Round two of the North Carolina SCT Challenge Series was held this past weekend at MXRC Raceway in Siler City, NC. It was a successful day with podium finishes in both the 2WD and 4WD Short Course Truck divisions.
In the 4WD SCT division, I claimed TQ and finished the day 2nd overall.
My Pro-Line PRO-2 SC truck got stronger throughout the day and I found myself on the podium once again with a 3rd place finish.
I battled heat issues the entire day and was able to breathe a huge sigh of relief when the truck crossed the finish line for the final time. After the first A-Main the temperature gun showed my Viper motor had reached a staggering 248 degrees, the motor somehow was able to power the truck through the second A-main and helped me capture some hardware. A new motor is on its way and my truck will be ready for round 3 when the series heads to Monroe, North Carolina.
The track changed drastically over the course of the day with heavy rains throughout the week the track was damp and muddy early on before a groove developed. A shower between the double A-Mains, changed the track conditions once again and the rain made the track very slick and many racers began having traction issues.
The Blockade Tires kept both my trucks planted throughout the entire day and helped propel me to strong finishes in both classes.
