This past weekend kicked off round 1 of the JBRL Nitro Series in Beaumont, CA at Thunder Alley R/C Raceway. There was a huge turnout with a total of 235 entries that came from all over California. TLR had many of their top level drivers like Adam Drake, Mike Truhe, Matt Castellano and Drew Moller along with many other TLR drivers in attendance to contest for the 2012 JBRL Nitro Series championship.
Adam Drake would take the TQ in both Pro Truggy and Pro E-Buggy with not much of a challenge. In the Pro Buggy class Adam Drake would take the TQ in round 1 of qualifying but teammate Mike Truhe would keep his hopes alive for the overall TQ by take round 2. Mike would come up just short of the time Adam ran in round 1 to give Adam Drake the overall TQ in Pro buggy to go along with his other two in pro Trugy and E-Buggy.
Adam Drake would go on to win Pro Truggy and Pro E-Buggy from start to finish. The E-Buggy turned into a bit of a mud race as the storm that was developing overhead decided to let loose. Shortly after they made a decision to cancel the rest of the race and qualifying would determine the results. This would Give Adam Drake the pro Buggy win with teammate Mike Truhe 2nd overall.
