Delivered when we needed it

This event truly is happening because of your team's effort. Without it, we wouldn’t have been able to open a whole new section of the venue and would have had to stop ticket sales much earlier. Thanks for the terrific work. Please pass along my appreciation to everyone on the Bridge Brothers and Topper team. The really great thing is, not only does the bridge look great, but it was delivered when we needed it! I wanted to let you know that 110 million people around the world will also see it during the race. Let's do more together in the future.
