Austin Pannone Podiums at JBRL RD5 on Pro-Line LockDowns and Hole Shots


Had an awesome time at JBRL at the Pro-Line Test Track. The track looked rough early morning due to practice that had taken place the previous day.

Although the track was rough my car was good and I was able to start the day off right by taking the Top Qualifier after first round.


Going in to the second qualifier I was having clutch issues but still managed to set a faster TQ time than first round. Having rebuilt the clutch, I was ready for the Main.

The Main started off rough with many mistakes but after the first pit stop my good friend Bobby Clift told me to calm down and use my head. After the first pit stop I was able to work back from 7th to 3rd. The track became very rough and it came down to the better car with the best setup. On the last lap I was able to catch and pass second place on the inside after he had hit the pipe.

I ran Pro-Line X3 Hole Shots and LockDowns all day.

Thanks to my awesome pit guy Brandon “Spike” Benson for helping all day and Mugen’s Chad Grana for the help in the Main. Also Tim Long, Timmy T., and Travis M. who helped me get the parts necessary to rebuild my clutch for the 20-Minute Main.


As always Thanks to my sponsors Coyote Hobbies Raceway, Pro-Line, and DA Designs.

Thanks to Steve from Rugspin Graphix for the awesome pictures!
