serving oxygen from our oxygen bar at a motor cross race that was 6 laps

big race was Sunday.
morning Mr. Snodgrass came back before his race and brought 6 friends with
him to get oxygen before racing. Mr.
Snodgrass was competing against tougher competition and took first place
in his race. He had hardly
broken out in a sweat after the race.
His buddy was in
a different class and led the race from the start until the third lap when
he fell off his bike and down a 20 ft embankment.
It took a while to climb back up to his bike and start racing
again. 4 riders had passed
him during this time and he took off after them, passing all 4 riders and
taking 1st place. These
4 riders were too exhausted to ride aggressively and were easy to pass. They did not have oxygen before the race.

better than they had ever finished before and credited the oxygen bar for
