Club R/C located in Houston, Texas hosted their first Dash for Cash race. Dave Duncan made the trip from Florida to represent JConcepts and to assist the team attending the race with Dustin Evans, JR Mitch and Tanner Denney in attendance.
On Friday, the doors opened at 9am for a full day of practice. The track had a new layout installed less than a week ago so it was starting to build grip as practice went along. Dustin, JR, Tanner and Dave felt that Gold Dirt Webs with Dirt-Tech inserts front and rear of all cars was going to be the fast ticket.
On Saturday morning doors opened at 7am with 2 hours of open practice. Drivers meeting and the start of round 1 qualifying at 9:15am. Qualifying was based on your 1 fastest round. 4 full rounds were run on Saturday. All A mains where set with the 1 fastest qualifier and no bumps with triple A mains being run to decide the over all winner of each class.
The Dash For Cash event had teams set up for the money pay out. The teams where picked by pairing the Top Qualifier of each class with the last place qualifier in the same class. Then the 2nd place qualifier was paired with the second to last qualifier and so on and so on.
Sunday morning the doors opened at 7am and the triple mains started at 10am. Dustin was TQ in both 2wd and 4wd mod buggy and Tanner was TQ in mod truck. Dustin would go on and win 4wd mod buggy with his JConcepts equipped TLR 22-4 equipped with Gold Dirt Webs and Dirt-Tech inserts front and rear. Tanner won 2wd mod buggy with his JConcepts equipped AE B5M with Gold Dirt Webs and Dirt-Tech inserts front and rear. Tanner also won mod truck with his JConcepts equipped AE T5M with Gold Dirt Webs and Dirt-Tech inserts front and rear.
The Cash money pay outs had Dustin winning in the 4wd mod buggy class, JR won in the 2wd mod buggy class and Dave won in the mod truck class.
