2015 Results & Highlights

The 2015 presidents race season began with a vicious Easter Bunny attack on opening day, and stayed competitive through the final homestand. A sixth racing president Calvin Coolidge, sponsored by the White House Historical Society, was added over Independence Day weekend, and proceeded to get in everybody’s way, racking up a dozen victories in the second half of the season.
