This past weekend CRC Raceway hosted the “Rumble In Rome” 12 annual event. The race included some factory drivers across the region including Billy Fischer, Jamie Grayek, Jay Bless, Jason Schreffler, Alex Miller Tom Firsching and more. With over 200 entries it was bound to be a great weekend.
“I was very happy with my Pro-Line M3 Hole Shots all weekend. I ran them because they provided great rear grip out of the corners and also made the car easy to drive.”
In Pro Nitro Buggy Qualifying went well and I was able to run a strong pace from the start. In Q1 I took a TQ, I didn’t finish Q2 due to a mechanical issue and Q3 I was 2nd. I would start 2nd overall. In the final Jamie Grayek would start on pole. The Main was underway and I got off to a great start and took the lead early on. Me and Jamie swapped positions throughout the race with Mark Sousa moving up to 3rd and Billy Fischer to 4th in the Tekno. After the last fuel stop Jamie made a couple of mistakes and I was able to hold on for the win after an eventful main event. Jamie Grayek was 2nd, Mark Sousa 3rd, Billy Fischer 4th and Tom Firsching 5th.

In Pro Nitro Truck, qualifying went great also. I went 3, TQ and 2 in the 3 rounds and would start 2nd overall behind Billy Fischer. In the final I got off to a great start and was able to get by Billy after he made a mistake. On Lap 2 I would also make a mistake and have to charge through the pack. I found myself in a three way battle with Jamie Grayek who was out front, Billy in 2nd and I was 3rd. We swapped the positions a few times but coming in for my last pit stop I had a glow plug go out on me. Over a lap went by and I was down to 4th. With 5-minutes left I charged and put my head down. I was able to get by 2nd on the last lap and finish there behind winner Jamie Grayek. Billy Fischer also had an issue with a DNF.
I ran Pro-Line M3 Hole Shots on my vehicle all weekend and worked great from morning till night and provided amazing traction throughout the track.
Thank you very much and good luck to all of the Pro-Line drivers attending the ROAR Nationals this upcoming weekend.
