OCRC Raceway Presents The Stock Nationals

This past weekend OCRC Raceway held their Stock Nationals. This is a great event for TLR as it is not a race that the pro drivers attend, it is more driven towards the consumers. With their being no modified class at this race, TLR drivers Matt Castellano and Mike Truhe were on hand all weekend for support to all the racers to give them the best weekend of racing possible. Nick and Robert Black, owners of OC R/C Raceway did an amazing job putting together a track that was specific for the stock racers.


Saturday Pizza Party For all The Racers!!
TLR sponsored all three Rookie classes with the winners of each class receiving a TLR or Losi car kit. The big TLR prize of the weekend went to the Sportsman buggy winner where they would receive a TLR team sponsorship for one year.

Rookie Stock Truck
In the Rookie Stock Truck class Mike Fetyko was the big winner as he would take home the number 1 plate with his TLR22T truck along with a brand new TLR22T kit.

Rookie Stock Short Course
The Rookie Stock Short Course class is the hardest class to win as the racing is always close and exciting. The top three in this class put on a great show with some intense battles with Jason Dale coming out on top taking the win and receiving his new Losi XXX-SCT roller!

Rookie Stock Buggy
Michael Birmingham put in a dominate performance in the A-main of Rookie Stock Buggy leading every lap to take the win. Michael won the number one plate and a TLR22 buggy kit!

Sportsman Stock Buggy
Casey Becica really showed he was the man to beat in the Sportsman Stock Buggy class and that he was determined to win the TLR sponsorship by TQing the first two rounds of qualifying. Casey ended up with the overall TQ. In the sportsman classes the A-mains were ran a bit different than the Rookie class. They would have triple A-main to deal with, which makes things much more difficult as you need to be consistent. Casey showed his consistence in the first two mains taking both wins giving him the overall and the one year TLR sponsorship!!
