Drew Moller TQ’s and Wins at 2015 Sidewinder Nitro Explosion on Pro-Line Hole Shots


This past weekend was the 2015 Sidewinder Nitro Explosion. The race consisted of three qualifiers and a final Main. The race was held in Chula Vista, California at Heritage R/C Park. This is one of my favorite tracks to race at and was very excited to compete. Friday was practice day. The weather was beautiful and my cars were awesome. I didn’t need to adjust anything on my car, my base setup was dialed. The weather forecast said there would be a chance of rain on Sunday which would play a huge factor with car setup. On qualifying day I struggled with car setup.

The Track was inconsistent and was gradually becoming rougher. I tuned my cars to the conditions and did the best that I could. In Nitro Buggy I had two top three runs but wasn’t satisfied. In the last round of qualifying I drove the car to its limit and got the TQ for the round and the overall. I was very excited and was very confident coming into the Mains. In Electric Buggy I started off slow in qualifying but continued to get faster throughout the day. I made some mistakes in my runs and I would have to settle for third overall. Main day had finally arrived. The morning greeted us with hard downpour, something I did not want to happen. The track was completely flooded and blown out. I changed my car setup to handle the bumps better and be more consistent.


In Electric Buggy they ran triple A-Mains. The track threw me into a tail spin. I drove my heart out and would get the overall win. I was glad I overcame the challenging conditions and walked away with the win.

In Nitro Buggy my car felt pretty good and couldn’t wait for the race to start. In the start of the race I got off to a clean start and led the pack around for the first few minutes. Cody King got an awesome start and followed my every move. His car was on point and I could not hold him off. He made a clean pass and held a steady gap. My car was consistent but didn’t have the speed to win. I ran a flawless race and would finish in 2nd.


I’m happy with my result and look forward to the upcoming races. I would like to thank my Family, the entire HB team, and Pro-Line Team for all of their hard work. I would also like to thank all of my sponsors, HB/HPI Racing, Pro-Line, LRP, Amain.com, VP Racing fuels, Avid, Up Grade R/C, Lunsford, and 110% racing.
