"It is nice to finally get to race. It has been awhile since I got to race. I was just so excited to get out there. It is always weird with the trials because your primary goal is just to move on, so it is hard going in with that mentality but it also helps relax you."

Jordan Hasay, Heat 2 (7th Place)
