And just like the rest of the Spring Mother Nature had a part in our opening day of Off Road!!!
First off would like to thank those that helped during the week to get to Sunday and big thanks to Ryan for digging a couple trenches to get the rest of the water off the track.
We got going close to on time knowing we might have to deal with weather in the afternoon. Qualifying was FAST and close in all the classes. Was great to see first time racers Cody and Riley hitting the speedway for their first RC race in Sportsman and even Neil who has run some indoor oval put down a off road truck and had a great day as well. In a super competitive Mod SC class we saw a couple oval regular guys put their trucks at the top of the qualifying list with Trevor grabbing the TQ. BTW the top three guys all had 13.5 motors strapped in!!! All in all a great qualifing effort by all.
With bad weather rolling in we got the mains going as quickly as possible. Mike Craft took home the win in Sportsman, Taylor wne to victory lane in Mod SC, Ryan took checkers in a sick 22 lap run in 1/8 buggy and then we got to the Mod 4×4 class. 3 minutes in to the final race of the day and with Richard leading the pack and ahead of the days TQ driver Booper all heck broke loose and we had to stop the race. Drivers quickly packed up their gear and took shelter. I would like to thank the 5 of so racers who helped me get my tent and scoring equipment down in record time. We then pretty much watch the rain come down and put an end to our day.
We will make up that last main at our next race!!!
