“It was kind of a tough race against really good competitors,” Gracie Todd said of helping Sheldon to a second-place team finish. “I feel like it’s not my best but I feel like I did my best for today.

“It’s a great start actually,” Mestler said. “It’s kind of nice to get an early season preview of some other good teams.”
