This past weekend Thunder Alley hosted the final round of the Grass Roots Racing Series. The event had nearly 150 entries. The track was hard packed and very technical. I used Pro-Line M3 Holeshot 2.0’s in M3 compound for qualifying and the twenty minute final. Cody King tq’ed round one of buggy.
I tq’ed the second round, but wasn’t able to bet Cody’s time from round one. In the final Cody and I had a great battle and were never more than a few seconds apart until the end when Cody ran out of fuel with two laps to go. I took the win by a lap over Matt Schreffler and Cody King held on for third. My Nova Rossi engine had tons of power and was easily able to do the 20 minute final with just one fuel stop.
In the 40+ buggy class, TLR’s Robert Wickham was the top qualifier and finished second behind his teammate Don Vinkemulder. Both Robert and Don were using Pro-Line tires and Nova Rossi Keep Off 4 engines.
