Speed Week trophies

Just curious if anyone has received their 2019 Speed Week trophies yet.

I "thought" that they generally arrived somewhere around Christmastime.

 Very few trophy's to send out from the 2019 Speed Week shouldn't take long to get that completed.  We all learned the gas pedal not only goes down but also up during the run and how much steering our rides had not fun at all.   :laugh:

It's still a bit early to look for your trophy in the mail, however The SCTA seems to take longer and longer to get stuff done these days. It took us two years to get our 2016 record certification ,  Perhaps a "Certificate of Achievement" would be appropriate , stating that you made a run with out spinning, falling over,  and managed to stay between the lines !   :friday

A couple of years ago, we were hoping for an achievement award of some sorts for going 4 miles to the 3-mile marker.
