Adam Drake Wins 2015 Mugen Challenge on Pro-Line X2 Blockades


This past weekend was the Mugen Challenge hosted by LCRC Raceway in PA. The event had nearly 300 entries which was the largest turnout for the Mugen Challenge.

Mugen Seiki’s Team Manager Tim Long and Adam Drake arrive a day early to put on a free driver clinic for the racers. Tim and Adam answered questions and spent time with each of the drivers discussing racing and looking over their vehicles. The LCRC staff did an amazing job controlling practice on the Joey C layout.


In the 1:8 Nitro Truck class Mugen’s Barry Pettit was the top qualifier. In the final Pettit, Bornhorst, Dickerson, and Drake all took turns leading the race. By the half way point of the 45-minute final Adam Drake settled into a comfortable lead followed by Barry Pettit, and young Mugen driver Ethan Mackanick making it a sweep of the podium for Mugen Seiki Racing and Pro-Line.

Drake’s MBX-7T was equipted with Novarossi’s Mito 7 engine, Pro-Line X2 Blockade Tires, Hitec Lynx 4s radio, Hitec 9370 (steering) and 9380 (throttle) servos, Flash Point 30% fuel, Flash Point receiver battery, and Protek accessories.
