Round 4 of the JBRL would take place at OCRC in Huntington Beach, CA. This would be my fist time racing at OCRC, The track had a good layout and I knew it was going to be a fun weekend.
I spent all day friday trying to dial in my Cars, & trying many different tire choices. I ended up using MC Pro-Line IONs on the Pro-Line PRO-2 SC. My Team Associated B5M was working good all day with minor changes on the car for the amount of traction that the track was putting off.
As saturday came Mod 2wd buggy was up first for me. I started off the race good, but could not put the end of the race together, so I ended up taking 5th in the results. As PRO-2 SC came up there was some very stiff competition in this class, I had a run with many crashes and ended up qualifying 10th in the A-main. 2nd round of qualifying came around Mod Buggy went the same with to many crashes and SC I would better my time to 8th place qualifier in the A-main.
Mod buggy B main was up First, I started off the race with a good start and was making some good passes on my competition. A couple minutes into the race I would start hitting pipes and ended with a 8th place finish. Pro 2 SC A main was up next I started off 8th place but, as the race went on I would be making my way up to the front of the pack. I stayed in second place for about the whole rest of the race and held a clean mistake free race putting my Pro-Line PRO-2 SC in second place of the podium behind Team Associated’s Kevin Motter.
