    Brian Miskolczi

    The 3rd Annual Fall Brawl Trophy Race took place earlier this month at Awesome RC Hobbies in Fredericksburg, Virginia. TLR team driver, Brian Miskolczi jumped head first into the brawl racing all three 1/8 classes (Nitro Buggy, Nitro Truggy, E-Buggy). Miskolczi wrapped up TQ in both Nitro Buggy and Nitro Truggy after qualifying, but a DNF would ruin his chance at Buggy class win. He set out for redemption, as he walked away from the field and went on to win the brawl in Nitro Truggy!
