Drew Moller Finishes Strong at Nats Warm-Up Race on Pro-Line Tires

This past weekend was the Sworkz Challenge / ROAR Nats Warm-up held in Chico, California.

The race started out with a full day of practice on Friday which allowed me to do some testing. After making some adjustments to my cars they felt awesome. On Saturday there were three rounds of qualifying.

In Buggy I told myself to drive smooth and consistent as the track was very easy to overdrive. This strategy served me well as I went out and got 2nd overall in the first two qualifiers. In the last round I wanted to try some things so I changed my car and it did not improve the cars handling so I went back to what I originally had.

In Truggy I used the same strategy and got the same result. I changed some stuff on my car and it improved. In the first two rounds I would end up second overall. For the last round I changed my front shock oil and it improved my steering a lot. I would go onto battle for the TQ but was edged out right at the end of the race. Heading into the mains I freshened up my cars and was ready to race.


In the start of the 45-minute Buggy final I got off to a clean start and followed Ty for the first couple of minutes. We would swap positions back and forth for the first 25-minutes. From that point on Ty would stretch his lead running one less pit stop. I would settle in and would go on to finish 2nd.

In the 30-minute Truck Main I got off to a shaky start as I would lose a few positions. By the first pit stop I would catch up to 2nd place and make a pass. Although I would charge hard it would not be enough, I would settle for second. Overall it was awesome weekend of racing and am looking forward to the nationals. I would like to thank all of my sponsors for all of their help and support. HB/HPI Racing, Pro-Line, LRP, Ko Propo, Amain.com, VP Powermaster, Avid, UpGrade R/C, 110% Racing, and Lunsford
