This past weekend was the final race in our local “Road to Nationals” points series at Hobbytown SRS in Phoenix, AZ which will host the Roar 1:10 Electric Nationals next week.

I competed in the two very competitive classes which were 2WD 17.5 Buggy and 2WD Modified Buggy. 17.5 Buggy having the most entries consistently through out the series and was by far the closest class in points.

Mod Buggy- I would come into the finals in second place 7-points back from the leader so would need some luck if I was going to move up. Although my car was very good and competitive with me qualifying 2nd to Spencer Rivkin and finishing 3rd to him and Tanner Denny this would not be enough to move me up in points so I would finish second overall for the series.

17.5 Buggy- Going into this final round I was tied for the points lead with 3rd place just two points back so it was any bodies series to win. After qualifying I would end up with the TQ which then gave me a one point lead going into the Main. In the Main I would have a slight bobble early that would drop me to 2nd where I would stay till the end deciding not to push to hard as the leader was not in the top 3 in points so I simply need to finish 2nd to take the overall points victory which I did.

Also Team Driver Nick Sava competed in the 4WD Mod Buggy division and took the overall series win as well as deciding to run his Pro-Line PRO-2 Truck in the Mod SC division at the finals this past Sunday and taking the TQ and Win for the day.
