Missoula, MT, WPH Press, 1/21/19-

The 2019 R48 8 Montana Red Death marks the 52nd event in the history of the Race 4 Eight tour, with the tour spanning 16 states in the R48’s first eight seasons. The 2019 R48 Montana Red Death will feature the top eight pros on the R48 Men’s Pro tour, with the “Elite 8” ranked R48 pros joined by 16 qualifier hopefuls, to include R48 #9 and SR48 #2 Marcos Chavez, R48 #10 Shorty Ruiz, current collegiate national champion Leo Canales, Jr., Irish and USHA junior national champion Sean Kerr, and a number of top stars from North America and Ireland.

In it’s first year as an official R48 stop, the Montana Red Death was voted “R48 Newcomer of the Year” by the R48 pros and was a serious contender for R48 stop of the year. Complete with endless hospitality, enthusiastic and knowledgeable fans, a beautiful facility and exciting junior handball clinics, the Montana Red Death promises to kickoff off 2019 in style.
