Race Report: JBRL Nitro Series RD1

jbrl podium

Round 1 of the JBRL Nitro Series was held at Thunder Alley RC Raceway.  There were right around 220 entries.  I signed up in the intermediate class for truggy and buggy.  Qualifying was decent in round 1 for truggy, I was seventh overall, but in round 2 the track got faster and I switched up to Blockades to save my Holeshots for the main. That was the wrong move as my first round time didn’t hold up and I ended up being “B”q.  In the B main I got a great start and drove away from the field for the 12min race I led wire to wire and bumped up to the A main.  In the A, I started 11th on the grid and held off on the start and drove around the big pile up in the first corner and found myself up to third.  My truggy was hooked up on VTR Holeshots with the BullDog body.  Ended up finishing 2nd after the 15min main was over.
