Overview: Just ten seconds off the McQuaid AAA win, Evan Hilbert is coming down from Buffalo for the big race, as one of the favorites. This race has the most depth of all the Letter Races, however, and it will be no easy task. Traveling further is Georgia's Connor Old, with a 10th place finish at Wingfoot. Gitch Hayes was a Pre-State Invite winner, and Daniel Shephard is leading the team scoring race. North Rockland does look like the favorite, but there is plenty of shuffling that can occur.
