Hello Losi race fans!
In the last month I have been busy building a couple of offroad tracks and recouping from a nasty Flu. But I was able to attend the 2nd annual Nitrocross State Championships. The event is held at the world famous Nitro Pit and includes gate motocross style starts and a unique qualifying format. This years attendance almost doubled last years and made for some exciting racing.
My good friend and fellow team mate Billy Fischer was the man to beat and proved it by Tqing both pro Buggy and Truggy classes. I thought I had a little something for him but he was pretty much perfect throughout the day and all I had was not good enough. Both of my 2.0 vehicles were awesome and I was able to qualify 2nd in truggy but a tangle with lapped traffic took me out of the race and ended any chances of a podium finish.
In buggy I had a rough time in qualifying and transfer ed out of the simi with Losi driver Clint Wachter. This landed us in the 9th and 10th spot on the grid.
Local Losi driver's Chris Wheeler was awesome in the qualifying and ended up starting right behind Fischer. New Losi team drivers Trevor Clement and Charles Hicks qualified well and set up the 20 lap main for a possible Losi podium sweep.
When It was all said and done Billy ran a flawless race and took the win without too much of a fight, I was able to battle back to a second with Mike Morales rounding out the podium.
I am looking forward to the upcoming ROAR fuel Nationals in July and would like to see a Losi on top once again.
