Brand wins at Southern Off-road Series

Loganville RC Raceway was the host for the 2nd round of the Southern Off-road Series. Dave Duncan and Mac Davis made the trip from Florida to represent JConcepts and assist the team attending the race. Shay Brand was running the Pro Nitro Buggy class as well as the Pro eBuggy class.

Mark Moon was also there running 2wd and 4wd Mod Buggy. Practice started Friday afternoon and with regular track maintenance the traction was coming up nicely. Shay felt the green compound Metrix tyres worked best for him in eBuggy and ran Stackers in green on his Nitro Buggy.

On Saturday morning the gates opened at 7am and 3 rounds of qualifying kicked off at 10:30am. Qualifying was based on your single fastest run out of three. All of the A Mains were seated with top 10 cars and 2 bumps from the B Main. After the 3 full rounds of qualifying, JConcepts had team drivers starting TQ in 4 classes. Shay Brand in the Pro Nitro Buggy and Pro eBuggy classes, Mark Moon in 4wd Mod Buggy and Mac Davis in Intermediate eBuggy.

In the Pro eBuggy A Main, Shay led the race tone to tone taking the win. Mark Moon started 2nd on the grid in the 2wd Mod Buggy main. With a hard fought battle through out the 8 minute race, Mark took the lead and finished with a win. The Intermediate eBuggy main had Mac Davis starting at the number 1 spot. Mac led the field from the tone and took the win.

Thanks the crew at Loganville RC Raceway and to Gene Samuels on a well run program. We’ll see you at the next one!
