LCRC Raceway in Oakland Mills, PA held the 7th Annual Halloween race this past weekend to close out the season for 2015. With 188 entries, the race brings out the fastest drivers from the North East.
Ethan qualified in the Nitro Buggy class from the number six starting position. At the sound of the tone he would immediately take on a multi-lap battle with Chad Phillips from Absolute Hobbyz for the number four position until getting caught up with some of the lapped cars. This would hold back the charge from the young Mugen driver and he would finish out the 25-minute A-Main feature in the fifth place position.
Ethan also entered his MBX-7T into the Nitro Truggy class and would just miss out on the TQ position with a battle Duane Karlovsky in the two rounds of qualify by a couple of hundredths of a second. This would set the stage for a battle in the Main event. At the sound of the tone, Karlovsky would not make it from his starter box and the number three truck of Ron Gereshenski would sneak by Ethan on the first lap. Ethan maintained the pressure on Gereshenski and would take over the lead at about the one minute mark in the feature. He continued to lead and pull away from the rest of the field at the two and half minute mark in the race. Unfortunately, unexpected rain showers would drench the track and the race had to be called. The truck race finishing positions were then determined by qualifying positions which would put Ethan second on the podium.
