Round 3 of the Force Series made it’s way to the legendary Lake Park track in Lutz, Florida. As the premiere racing series for 1/8th scale vehicles in the US South Eastern hemisphere, round 3 attracted nearly 200 entries making it one competitive, single day event.
As always, Ryan Eckert and the track crew did a fantastic job getting the track race ready with track prep starting back on Wednesday and throughout the weekend.
The JConcepts team had a cohesive bond and worked well together all weekend; on and off the track. The results would go on to speak for themselves.
