The arenacross season is in full swing this month and the Future West series has quite a few heavy hitters lined up. This past weekend the series pulled into the Armstrong Agriplex in Armstrong, BC on October 21/22. Some of our pro athletes came out to join in the action in the Pro Am Lites and the Open Pro classes. James Lissimore sent some images from Armstrong for us to share.

Pettis pulls off the start and doesn’t look back. He had his starts nailed and this was key for the tight Armstrong track.
