So let’s start off with the biggest race of the season this was the KONE finals and the top three spots were separated by only three points, so the championship was up for grabs. I rebuilt my Hot Bodies D812 and mounted up some new M3 Blockade Tires, checked my Reds Racing R5 team and put a new plug and clutch on it during the week to get ready for this race. I showed up on Saturday to run a few laps before heading to the owners Lester house to get ready for a nice dinner with a bunch of other fellow racers. Sunday morning I got to the track early to see that the rain the night before had left a lot of puddles on the track so the track owner and track crew did a fantastic job getting everything up and running and only cost us about an hour or two of delay.

at Mini Auto Club Saint Quentin, Saint Quentin, France
The weekend was our annual Super Cross race at my home track (RC Madness) and this is pretty much always my last race of the year since I start to get my carpet on road cars ready for the IIC race in Las Vegas.
My car was good but I was just over driving the first round to give me TQ but it was not a time I knew would stick.
For the second round I had a ton of mistakes and went from TQ down to fourth. With that happening I looked at my car, made some changes to give me more traction and make it easier to drive. The first thing I did was to go from Blockade Tires to HoleShot Tires then went from a BullDog body to the Type-R. These were the changes I needed to make my car a lot better. Right off the start I made a inside pass on third and second then TQ made a mistake over the double and I jumped over him to take the lead and stay in that spot for the rest of the race taking down the win and ending my nitro season on a great note!
I would like to thank everyone that has helped me this year and I hope to continue with them for year to come:
Hot Bodies USA
O’Donnell Racing Fuel
After a long day of racing at Wildflower MX RC Track, with over 100 entry’s and changing track conditions I was able to hold off some great drivers to take the win!
I could not have done it without my Hole Shot 2.0 Tires giving me superior grip throughout the 10-min Main.
Thanks Pro-Line for letting me be on the winning team!
Track: LCRC Raceway (Local Track)
Event: Northeast Showdown
Race Setup: 3 rounds of qualifiers, and single A-Mains
Well at the start of the event we found out that there was 20 heats with between 180 and 190 total entries!!!!! So with the time I had, I started getting my Tires washed, batteries charged and cars checked over. Heading out for the first round with my Buggy I went out and had a good run, until two laps in my right rear tire came unglued but I held on and stayed on the 9 lap run pace that the front of the field was running. In Truggy I went out with a comfortable run putting me mid pack in the A. Read the rest of this entry »
On Saturday September 6, 2014 Hobby-Sports.com celebrated our 25th Anniversary and Customer Appreciation Day!
Thank you Pro-Line for your support and donations over the past 25 years and for making this years event a big success. We had a free raffle with over $3,000 in prizes and gave away over 185 T-Shirts.
The pig roast was a big hit feeding over 125 customers!
Awesome day at LCRC in Oakland Mills, PA! 190 entry’s and 20 heats! Weather was perfect for us all day and competition was outstanding!
I managed to put my Serpent 811TE in the show sitting 5th on the starting grid for the Mains, when the tone went off I managed to move up to 3rd with a couple mistakes from drivers in front of me. At about the half-way mark I made a mistake letting 3rd slip out of my hands and finished 4th overall for the weekend!
In 1:8 Pro E-Buggy I had a solid first qualifier putting me 2nd on the grid overall for the weekend. I ran M4 Hole Shot 2.0‘s when the track had some moisture in it but when it dried up during the hotter portion of the day my X4 LockDowns made the car very predictable. The sun settled down for the night before the mains started making me go back to M4 Hole Shot 2.0′s and what a great choice! A couple of horrible mistakes of my own on the first laps sent me from second to dead last, I kept my head down and managed to finish on the podium in 3rd place for the weekend!
None of this would be possible with out the help of my sponsors:
Serpent America, Desota Racing, Pro-Line Racing, B-Fast RC Performance, Fast Guy RC Products, SMC, PT Racing, Upgrade RC and Austintown Hobby!
Looking forward to making my way back to LCRC in the very near future!
