My wife and I loaded up our trailer this past weekend and traveled six and a half hours south to Gainesville, GA to attend our last big race of the summer, The Wicked Weekend. This year’s Wicked Weekend race drew a total of 624 entries, making it the largest Wicked Weekend to date. I was very happy with the end results as I finished 8th overall in 4wd SCT and 21st out of 120 in Sportsman E-Buggy.
Due to the record number of entries they had to alter the qualifying format from three 5-minute qualifiers to two 7-minute qualifiers, however, seeding was still determined by qualifying points as opposed to rocket round.
I equipped my truck with M3 Pro-Line Hole Shots and was able to secure a strong qualifier. Read the rest of this entry »
I was able to TQ and take second on Pro-Line Blockades at The Wicked Weekend.
Thanks Pro-Line for the awesome Tires.
The 7th round of Czech Open series took place last weekend on beautiful track in Kolin. Home club did perfect job and prepared whole area perfectly for which I owe them my thanks!
On Friday we had free practice, my FX powered XB8’16 was working good since the first lap and we only made few small changes on the setup to get more steering on this quite technical track. Read the rest of this entry »
For our 8th Wedding Anniversary, my wife and I planned a trip to Columbus, Ohio to attend the third round of Scotty Ernst’s Off-Road Showdown. It is a 15-hour round trip from our house to Sparks Park RC Raceway so I decided to enter four classes to get as much track time as possible. In addition my wife raced in the Novice division.
I had previously attended round 2 at Beach RC and was highly impressed with the way Scotty Ernst ran the race program so we decided it was a great way to spend our anniversary.
Friday was a full day of practice; it was also my first time on the track with my brand new HB D413. I spent the majority of the time getting familiar with the Buggy and working out any kinks associated with a new build. We were told treaded, clay compound tires were best for the surface at Sparks Park but with track maintenance and frequent watering the best tires ended up being Pro-Line Primes. I had a full set of Primes for all my vehicles except my 4wd Buggy so I had to make due with what I had in that class.
My Pro-Line PRO-2 SCT felt great in the modified 2wd SCT division.

Last weekend the 1st Round of the German Nationals took place at MSC Sand. Host of the 1:8 European Championships in 2014. Unfortunately the weather on Friday was bad with rain, but turned into sunshine for Saturday and Sunday. The track grooved up nicely and was in perfect conditions. After 5 Rounds of qualifying it was 2 SRX8 in the semi final and Jörn could take the TQ spot.
Both semi-finals were won by Serpent drivers, semi A by Jörn and semi B by Daniel Reckwardt. Jörn could take the pole position for the 40-minutes main final, Daniel started from position 7. At the start Jörn had a tumble and fell back to the last position, but thanks to a great performance and amazing fuel mileage he could take the lead again just before the end and take the victory.
Pro-Line Suburbs Tires were on point all weekend

What a great day of racing at the 2016 U4RC Summer Nationals at Cherry Valley RC Raceway! The sun was out and the best in the country were all there.
The Pro-Line Yeti Jeep Wrangler fitted with Pro-Line Racing BF Goodrich KR2 was off the hook!
The racing was fast, rough and exciting. Cherry Valley defenatly put these tires though the test! The 1.9″ and 2.2″ Trophy RC Fabworks chassis both had the Pro-Line Racing Flat Irons and they were sticking all day! They really did there job! The 1.9 Trophy was Back and forth in the Mains. Eventually landing on the podium in the third spot. With the sun down the 2.2″ Flat Irons on the Beast did an awesome job holding me down. Unfortunately they could help my vision! LOL… I eventually finished in the middle of the pack. At the end day,
I was able to race against the best there is in U4RC and Pro-Line Racing Bodies, Shocks and Tires kept me in the game!!

Special Thanks to James Goad Photography for the awesome shots!
Had a great time at the U4RC Nationals at Cherry Valley RC Raceway in Southern California. So many great drivers showed up to race was a awesome day. The day started out with a little bit of practice had to get the track down and get my lines figure it out through the rocks in 2.2″ indy. The Rock section at Cherry Valley is definitely one that separates the men from the boys when it comes to U4RC.
First rounds of heat started with 1.9″ Trail in which I was able to take home a second had a great battle with Adam Baker the whole Heat. My second heat was 2.2″ indy didn’t get too great of a start but managed to come back from the back and win that heat.
Ran Flat Iron XL‘s in 1.9 Trail and Swamper XLs in 2.2″ Indy
