JBRL Nitro Series Round 5

249

Adam Drake reports – “The JBRL nitro series round #5 kicked off in Beaumont California at Thunder Alley Raceway with 170+ entries. It was a hot weekend, but the JBRL and Thunder Alley crew did a great job. In the Expert 1/8th Truck class I was able to take the TQ in both rounds of qualifying, followed by Dylan Rodriguez and Levi Jackson. The final was only 15 minutes, but I was able to lead from start to finish and take my third win of the series. In the Expert 1/8th Buggy class I qualified 3rd. At the start of the final I moved into second before the first turn. After the first turn I flamed out and lost nearly one lap. The buggy finals was also only 15 minutes. A little more than half way through the race and I was up to third, but had to pit for a splash of fuel. I ended up 4th overall. My Nova Rossi powered Losi 8ight 2.0 and 8ight T 2.0 preformed great all weekend.”
