Round 3 of the outdoor season for ROAR Region 2 moved further north in Pennsylvania to Oakland Mills at the LCRC Racing Facility.  The weather for the weekend started out with seventy to eighty degree temperatures with plenty of sunshine that would last most of the day on Saturday. The event brought in roughly 115 entries including in the following classes: Young Guns, 1:8 Electric Buggy and Truggy, 4×4 SCT, and 1:8 Nitro Buggy and Truggy classes. The Mackanick family of Kendall, Ethan, Cody and their father Jason were all well qualified for the A-Main features of the day on Pro-Line Tires.

This would be the first weekend racing for seven year old Kendall stepping into the Young Guns class. Kendall would qualify fourth on the grid and finished 5th. She improved on her driving throughout the day and managed to conquer the track completely on her own through all qualifiers and her feature event. Kendall’s equipment was an RC8.2e with a Pro-Line BullDog body and Blockade tires in M3 compound.

Due to rain only half of the feature rounds were able to be completed. Kendall would be the only one of us who was able to run their respective main event.  Here are some photos of Kendall in action.

11 year old, Ethan, would put on his usual display of driving skills in the 1:8 Electric Buggy class qualifiers by starting out rough in Q1 and by Q3 putting in a flawless run to seat him in the 7th place grid position for the A-Main feature. Ethan is running a Mugen MBX 6, Pro-Line BullDog body, and Blockade M3 tires. Here are the shots of Ethan in action.

18 year old, Cody, now getting ready to head off to college at Penn State in about a month, has handed over his regular racing vehicle to Kendall. This weekend, Cody would wheel a Mugen MBX7, 1:8th Nitro Buggy provided by Todd Myers from the LCRC facility. This was Cody’s first weekend wheeling a Nitro Buggy and in similar fashion to his younger brother, he would have the car and his driving dialed in by the 3rd qualifier. Cody would set his car into the A-Main feature starting from the 8th place position on the grid with M3 Blockades.

Finally, getting a break from my race director responsibilities for the event, I would run my Tekno SCT 410, with the Pro-Line Toyota Tundra body and M3 Sniper Tires in the 4×4 SCT class. I would qualify the truck in the 5th place starting position where the top 6 of 12 drivers were all capable of taking the win. Rain would not let this battle to occur and ended the event just prior to the starting of the 4×4 SCT mains. Here are some photos of the Tekno in action.

Thanks again to Pro-Line in supporting the ROAR Regional Directors and the events which we attend.

7/18 – 7/19/2014
1:10 Electric Lonestar Classic @ Indy RC World – Garland, TX

IMAG1218_1_1

Great racing this weekend resulting in TQ/1st overall in 2WD SC using Square Fuzzies, and 2nd overall in 4WD SC using Blockades.

Pro-Line had me hooked up all weekend long!!! My 2WD SC was insanely on rails.

I TQ’d all 3 rounds by 1-2 full laps. In A-1/A-2 I lapped the field 3 times!!!

2WD times would have been good enough for roughly 6th in the 4WD class.

4WD class I was beat by fellow P-L driver Josh Glancy. He made A-Main at the ROAR 1/8 Fuel Nationals so I knew going in I was racing for 2nd place, haha!

Thanks again for the support/opportunity!!

Well this past weekend was the first round of the Mugen Grand prix Series at Heritage R/C Park in Chula Vista CA.

The day started off good with a 2nd overall qualifying in intermediate buggy.

For the main I had a rough start. On the first lap, I made a huge mistake which dropped me back to 9th place. I then knew I had to put my head down and drive smooth. I was able to stay very consistent and take the lead with 8 laps to go which then resulted in the win!

I choose to run X3 HoleShots in the 25-min A-Main since the track dried out after 15-min.

The X3 compound was great when the track was wet and even better when it was dry. The tires still have a lot of tread on them after the long main.

Series Round #3 at the new track in Colorado (Pueblo) M&M RC Speedway. Great people and welcoming owners build a very nice track.

For qualifying I used Blockade M4 in Buggy and Blockade M3 in Truggy. There was bunch of sugar on the track as the owner was trying to keep the track together, but after a big storm on Saturday night, all the sticky, sugary spots were washed off by the rain.

After qualifying 2nd in Truggy and 3rd in Buggy on Saturday, I switched to M3 Blockades in the Buggy and managed to pull off the Win in both classes with M3 compound Blockade Tires. They sure work everywhere!

Thank you all for the support and Big thanks to my Pit guy Roman (Guy on the Left in the picture) for amazing pit stops. He also got the TQ and podium with Blockade X2 compound in E-Buggy.

There were 130+ entries for the event. The track was an ‘old school’ dirt track.

I ran the same set of M4 Blockades on my TLR 8IGHT 3.0 all day and TQ’d all three qualifiers and won the 30-minute A-Main. Read the rest of this entry »

We’ll after a long and very terrible weekend of racing (probably the worst I ever had), at RD3 of the 2014 Midwest Nitro Series held at Thunder Road Hobbies.

It started with the insane track with constant changing in the tune, tires, and setup I finally decided on the Pro-Line LockDowns which are some amazing tires.

I got bumped up to run Pro and in the Friday night race I got a 7th in the A-Main pre-race then in the actual race I got a very unwanted 3rd place in the C-Main, everything was perfect except the driver.

Thank you for being behind me through the thick and thin. Pro-Line is an Amazing sponsor. My dad and I treated it as a test day after the 3rd qual. Hopefully will have some better results soon.

Thanks,

Jackson Jeffery
