P-L Driver Jared Wiggins at Psycho Nitro Blast on Pro-Line Hole Shots

Untitled-1

This past weekend we made the 11 hour trip down to White Pine, Tn for the 10th annual Psycho Nitro Blast! This event being like no other with 24 hours of practice and racing going nonstop from 5am on Friday. With the 916 entries I decided to race all three Pro Classes: Nitro Buggy, Nitro Truggy and E-Buggy. Friday practice went well with all three Tekno cars feeling right on pace! Qualifying had its ups and downs, in Pro Buggy I got an A-Main run in Q1 and was a bit off pace in Q2 and 3 putting me 2nd in the B-Main!

In Pro Truggy I had a rough first 2 rounds with an A-Main run in Q3 putting me in the B-Main. In E-Buggy it would be my first race with Team Orion using the new RX8 with a 2100kv motor and 6500 Carbon Pro battery. The new electronics combined with my current program were on point allowing me to clear the 60ft center triple ever lap! Q1 I would get a top 20 run. Q2 I would have a stellar run losing the heat to Phend on the last lap by .2 getting a 6th for the round. Q3 would go well with a 9 putting me into the A-Main!

On to Mains. In the B-Main of Truggy I had a rough start and a couple too many mistakes to capitalize on a bump spot. E-Buggy A-Main was an awesome race with many of the worlds best in contention! After the first lap I had an awesome start and came out 3rd, only to get hit and go back to 18th hahaha. After that I was able to work back up to a top 5 until a mistake with 2-minutes to go delegating me to 8th. In the Pro Buggy B-Main I had an awesome race with Tyler Jones and Tyler Vik! I was able to lead till around the first pit and then follow Tyler until I had a 14-second crash in the concrete section putting me within a second of losing 2nd. After battling with Vik for awhile I made a bobble with two laps to go and let Chandler and Tyler past, unfortunately I only got the gap down to 3-seconds missing the bump. As a whole the weekend went really well!

As many had seen this event is called Psycho for a reason and even with the massive jumps I had zero failures all weekend! Thanks to all my Sponsors and their representatives for the amazing support this weekend! And thanks to my awesome parents for driving me 12 hours each way!
