Those who have known a murder victim have in their memories a clear point. When they heard the news their life changed instantly and radically. There was life before there was life after. You can be victim of the rage or you can combat the darkness with light. The family of Robert Quiroga chose to turn on a light instead of cursing the darkness. The http://www.robertquiroga.org well is the light switch perhaps Robert Quiroga and gymmates Andrew Gover were looking down watching the 11 bouts that were well quite exciting! To Andrew Gover’s unknown murderer if you are still alive you can cop a plea. The day got started with an up and coming Tejana super star singing the national anthem followed by the rumble of bikes. San Antonio was throwing a party in the name of its first champ!

Ryan Karl had to pull victory in his feature bout out in the later phases against a determined Armando Cardenas who well this was the official bout of the day open division. It had strategy skill and action! Presenters included reps from Wal-Mart, Henry’s Puffy Taco, James Cantu, Nico Lahood, Kathrine Torres, Rebecca Martinez, La Prensa they helped sponsor the community fiesta in Robert Quiroga's name.
