Team Losi Racing's Mike Garrison wins at 2014 Spring Classic

The winter months are over and that means the end of the indoor of-froad
season for many Midwest racers, as they prepare to go outdoors. Finishing
off the indoor off-road season is the annual "Spring Classic" event hosted
by 80/35 Raceway in Grimes, Iowa.

This year's event attracted 160+ entries consisting of racers from all
across the Midwest including Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin,
Missouri, and more!

Team Losi Racing driver, Mike Garrison, made the trip for the "2014 Spring
Classic" to race in the 4WD Modified SCT class. The technical track layout
made for some very close racing in all classes. Garrison would capture the
overall TQ spot in Saturday's qualifying, leading up to Sunday's triple
A-Mains with his Team Losi Racing TEN-SCTE 2.0.


As the tone sounded for A1 on Sunday morning, the field stayed close
several minutes into the race. Eventually the TEN-SCTE 2.0 of Garrison
began to stretch out on the field, crossing the line for the win. A2 would
be a mirror image of A1, as once again the field was tight. Garrison would
once again take the win start to finish, crowning him the 2014 Spring
Classic 4WD SCT Champion!

Richards & Phend top TLR Shootout at Dirtburners

Race Report from Team Losi Racing's JP Richards:



Over the weekend I attend the TLR Shootout at Dirt Burners Hobbies and Raceway in Livonia, Michigan. There was practice all day Friday and Saturday with 3 rounds of rocket round qualifying with single A mains. The race brought just over 200 entries of the best racers in MI and Ohio. Due to the large amount of entries they decided to go to 2 rounds of qualifying with 2 bumps ups for the mains.



2WD - My Team Losi Racing 22 2.0 in mid motor configuration with AKA Déjà Vù's and Pinstripes, was dialed all day long from start to finish. I was able to go out and set a blistering pace in the first heat that was able to hold up through the remaining 4 heats. Round 2 finding a better tire sauce my car got even better. I was able to better my round 1 TQ run by 3 seconds. I would start the main on pole and would lead the first lap, till a slight mistake let Luke by, but 1 lap later I got by for the lead and continued to build on it till I finished on my own lap.

Top 5:
1- JP Richards - TLR
2 -Dakotah Phend - TLR
3- Al horne - AE
4- Aydin Horne - AE
5- Luke Richards - Kyosho




4WD - My Team Losi Racing 22-4 with AKA Déjà Vù's and Typos was good all day. Round 1 I was in a tough qualifier with traffic. I was able to get 2nd in the round 6 seconds back from Dakotah. In round 2 after making some changes to my car it was on rails for the last round. While on a TQ run I made some mistakes and wasn't able to better TQ. For the main I lined up 2nd behind Dakotah. I was able to apply pressure the first 2 minutes, but experiences a servo issue making the car hard to drive. I was able finish 2nd after the 7 minutes.

Top 5:
1- Dakotah Phend - TLR
2- JP Richards - TLR
3- Al Horne - AE
4- Dustin Richards - AE
5- Luke Richards - Kyosho
