Jake Wright 801 comp Report

This past weekend Jake Wright attended the 801 Utah club series competition.
Here is Jake in his own words.

"Well, I'm back from Utah and once again sunburned and covered in red dust...

The 2.2 Losi performed amazingly well all weekend. I finished in 9th place overall out of a field of 75 drivers, including the defending national champ and several other drivers who I would consider some of the best around. I had 3 perfect scores in 5 courses, but I made a few small mistakes on the last two courses that cost me a chance at the win.

It was great seeing the reaction of everyone while I was on course with the new rig. I don't think I've ever had so many cameras on me during a run I'm pretty sure the Losi didn't disappoint either... I had zero mechanical failures for the weekend, and completed all 5 courses easily. What was even more impressive was the insane, follow-the-leader, freecrawling after the competition I believe the Losi was the only shafty among 5 or 6 bergs pulling some pretty impossible lines... and the Losi handled all of them with ease.

But... enough talk, how about some video?

Here's the "bragging rights" lines from the weekend.
