Complete Results From The 2015 Trans America Challenge

The 2015 Trans America Challenge is over and most of the competitors are back home.  The competitors had a great course and from what I hear, they all enjoyed themselves.  The purpose of this summary is to recognize all of the competitors and to highlight the winners of the three classes.

The overall winners were Peter and Zoe Lovett who were both good and consistent throughout the rally.  Congratulations to them!
