JConcepts reports – “The racing was hot and the food was tasty as the JConcepts Summer Tour rolled into High Springs, FL at Shriverville Raceway. Ken Shriver opened up his personal track for some good ole 1/10th off-road and short course racing on the day before the 4th of July. Weather is typically an issue in Florida in the summer; however race director Matt Mosieur was in high gear all day running 2 qualifiers and mains without a threat of weather all-day-long. Chad “The Chad” Cason, Austin Blankenship and Daimon Borkowitz were locked in an intense battle in stock truck and 2wd stock all day. Chad used his experience to hold off the youth movement in the stock truck class and take the win followed by 9 year old Daimon in 2nd and Austin Blankenship in 3rd. All 3 drivers were running JConcepts tires with Chad running Double Dees and Daimon and Austin running the newly released Flip Outs all in Super Soft Green Compound.”

Neo Buggy continues their report – “Jerome Aigoin put in a stellar run to top Q2 with an 8/5:16.446 suggesting the track has gotten somewhat slower since the top Q1 times were set. We spoke to Jerome and he said he was really happy with his car and didn’t plan to change anything on it for the 3rd and last qualifier for today. Q1 TQ Yannick Aigoin was on a fast pace but blew his chances when he made 3-4 bad mistakes, the surprise for Q2 were Ronnefalk, Alsop and Sartel all putting in good runs. The tough qualifying continues for the likes of Bloomfield & Batlle; the latter on a good run until he crashed and spent some time on his roof – ruining his run. Read more…
