Losi’s Frank Root and Ryan Dunford attended the penultimate round of the 2011 JBRL Electric Series this past Saturday at OCRC Raceway. The track had great grip, and a fun, technical layout. The entry count was very strong at 195 and a great day of racing was had by all.
Pro2 (Modified SC) –
Frank’s Losi XXX-SCT mounted with JConcepts Gold Bar Codes was on point again in qualifying. Frank would run the fastest time in both of the two rounds of qualifying, taking the TQ by over 8 seconds! The single 6-minute main started with a brief challenge from 2nd place, but Frank would soon pull away leaving the rest of the field to battle for 2nd place. Ryan Dunford also on JConcepts Gold Bar Codes, will come through the field and work his way up to the battle for 2nd, and would eventually take the spot. Ryan was the only driver to finish on the lead lap as Frank ran a very clean main taking his 3rd A-main win this season! Frank had this to say, “I really cannot believe how great of a combo the XXX-SCT and JConcepts SC tires have been this summer. The fantastic speed and grip of the tires, combined with low wear, helps to keep my XXX-SCT easy to drive and at the front, Fantastic!”
SC Pro Buggy –
This was the first ever SC Pro Buggy race in the history of the JBRL. The Pro Buggy class is a 17.5T, no timing class racing the all new Losi XXX-SCB Short Course Buggy and other comparable vehicles. Mod 2wd point leader, Aaron Lane would have the honors of the first SC Pro Buggy TQ, taking it in the 2nd round just ahead of Doug Nielsen. Come the main, Aaron has a slight issue, leaving Ryan Dunford and Doug “Casper” Nielsen to battle it out for the win. Doug was a bit faster on the track, but little bobbles prevented him from making a pass on Ryan for the lead. Ryan would stay clean and take the first every Pro Buggy Victory, with Casper in 2nd, and Keith Whisler finishing out the podium. All 3 podium drivers used JConcepts Gold Bar Codes to give them the advantage needed to finish well.
