Steve Graham with a Podium Finish at The NorthEast Showdown on Pro-Line Hole Shots

At the NorthEast Showdown at LCRC on 9/27/14 and had a great time, close to 200 entries and lots of competition. I ran only nitro this weekend to see if it would help me with throttle control and I think it definitely made a difference.


I finished 3rd in Nitro Truggy A and after a rough day chasing set up and the ever changing track conditions.

I only made the Nitro Buggy C-Main and unfortunately the LCRC loop started having issues and didn’t count my laps, my pit guy said he was confident I was at least 4th if not higher but didn’t care to argue it as it was only the C-main.

In Truggy I qualified top of B-Main, missing the A by just a second but had a great run and lead the entire 15-minutes of the B to bump to the A which was actually a blessing because it gave me good practice for the A and gave me a good idea what Tires to run as the lower temps changed the traction dramatically from qualifiers.

After a late night snack and coffee run, I lined up for the Truggy A with my M3 Pro-Line Hole Shots and Pro-Line Trifecta Wing and honestly was just happy to be in it considering the competition but I settled in and started working my way thru the group. Unfortunately once again the loop had issues and I went from 4th to 8th on the computer 10-minutes in but decided to just keep cool and keep going and go as fast as I could and see where the dust settled at the end. I was still 8th according to the computer at finish and I was about to leave but was told LCRC was reviewing the Truggy Main and as it turns out I took 3rd, unfortunately the guy who thought he got third took my trophy so I got a replacement trophy and since they couldn’t go back and correct it in the computer, I only have the manually corrected finishing results but better than nothing!

Thanks to my buddy Justin for pitting and marshaling for me all day too, certainly freed me up to focus on my set-ups.
