Last weekend were the 2nd Round of the German 1:8 Buggy Nationals held at the beautiful dirt track at BIG Hamburg. The track was prepped nicely and the race started with 3 Rounds of practice followed by 2 Rounds of seeding practice.

Pro-Line Fugitive Lite in X2 worked great all day.

After seeding I was able to set the fastest time over 3 laps. On Saturday were 5 Rounds of qualifying. The track developed a nice groove and I switched to Positrons for qualifying with good success. I TQ’d 4 out of the 5 Rounds and got the overall TQ. Read the rest of this entry »

This past weekend G’s RC Raceway in Shippensburg, PA hosted the fifth and final round of the 2017 ROAR Region 2 1/8th scale off-road series. The Pro-Line teammates of Ethan Mackanick, Damien Westfall and Jay Drakeford were able to sweep the podium for the 1:8 Nitro Buggy class. Another weekend of the weather being humid was in the 90’s during the day. The turnout was around 85 entries which was great for the last race of the series.

This past weekend was the most fun race ever!

#rcproseries is amazing and I will definitely be back for more in the future! Qualifying did not go my way. The first 2 rounds I drove too timid and I was a little off pace and I finished 4th overall both rounds. The 3rd qual I was on a TQ run for the first 4 minutes and then I had a couple crashes on the whoop section and that made me loose the TQ. I started the main in the 6 spot and got up to 4th relatively quickly.

I ran Pro-Line M3 Fugitives in all of my races…

Roar-2-podium

I headed to Mushroom Bowl RC this past Saturday for the Roar Region 2 Off Road Series race #4.  ​​​​​​Both HB Racing Buggy’s felt great on the dry and later rain softened layout.  After 3 rounds of qualifying I would start 4th on the grid in E-Buggy and 7th in Nitro Buggy.  The E-Buggy Main was the most fun I’ve had on the track in a long time going back and forth with Tyler Cook of Xray.  Nitro Buggy didn’t fair so well on the wet track and an early flame-out took me out of the race.

Throughout qualifying X3 Fugitive Lites were hooked up on the dry track, however, after the rain I switched to M4 Blockades for the Mains.   Read the rest of this entry »

Tiltyard 8

Had an incredible weekend at the Tiltyard! Raced E-Buggy and 4WD SCT. Had a pretty rough time with qualifiers. E-Buggy would start good, then a screw in the center diff would slightly back out, and lock up the car, and then also strip the spur gear. So, that ended that run. Somehow I managed to miss the first SCT qualifier by not being where I was supposed to be.. Whoops..

If you didn’t attend the Pro-Line Summer Shootout held at Southside Raceway located in Lake City you missed out on probably what will be the greatest event of the year in Florida. With an amazing 340 entries, the place was packed. The time and effort put in from #Brian Lewis, #Lance McDonald and the entire track crew really showed. It’s an outstanding facility that had a brand-new tire wash area, air station to blow off cars and a new staging area. The track itself had many features including the Cabbage Patch and brick sections. It had a couple step ups/ step downs, huge double, triple and the largest off camber around. It was challenging and it made you think about your tire choice which to us is all part of racing.

We tested Pro-Line Hole Shots, Fugitive Lites and ElectroShots during practice on Friday. Read the rest of this entry »

Man it was great to get back to LCRC again for another race; it feels like it has been forever since I was there. This past weekend it was their yearly “The Big One” race with a $1000 nitro buggy purse. I traveled up with teammate Jeremy McGuigan early Friday morning to great a full day of practice in. I ran Nitro Buggy, E-Buggy, and a borrowed E-Truggy from Jeremy (thanks again!).

This past weekend was the official start of the outdoor season with Thunder Alley Raceway (Wilson, NC) hosting their Season Opener Trophy race. After a year hiatus from Thunder Alley, the 2WD SCT class was offered again which meant I got to run my Pro-Line PRO-2 SCT.

The PRO-2 ran primarily indoors throughout 2016 on high-bite clay tracks so a few adjustments were required. After a couple practice laps, I felt comfortable with the truck and my Tire selection (Pro-Line Hole Shots). Qualifying went extremely smooth, as I was able to keep everything clean.

My Pro-Line PRO-2, TQ’ed the 2WD SCT division as the truck as able lapping the field en route to winning both qualifiers. Read the rest of this entry »

After a strong first practice run (45th) in Expert E-Buggy, the rest of the day was rough and carried over into day two. In each E-Buggy qualifier, I dropped further down the board (58th, 74th and 66th), which put me in the H-Main. I don’t want to make any excuses, I pushed too hard and made too many errors to qualify in the upper half of the Expert E-Buggy Division. I also need to get the mental aspect in check because my racing has struggled to start off the New Year. Instead of having fun, relaxing and focusing on racing lines, I am constantly dwelling on results and trying to justify that the team managers who selected me didn’t make a mistake. I believe I finally, snapped out of it on the third day of Motorama and was able to get on the driver stand and have fun again and enjoy guiding my buggy around the track instead of constantly worrying.
