Blais Racing, JBRL Round 6 Race Report!
Chris Blais takes the 1/8 E-Buggy TQ and Win!
|JBRL Round 6Rainman’s Hobbies
By Chris Blais:
JBRL Round 6 would take place in the fairly new Rainman’s Hobbies Indoor Raceway. I have to say they were pretty dialed in for the race with 2 huge swamp coolers, food vendor, super smooth track, and a great crew. My wife Patty and I got there Friday morning with our trailer to camp out for the weekend. I put about 6 batteries through each of my cars for practice and got my setups down.
In Pro 4 I would have a rough 1st qualifier with 2 crashes that set me back of the pack in the A-Main. In the 2nd qualifier I would pull it together and move up a few positions into 5th place for the A-Main. The top 8 drivers would only be about 10 seconds apart separating the entire field. The track started to really blue groove in the 2nd qualifiers and my Pro-Line Ion tires were really hooking up. In the main I put myself in 4th position through the first corner and stayed there the rest of the race. I was catching my brother in 3rd for a bit then he put the hammer down and started pulling away. I would finish up 4th place in the Pro 4 main event.
In 4×4 Modified Buggy I would have a great day qualifying 4th in the 2nd heat and just having some really good runs. My Team Associated B44.2 was railing with my Venon/ Tekin Power and Pro-Line Ion MC tires. In the main event my car was hooked up and I was catching the leaders. I made the pass for the lead and had it for a bit. Then Jimmy Barnett comes up and drills me after the first turn double. It sounded like our cars were broken but everything was still alright. I was a little rattled after that and made a couple of small mistakes setting me back into 4th again. Then with a minute left Jimmy’s car breaks and I’m back in 3rd. I start gaining on Kevin Kasten and Jake Mayo but just ran out of time. Kevin would take the win, Jake in 2nd, and I would finish in 3rd just 2 seconds behind.
The 2013 Short Course Nationals were held at RC Madness in Enfield Connecticut the weekend of August 24th and 25th. Team Pro-Line’s own Gerardo Gonzalez was in attendance to help out with team support as well as answer any questions from our end users. This years turnout saw 245 entries battle it out in 2wd and 4wd Short Course truck classes as well as Short Course Buggy classes. In previous years we saw the final days of competition get rained out, but this year the weather was perfect with plenty of sunshine all weekend long that helped the track developed and high bite groove with some light dust on the outside.
Team Pro-Line was able to put two of it’s recently released PRO-2 SC trucks in the Open A-main driven by Mark Smyka and Gerardo Gonzalez as well as take the TQ and 1st place in the Open Short Course Buggy class also driven by Gerardo Gonzalez with a converted PRO-2 SC kit.
The tire of choice for 2wd Short Course was the #1180-02 Holeshot SC in M3 compound. In the 4wd Open class Team Pro-Line driver Anthony Mazarro not only TQ’d but also dominated the A main by winning by a large margin over the rest of the field on #1185-02 M3 Tazer SC tires. RC Driver magazine’s own Greg Vogel was also driving a Pro-Line PRO-2 SC truck in the Open 2wd class.
Thanks to Chris Marcy, Mark Smyka and all the crew at RC Madness for another great Short Course Nationals, see you next year.
