The 2015 SMRI Banquet went off without a hitch and everyone appeared to have an excellent time. The food at El Pinto was perfect as usual, and the company was second to none. I thought I'd drop a few pictures on here to share the event with those who couldn't make it, and if you have a pic or two you'd like added feel free to send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks go out to SMRI Timing & Scoring officer Rylee Hahn and SMRI Treasurer Katrina D'Aloia for putting this shindig together. Thanks, also, to all our sponsors who came out to show support for SMRI heading into the 2016 season including Nico at Los Lunas Motorsports, Steve at Moto-Authority, Scott and Stuart at Desert Desmo LLC, Demo at Evangelo's Cocktail Lounge, living legend Hurley Wilvert of HTW Racing, Frances and Marc from OCD Custom Cycles & Repair, Matt from The Desert Sky Ranch LLC, Yolanda from Western States Fire Protection, Jaime Smith from Bifocal Films, CJ Rodden from Law Tigers (who is going to join us racing next year!!!), Alan from Santa Fe Two Way, and Brian from Speedin' Motorsports.

The "Kraut Racing Team" shows of its hardware. Frances Sayre (left), Marc Beyer (center left), Lance Echols (center right), and Jaime Smith (right) all took home hardware including the first ever "Most Improved" award shared by Echols and Smith!
Kimberly Prichard (left) and Jaime Smith (right) do their best to kill Scott Cloninger while Lance Echols watches. They were nearly successful and it took Scott several enchiladas to recover.
