Monday was the Final day of Practice at the 2016 IFMAR World Championships in Las Vegas and this day would be used for seeding the drivers into Qualifying which will happen over the next 3 days. It was also Opening Ceremonies and Pro-Line Team Picture Day! As you can see from the above picture, I believe the Pro-Line Team to be the largest team at the event full of the best drivers from all around the World! Read the rest of this entry »

The World Championships are finally HERE after a 2 year build-up! Here in the USA, in Las Vegas, only a few hour drive from Pro-Line Headquarters in Southern California where all of our Tires, Wheels and Bodies are made. This is exciting because the race has been held all over the World since the last time the race was held in the States 8 years ago: from Thailand, to Argentina, and then finally to Italy where Ty Tessmann won his 1st World Championship and gave Pro-Line our 12th Title.

SuperCup Series – Round 2
Beachline Raceway – Cocoa, FL
We arrived around 6:00 Friday night to get in a couple hours of practice. It’s a good thing we did because we ended up having to fix all our cars. I was taking some laps with my 13.5 Buggy when all of a sudden it just stopped. My speed control died. Thank you, #Brett Hold for giving me one so I could race the next day. David was next to head back to the pits with his broken 13.5 Buggy. It was a mad house on the drivers stand with 18 to 19 drivers at a time on a small sized track. When he got done he walked off with his front diff housing cracked in two. While David worked on our buggies I tried out my 2WD SCT.

This weekend at the regional race in Pereira, Colombia I took the TQ and the 1st place on the A-Main final. I took 1st in every single run this weekend and that also because my Pro-Line Blockade M4 were awesome.
Had an awesome time at the 2016 Southern Nationals in West Monroe, LA! With just over 400 entries I decided to run all 3 pro classes, Pro Buggy, Pro Truggy and Pro E-Buggy! Practice went well making minor adjustments and learning the fairly tricky layout. Qualifying had its ups and downs, but after three rounds I was able to make all three Pro A-Mains!
In the 1:10 series I would race expert 2WD Stock Buggy as there wasn’t a mod class.
This series was best 4 out of 5. I would end up missing the first round of the series and that would take my one drop away. In the second round my first race I would have a good runs in qualifying putting me second overall for the Main. In the Main I would have a great battle with first going back and forth but at the end I made one to many mistakes and ended up second.
Pro-Line won every single round of the Austrian Nationals with 15 out of 16 possible podium spots.
In this late summer weekend, drivers from coast to coast travelled to West Monroe Louisiana to compete at the Southern Indoor Nationals. With 411 entries, there was stiff completion all across the board. Many drivers from the Pro-Line Racing Team contended, and at the end of the weekend, we truly came out on top.
Top Pro Joe Bornhorst, reigning world champion Ty Tessmann, as well as a handful of regional hot shots came out to represent. Nitro Buggy and Truggy, as well as Electric Buggy were the classes of choice. This track included many unique features. With large jumps, and a bumpy dustier surface, the driving experience was trickier than the common race. Most of the team drivers chose the M4 Hole Shot as their go-to tire. With the super soft rubber, and smaller pin, it allowed them to have lots of grip and turn the fast laps they needed to qualify in the top spots. Read the rest of this entry »
