Had an awesome time at the 2016 Southern Nationals in West Monroe, LA! With just over 400 entries I decided to run all 3 pro classes, Pro Buggy, Pro Truggy and Pro E-Buggy! Practice went well making minor adjustments and learning the fairly tricky layout. Qualifying had its ups and downs, but after three rounds I was able to make all three Pro A-Mains!
Starting 6th in E-Buggy, 12th in Buggy and 14th in Truggy. In E-Buggy there was triple 10 minute mains which after breaking in the first two I had to settle for a lower finish overall. In Pro Truggy I got off to a good start slowly picking them off till I at one time got up to fourth and after a good battle with Tyler Hooks had to settle for a top five! When Pro Buggy came around the track was extremely blown out and difficult and from the start, and after running mid-pack for the first 20-minutes I had to retire early due to an electrical issue. Want to give a HUGE shoutout to all my sponsors for everything they do! Matt, Daniel and the whole Tekno Team for the amazing cars and all the help! Lance Heidmann for the awesome engines! Both ran flawlessly all weekend even with a 45-minute truck Main, and had excellent fuel mileage with 9:30 in Buggy!! And to Daniel and new rep Brian Lewis for the support and keeping my cars glued to the track!!
Also big thanks to my parent for all their support and sacrifice to get me to this point!!
Thanks to all my sponsors!
