Yesterday was race #8 and final race of Nwa winter points series. Going into final race in 2wd buggy mod I had a close battle with xray team driver that if he tq’d and won we would have to have a race off ending with same exact points and places so I knew I had to get the job done to not have that play out.
In mod buggy qualifiers my Associated B6.1 on Pro-Line tires was working awesome but through 2 qualifiers I was sitting in 2nd place behind xray team driver. In 3rd and last qualifier both him and myself got great starts both 1 lap up on tq pace for entire race and in last lap I would turn corner gun for the line and take tq by .030 of a second, securing my 1st place by a mear. 030 of a second and start tq in the main event.
In 2wd main, I would get out quick , run a good race but take 2nd place at race end.
In 4wd, my Associated B74 on Pro-Line tires was working awesome, but with tight points battle in 2wd class an me already having points class in this class wrapped up I wanted to concentrate fully on 2wd class so I did not run the first qualifiers, but ran the last qualifier and main. I was able to qualify 2nd for the amain on 2 week old tires and in the main take 2nd place at race end.
Overall at 8 week series end i would win both Mod 2wd class by a mear 2 points , and I would also win my Mod 4wd buggy class.
