It seems that the Tuf Racing team never fails to find the right person to put together a great season of Arenacross. Last year they did that with Chad Johnson, the defending Champion, and this year with Jeff Gibson. Jeff is the point’s leader and has been on a rail lately sweeping both main events on Friday and Saturday at the Broadbent Arena in Louisville, Kentucky. We welcome Jeff to talk about his season so far and his strategy to maintain this momentum he has going.
