2013 Byron Wheelstand Contest Winner

And the winner is..... Ricky Kirkpatrick  in his 1981 Chevy Malibu WAGON.  Friends it was, in a word  - awesome.  He was runner up last year and the big winner this year.  The wheelstanding action was cut short by Mother Nature and it was too bad there wasn't a crystal ball to foretell the incoming rain because it seemed some of the favorites took it easy on the first go round, holding out for the finals but not Mr. Kirkpatrick.  He was off and running or should I say flying and he rode (flew) away with the coveted final prizes, Best Overall and Longest Wheelstand.  He was so close last year he wasn't going to go home empty handed.  Driving (pun intended) home the idea to make each run count because you never know it could be your only shot at the win.  Now, I'll let the man and his wagon do the rest of the talking for me.
