I recently attended the 2017 Silver State at RC Tracks Las Vegas, and like usual the layout was pretty awesome and flowing. Even though they kept some of the sections from the worlds track it was still a lot different and really enjoyable to race on.
The International Bütschwil GP race was in Switzerland. BC Hornets shows a good event with over 100 drivers from Swiss, Germany, Austria, Italy, Portugal and more. The track was in a halle of a Plastic grid with dirt surface.
Awesome weekend for Team Associated at the international Bütschwil GP. Factory Driver Patrick Hofer show hes RC8B3 on the first day with fastest in timed practice and TQs Q1 and Q2 , Car works awesome in the semi final and in the Main Final on Sunday ! Patrick Can start from 1st. Place in the Main and can bring home the Win with hes factory team #RC8B3.
2017 Dirt Nitro Challenge was just that, a challenge. The layout was the best that it has been in years, I felt that the track was more what I remember the DNC being in the past. Coming to this race with entirely new platforms of cars, I knew would be difficult but testing before the race gave me the confidence that I would be able to compete and do well.
Over the last 4 months I have attended the Thornhill winter series.
It was set up as a best 5 out of 7 rounds with 2 drops.
I only ran Pro Nitro Buggy in the series as that is my favorite class in 1:8. There were 42 different drivers in that class with lots of top guys from all around Texas.
At the end of every outdoor season, at the final 1:8 race of the year at the finale round of the Northwest Championship Tour in Pasco, Washington, we all feverishly prepare our cars for one final push on the dirt for the season. For most of the region, this will be the last time any driver touches a radio for the remainder of the calendar year. The race ends, we receive our series awards, take pictures, thank our sponsors for their support, and we go home and we wait. Some of us continue to travel around the Pacific Northwest or farther to race our 1:10 vehicles, but the attitude isn’t the same- we are all waiting for 1:8 season to start, as the carpet merely holds us over. For five months some of us rip around doing 12-14 second laps on a tight high grip track, while others simply stare at their vehicles. Eventually, the middle of February comes around, and we prepare our 1:8 vehicles again. Dirt racing has returned, and its name is Cabin Fever.
Last weekend was the Southern Indoor Championship in Alabama. The crew at RaceTime Entertainment put on an amazing event with nearly 500 entries. The layout was fast, technical, and had big air! Adam Drake was the overall top qualifier in the electric buggy class. Three, ten minute main events would determine the overall electric buggy champion. Drake took the victory in A1 and A3 to become the overall champion!
Thunder Alley Raceway hosted the Toys for Tots race over the weekend. The event had over 110 entries.
Pro-Line’s Adam Drake would sweep the Nitro Buggy and Nitro Truck classes. Drake took a commanding victory in the 30-minute Nitro Buggy final by nearly a lap. Cody King settled for second and Joseph Quagraine finished third.

The Fugitives held up great on the extremely abrasive track, I dominated the qualifiers, getting the TQ spot. The Main had a bad tangle at the start and fought my way back up to 2nd place, running out of time.
Overall buggy was great.
