This past weekend was the Mugen Challenge hosted by LCRC Raceway in Pennsylvania.  The event had nearly 300 entries which was the largest turnout for the Mugen Challenge.  Mugen Seiki’s Team Manager Tim Long and Adam Drake arrived a day early to put on a free driver clinic for the racers.  Tim and Adam answered questions and spent time with each of the drivers discussing racing and looking over their vehicles.  The LCRC staff did an amazing job controlling practice on the Joey Christensen layout.

In the 1/8 Nitro Truck class Mugen’s Barry Pettit was the top qualifier. In the final Pettit, Bornhorst, Dickerson, and Drake all took turns leading the race.  By the half way point of the 45 minute final Adam Drake settled into a comfortable lead followed by Barry Pettit, and young Mugen driver Ethan Mackanick making it a sweep of the podium for Mugen Seiki Racing and Pro-Line.
