came to this national event from all over the country. Sunday, they told us some of the keys to fly around the race track.

"Get out of the gate well, get through the turns well. Get through the whole track well. Need to keep your momentum going throughout the whole track to carry your speed," said Expert Rider Seth Michalowski.
