Round 1
(4×4 SCT) My truck felt very well through practice earlier on in the day, as I went over it and scouted the track a little longer I felt good about going out for my first Qual. As it started, I found a few places on the track that I could just fly through that I didn’t find in practice making my times drop even farther! After winning my race I marshaled the next race and sat down to watch the rest of heats of 4×4 SCT and finding out that nobody beat my time and I ended up setting TQ.

(1:8 E-Buggy) Same as my 4×4 SCT my Buggy felt very good throughout practice. I went out and ran an awesome run and by the end of the round I found that my time early on the heat was faster by a whole lap but stopped counting for a few laps. I asked the owner and he said I was hitting a jump conner so fast that I was jumping over the loop! Even though that happened my time was good enough to put me in 2nd place overall!

Round 2
(4×4 SCT) My goal for this round with my truck was to have a smooth run without wrecking. As the race started I noticed I was running a new TQ run as well as 3 other people so I started pushing harder! By the end I found myself dropping to 2nd place.

(1:8 E-Buggy) Same as my SCT again my goal was to run smooth and hopefully I won’t have to push and risk my 2nd place spot. Just like I wanted to, I ran smooth and held 2nd place for the Main!

The Mains:
(4×4 SCT) right as the race started me and 1st place pulled away from the rest of the pack and started to work up a good battle. As we went on he had a little more speed in certain sections than me so I held my position for the rest of the race in 2nd.

(1:8 E-Buggy) starting second with some fresh tires I felt confident starting the main as me and 1st and 3rd places flew away from the pack and were running very close. About 3-minutes into the race I clipped the pipe throwing me back to 3rd and the next lap it happened again to put me into 4th. So I slowed down to take a breath and calm down and I lost 2 more spots putting me in 6th. By the time I started picking up the pace again I ran out of time crossing the line right behind 5th place.
