P-L Driver CJ Jelin at Amain MFG Cup on Pro-Line Hole Shots


This past weekend I attend the Manufacturers Cup at Amain’s Silver Dollar raceway.

I raced Pro Nitro Buggy, Pro Nitro Truggy, and Pro E-Buggy. I ran Pro-Line M3 Hole Shots in the morning and X3 Hole Shots in the heat of the day. The layout was a Reedy Race format for the Pro classes.

That means that every race is a Main, there were 4 Mains for each car, Nitro Mains were 14-minutes and E-Buggy was 9-minutes.


Friday was practice. I ran X3 Hole Shots all day and my cars felt good all day. The pro classes, we got to feel what the starts were going to be like because the open classes were doing seeding. Saturday was A1 and  A2. E-Buggy I had a DNF in A1 and A2 I got a 5th not running my car, thank you Kerry Lemos.
