Ocala, Fla.—March 24
Just after the thud of the rail echoed through the stadium, an excited “Whoop!” of joy followed.
“Oops, was I too loud?” Andre Thieme said sheepishly in the press conference of his in-gate celebration. He can be forgiven—that rail thudding meant he just won $350,000. “It’s a big difference between first and second, so I was maybe a little too loud, but I was very excited,” Thieme admitted.
