Mason Eppley Runs at Silver Dollar on Pro-Line LockDowns

This Last Saturday I fished racing a race at A-Mains Silver Dollar Raceway in Chico, California. The day started off really well with practice, both cars felt really good and I was ready for qualifying to start. I decided to run my NB48 Nitro Buggy and my EB48.2 E-Buggy. The electric qualifier was first. I didn’t have the best run but I was able to put some really good laps in late to get the TQ for the round. As for nitro, there were two heats with a total of 17 drivers, I had a fairly decent run going but flamed out with thirty-seconds left in the qualifier causing me to not finish the race. After the disappointing run I regrouped and worked on my cars going into round two of the quals.

Starting with electric again, I put in a much better run and secured the overall TQ. In nitro, I had a good run without any flameouts putting me 4th on the grid with a pretty stacked field of drivers. After a lunch break the Mains started, the 10-minute electric Main was up first. It was nice starting on the pole allowing me to get a nice break from the pack and a mistake free run, securing the win in the E-Buggy class!

For Nitro, I had a excellent run going with the top 4 guys but late in the 20-minute race I traction rolled in a corner and nobody saw me for at least 30-seconds causing me to be a whole lap down. I was still in 6th place after that and I did my best to catch up but I ran out of fuel on the second to last corner still taking 6th place.

The Pro-Line X4 LockDowns were absolutely hooked up and both the Tekno cars were dialed!!!

It was a great day of racing and a big congratulations to Mark Schroeder for winning the Pro-Tek engine and letting me run his spare 2060 pipe!!!
