We just ran across this race report and wanted to share the good news. Pro-Line team driver Kraig Krueger won the 2WD Modified Class at the Udder Maddness Classic race Sept 17th!
The Udder Madness Classic is the longest-running off-road race in Minnesota. This year the top racers in the region gathered at the race’s annual Starbuck location for the event.
Similar to previous years, the 2WD Modified class proved to be the most competitive and largest of the classes. In round 1 of qualifying, Eric Swanson put in a solid run and set the early pace for the rocket round qualifying format. His time held until round 3 when his teammate Kraig Krueger edged him out for the top qualifying position that held through the fourth round of qualifying.
A-Main number one saw an early challenge for the lead from Swanson. Krueger and Swanson tangled, and allowed Nelson to secure the lead. Nelson held the lead until the late stages of the race when a mistake allowed a late-charging Krueger to secure the victory for the first round of the mains.
Round two of the mains started similar to round one with a challenge from Swanson. Swanson and Krueger battled through the first four minutes of the race until a mistake from the challenger allowed Krueger to extend his lead and secure a round 2 victory.
Kraig Krueger secured the overall victory by winning A Mains numbers one and two with his Pro-Line outfitted RC10B4.1. Kraig used Holeshots M3 rears and Scrub MC Front tires and said, “The car was hooked up with that combo”.
Great work Kraig!
