The 2014 Novarossi Nitro Challenge took place at MRRC Raceway this past weekend in New York City, NY.  TLR, Novarossi, Pro-Line driver Adam Drake was on hand to help with set-ups and engine tuning. Saturday kicked off with four rounds of qualifying. Qual points were used to set the starting grid for the 30-minute Truck final and the 45-minute Buggy final.  Drake was on fire during qualifying and took the TQ honors in Truck and Buggy by setting the fastest time in 3 out of the 4 rounds.

In the 30-minute Truck final Drake was followed closely by his teammate Anthony Mazzara. Drake and Mazzara pulled away from the rest of the field and finished first and second.

TLR 8ight T 3.0, Nova Rossi engines and Pro-Line M3 Hole Shots finish 1st and 2nd!

By the time the 45-minute Buggy final was up the track was getting extremely bumpy. Drake again got off to a great start and pulled away from Reno Savoya and Anthony Mazzara.

Drake ended up winning by a little over 29-seconds. Second went to Savoya, and third was Mazzara.

TLR 8ight 3.0, Nova Rossi Keep Off 4 engine, and Pro-Line Hole Shot 2.0 finish 1st and 3rd!
