After his performance at the 2014 Race Across the West Marko Baloh of Slovenia is a heavy favorite at the Silver State 508.  However, previous guests David Haase and Adam Bickett look to give him some strong competition.  We visit with Marko this evening to discuss his views of the upcoming race, strengths, weaknesses and, hopefully, a bit of race insight for one of the best in the sport.  Just a few of Marko's achievements:
