Nor-Cal Series Championship Rnd 2

Nor-Cal Series Rnd 2 was held at Delta R/C in Antioch CA. Track had an awesome layout of big air and fast wide lanes made for some great racing! I ended up qualifying 2nd in buggy and TQ in truggy. In buggy I used Red Eclipse and truggy I ran Green King Pins. My Novarossi powered TLR 8ights felt really good going into the mains. First up was truggy A Main and it started off great and led from start to finish with a lap on the field in the 25 min main. In buggy it started off ruff as I tried to go for the pass off the start and ended up in hay bails. I started to to find my lines and move through the pack, but Austin Blair the leader was way out front so I drove smooth and made my way into second as I closed into about 10 seconds of him until he had a flame out problem. I moved past and drove a smooth race and ended up with a 2 lap lead and about 2min to go I crashed over the big double and pulled out my front left turnbuckle from the ball cup and tried to stay out and limp it around the track to see if I could hold him off to the end, but the damage was done and he got by me on the last lap as I finished just 9 seconds behind with three wheels. It was a fun day of racing at Delta R/C with a good turn out and can't wait for the next round!
