Ryan Lopez takes Alabama Nitro!

VP Pro reports – “The Alabama Nitro was a Blast containing the Mid South RC Pro Series held in Wilsonville, Alabama. The track conditions were by far the best I’ve seen. We had all day Friday practicing to get our vehicles ready for qualifying on Saturday. There was some stiff competition and I knew I had to get my stuff right in order to TQ and win. The first round of qualifying was pretty much my safe run in Truggy and buggy. Both Vehicles were great but just couldn’t get a solid run in. I ran VP Pro Medium Flexx Turbo Trax throughout the whole weekend on buggy and truggy. My lap times were very consistent in my other qualifiers. My 2nd round of qualifying wasn’t so good having bad luck in both classes which I ended up 4th overall in buggy and truggy. I did some changes to the truggy which had helped me in the 3rd round in TQing and buggy was handling great which also TQ’d the 3rd round. When it came to the 4th round of qualifying I knew I had to push it in both classes in order for me to TQ for the final events. In truggy I made too many mistakes in my heat which gave Alan Burton the TQ for truggy. The 4th heat of buggy went really well. Alan and I was swapping positions throughout the qualifier making it intense but coming to the end I came through with the win that put me first in the Final event.” Read More… [Source – vp-pro-usa.com]
