Summer Series at the Nitro Pit
Hello Losi race fans!
The last couple of weeks have been super hot out here in sunny Arizona. But this never seems to stop us crazies from racing!
The Summer series at the Nitro Pit kicked off last weekend and drew a large crowd to do battle the AZ Nitro way. In spite of the 108 temps racers from all over came out to kick off this years series. To spice things up a bit we use a starting gate for the summer series. This adds plenty of excitement to the program and is quite fun.
Both of my 2.0 vehicles were up for the challenge and I was able to secure the TQ in both classes. As the sun went down the temps began to be a bit more bearable and by main time it was quite nice out. The expert buggy main was a hard fought battle between myself and fellow team mate Chris Wheeler. Chris drove a great race and he was rewarded with the 20 lap win, good job Chris!
Gates starts for truggy are always a blast and the one for this main did not disappoint. I got a decent start, was able to take over the lead on the first lap and never looked back. Thanks to Billy Fischer for some new set up ideas that have made my truggy the best its been. I am looking forward to the up coming Roar fuel Nats to see how we stack up to the competition.
