Posted on Posted in At the Track, Race Results

It’s the dedication that makes the JConcepts team special. Having speed is just a part of the package and of course, very important to any type of racing. However, you can’t directly measure dedication and is something you can see over an extended period of time. Day in and day out, the JConcepts team is always putting in hard work to achieve their best results. In recognition to the team’s dedication, this edition of Winning Wednesday goes out to them. Thanks team!

 

From his killer performance at The Wicked Weekend where he showcased his speed potential, Florida’s Lee Setser dedicated more time towards his 1/8th Ebuggy program racing at SS Hobbies & Raceway. Lee was able to TQ and take the win running JConcepts blue Lil’ Chasers along with Fin titanium turnbuckles and Hybrid lexan wing.

 

Making the 4th round of the RC Pro Series race hosted by T&T Speedway in Shreveport, LA where Jerry was able to set the TQ time in SCT and Ebuggy using blue Hybrids on his Ebuggy and green 3Ds on his SCT. However, Mother Nature would have other plans on main day bringing heavy rainfall which resulted in Dean taking the win based upon his qualifying position. Good thing he got it done during qualifying!

 

JConcepts’ Pacific NW team driver, Evan Overmars, entered a unique race at Tacoma R/C Raceway over the weekend. For the first time ever, TRCR hosted a 10 hour enduro race that consisted of multiple teams of 5 drivers racing for a total of 10 hours in 1 hour driver increments. Their car of choice was a team built Team Associated B6 decked out in JConcepts accessories including shock caps, collars, spring cups, servo mount, titanium shock stand offs, S2 body, and clay compound Space Bars fronts and Dirt Web rears. Guess what? His team took the win!

 

Erik Voelkle was able to attend the LutzRC Hometown Shootout in Ohio, hosted by Medina RC Raceway and had great success in the 4×4 SCT class. Erik was able to take the win using green Double Dees on his truck. Not only was Erik able to win the 4×4 SCT class, he also won a Futaba radio in the raffle and instantly gave it away to a young driver at the race. What a legend!

 

Improving your speed takes time. A lot of time. Caleb Stevens has been putting in the work every weekend regardless if it’s a big event or a club race. During the “Friday Night Lights” race at Extreme RC Raceway, Caleb was able to take his TLR rides to the winner circle in both the 1/8th Ebuggy and Etruggy classes. Caleb’s winning tire choice? Green Reflex tires! Great job Caleb and good luck at the Extreme Dirt Invitationals this weekend.

 

It’s good to see new faces make the Winning Wednesday post as Todd Brewer was able to take the win in round 5 of the Team Associated/Reedy Summer Series at Hobbytown Hobbyplex. Originally from California, Todd now resides in Bellevue, Nebraska and currently running for JConcepts and Schuurspeed. Todd was able to take the win in stock short course over some fast fellows. Nice job Todd.

 

Once again, JConcepts’ Australian Ace takes another win! This time, Ray Munday was able to showcase his speed at Mildura “Mallee Madness 11” drivers series in Victoria, Australia where Ray was able to win the 2wd and 4wd modified classes using blue Dirt Maze tires and S2 bodies to help him get to the top step of the podium. Andrew Selvaggii and Ray’s son would both make the podium as well. Great team effort guys!
