Jan. 15-18th 2015 Winter Midwest Championships in Jeffersonville, OH
3rd in Pro Buggy
3rd in Pro Truggy
10th Pro Buggy (DNF)
2nd Pro Truggy
In Buggy after 2 bobbles in qual 1 and qual 4 while in TQ position, I would have to settle on 3rd on the grid in a stacked field of drivers.
In Truggy, I would have radio setting issues in qual 1 and 2 so I made 3 and 4 count to put me 3rd on the grid for the Main.
For the Mains I didn’t change anything only fresh tires for both cars. Again M3 Hole Shots, also I would lower the front ride height 2mm in my Truggy to allow for the added traction.
Truggy was up first and I would battle with the 2nd place car back and forth until he would eventually be taken out by a turn marshal allowing me to hold onto a comfortable 2nd place. Although slightly gaining on the leader I was too far back to make up enough ground
Buggy would be a disaster. At the start I would avoid from running over 2nd qual Collin and not take him out, unfortunately the cars behind me didn’t see racing that way, I would get delivered at the start and go a lap down before even getting turn marshaled. I would battle and pass all the cars on the track only to break a right front spindle with 5-minutes to go.
Recap- for the first outing for 2015 I am still pretty pumped my cars were fast and easy to drive. I can’t wait for the next race when we travel south to SIC in Alabama.
