Pua selects pit crew contest winner

Pua Sawicki announced the winner of a contest to work in the pits as member of Team MATA at the 24 Hours of Adrenalin Solo World Championships in Monterey, California, August 31 to September 2.

Terry Crandell of La Mesa, California, will support Sawicki in her bid for the world championship title. The mechanical engineer was chosen from mechanics, policemen, fans, and more who wanted to be there. All wrote letters saying why.

Crandell's wife Bethany actually wrote the letter for him, and it really touched Sawicki's heart. She really felt this reward would mean so much to Terry and his family including daughters Grace, 4, and Rebecca, 2, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The Crandells both work full time and care for their children, including juggling countless appointments for their youngest daughter, but Terry maintains a wonderful attitude and always finds time to pursue his passion on two wheels.

The runners up were Lyna Saffell of Sandy, Utah, and Jonathan Puskas, of Lake Oswego, Oregon.
