Celebration Of Speed

It was a Celebration of Speed in Shelbyville, TN on Oct. 17, but it ended up being a victory celebration for Hillsboro's Chase Saathoff as well. 

The Hillsboro High School freshman took first in both of his races at the track an hour outside of Nashville, placing first in the Open Expert class and the 450cc class. 

While some of Saathoff's family wasn't able to be at the event in person, they were able to watch the race live on Facebook.
