Event: Winter Racing League – Round 3
Date: December 8, 2012
Track: CRCRC

Race Reporter: Dustin Richards

We are in the dead of winter and the CRCRC WRL has proved it is here to compete for the largest most competitive RC Racing series in the country. Drivers from all over the Midwest are making the trip to Columbus. Major manufacturers like Team Associated, TLR, Reedy, Orion, X Factroy, Viper, Airtronics, Spectrum and more are all getting in on the action as their drivers make the trip. This round 3 had 180+ entries. Round 1 had 180+ and round 2 had over 170.

I decided to run 2wd Mod Buggy and 2wd Mod SCT at this series. My gold Bar Codes on 2wd were awesome all day. On SCT I can Gold Bar Codes Rear and Gold Pressure Points on the front. When the dust had settled for qualifying I was 4th in 2wd Main and 2nd on the grid in SCT.

When the mains rolled around tensions were high and everyone was excited to see the top names in the Midwest compete for the points in their respective classes. The 2wd A was a little rough for me and several mistakes had me settling for 5th. In the 2wd SCT A I did not have enough for the TQ, Luke Richards and settled for second. Luke was running JConcepts Gold pressure points on his SCT all the way around. After 3 rounds a single point separate me and Luke for the lead in the 2wd SCT points for the series. I still lead the 2wd Champ bracket that takes the best combined points in 2wd Mod Buggy and 2wd Mod SCT.

Congratulations got out to fellow JConcepts driver JP Richards for winning the 2wd Mod Buggy Main on the last lap.
