P-L Driver Colton Kiefer Wins Next Level RC 2018 Midwest Spring Nationals on Pro-Line Fugitive Lites

Well summer is here and so is the hot weather and 1/8 racing.  I traveled a couple of hours south to the Next Level RC 2018 Midwest Nationals Spring Nationals race.  It was almost 100 degrees. 

I raced 1:8 Nitro Buggy and Over 40 Nitro Buggy.  The track was hard packed and a groove started to form. 
I decided to run X2 Fugitive Lites for the quals and Mains. 
This race used a unique format.  We ran 2 qualifiers and double Mains for all classes. In over 40 I was able to TQ and Win both A-Mains. 

In 1:8 Nitro Buggy I qualified 3rd behind Nate Jaskot and Jonathan Burkhalter.  In the first main, Nate and Jonathan had issues and had to retire.  I missed my pit stop and flamed out but made my way back into second.  In the second Main, it was a fight between Nate and I. 

I was able to come out on top giving me the overall win.
