IronMind®’s intrepid reporter, Chad Coy, said, “I had a great hold and placed fifth.  I dislocated my middle finger on the second flip of the tire and placed 11th.  The finger hurt on the wheels and I loaded four, but in the slowest time.  I dropped from 8th to 10th.  I accomplished my goals of walking out on my own two feet, I was not last and, well, a finger is no big deal . . . 21 years of football and a dislocated finger is nothing . . . it only hurts my typing!”
