Colton Kiefer at Serpent Challenge and Winter Nationals on Pro-Line Electrons and IONs


I went to the Serpent challenge at Leisure Hours Raceway in January. This is a track that I visit a couple of times a year. The race had 230 entries for a one day race. Way too many entries. They cut it down to 2 quals and single A-Mains. I raced 2WD Mod Buggy, 4WD Mod Buggy, and E-Buggy. I still struggle with 2WD just because of my background in Nitro. I ran MC Electrons on 1:10 and MC ION on E-Buggy.

I finished in the C-Main in 2WD, 3rd in the B-Main of 4WD and 4th in the A-Main with E-Buggy.

The next race was the Indoor Winter Nationals. It was being held at Smac Track in St. Louis, MO. This is my home track for winter racing. I would be racing 2WD Stock Buggy, 2WD Mod Buggy, and 4WD Mod Buggy. I decided to race Stock Buggy just for track time, but it was a real enjoyment to run. The competition was awesome and some of the closest racing ever. This race is the first race that has a no Tire sauce rule in place. For being local we have been testing this for some time with mixed results. I mounted up new M4 Electrons for all my vehicles and had them broken in before the event started. My cars were really good until the track dried out. This made racing an equal playing field for everyone.

I was able to TQ Stock and finish 2nd due to traffic, 3 in the D-Main in 2WD Mod and I finished 2nd in the B-Main in 4WD Mod.

My cars, Pro-Line Tires, and electronics were awesome.

Next race for me is the 2015 Chi Town Shootout March 6-8.
