I attended the 5th round of the Tri-State series at Stateline Rc in Fremont,IN. This series covered Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan among several great tracks. This was the only race I was able to attend in the series. Great group of racers showed up and made the racing a blast!
  I have been on a month long string of races at different tracks and even getting a 1/10 points race in. My cars have been flawless and I've been driving really well and results are showing. My dad puts in a ton of setup work to get me the best cars I can get and really can't thank him enough!

  I ran nitro and electric 1/8 buggy at this event.

  In ebuggy I was able to TQ all three of the seven minute qualifiers. My TLR 8E 3.0 powered by LRP electronics were all out hooked up on green JConcepts Diamond Bars. My Spektrum radio equipment kept my lines on point all weekend. Main time came and I pulled away from the start and took the win!!

  In nitro buggy I would tq two of the three rounds of the seven minute qualifiers. The one I didn't TQ was a mistake on my part and my TLR teammate Collin Weatherholt would TQ that round. Again my TLR 8B 3.0 powered by my LRP engine with the fuel mileage mod by The Nitro Shop would sip the Bones Brew fuel for awesome power and mileage all day!! My JConcepts green Diamond Bars shined bright and would lay down some blistering laps all day. Good thing I had my awesome Spektrum radio equipment to keep my lines on point all day again! Main time came and going around the corner I hit a kicker on the small double and I landed on my lid and falling to dead last. Took a while for a turn marshal to get to me and I was over half a lap back from the leader. Wasn't too worried though as my car has been so fast these last few races. Put my head down and roared to catch the leader. Made a sweet pass and checked out from there to take the dominating win!!

 BIG thanks to all you media sites who post my race reports! Can't thank everyone enough!!

"Southern Nationals is a wrap. Louisiana treated me well!"

The track had to have been the best track anyone has ever raced on. The jumps were huge and track flowed really well. It held together, and traction was awesome! I took the TQ in pro buggy in the first 2 rounds of qualifying, while struggling with my truggy. I would start in the 5 spot for the main in truggy.

At the start of the 45 minute truck main, I had a clean start with some very close racing. I made a small mistake that dropped me back a couple spots, only then to get sent off the track the next lap. I was sent all the way to 13th and was very close to being lapped. I put my head down and fought back to 2nd. I was turning fast laps and got the lead down to 6 seconds to finish 2nd behind Joe Bornhorst who was on cruise control. Congrats dude!

In buggy, the start was a toss up.....people were switching spots and wrecking everywhere. I cased the back double and lost the lead to Lutz on the first lap. Only to regain it after dodging a wreck on the front straight. I continued to stretch my lead and lapped the field at about 20 minutes. Around that time, I made small mistake and flipped upside down, the marshall slipped and almost fell on my car but stuffed my pipe in the process. Flammed out, got refired and got back on the track right in front of the epic 2nd place battle between J.R. and Joe. I maintained a good lead til the finish to take the win!

Successful and very fun weekend of racing with friends. Had good times on and off the track. Now onto the Byrons race this weekend in Nebraska! Thanks to all my sponsors for their support, couldn't do it without you! TLR, HORIZON HOBBY and special thanks to my dad and Casey Wilson for the pit help!
Tyler Jones Wins The Monsters of The Midwest Race at JCP RcCRaceway!

Tyler writes...

This past weekend I attended the final round of The Monsters of The Midwest series. The series visited four different tracks in three different states. This final round was held at JCP Rc Raceway in Edinburgh,IN.

  In ebuggy qualifying I would go on to tq all three rounds with my LRP powered TLR 8E 3.0 running on JConcepts green Stackers and kept under control with my Spektrum radio equipment. Main time would come and at the tone I checked out and lead wire to wire for the win with Jaythen Hudson third and his dad second. We've put a lot of testing into this car lately and it is so much fun to drive!

  In nitro buggy qualifying it would take until third qualifier to get the tq with some stiff competition! My LRP engine with The Nitro Shop fuel mileage mod helped sip my Bones Brew fuel in my TLR 8B 3.0 to lay down some super fast consistent laps. My Spektrum radio equipment helped keep my car flying through the layout. Main time would come and at the tone I started pulling away instantly. I got caught up with some lapped traffic and allowed second and third to close in some. Wasn't enough though as I pulled away again. Just lapped second place and made a mistake and decided to let second and third go as they were battling for position. I just followed them till the end taking the win with Collin Weatherholt second and Derek Weatherholt third. My cars are the best they have ever been and I've had some great wins with our older setup. The setup work my dad puts in amazing. He's always trying to get me every little bit and we aren't afraid to try different things.

  I didn't run the whole six race series though. I ran three of them with three tq's, two wins, and a third. Should have won all three but we tried stretching fuel mileage a little too far and come from a lap down to finish third that race.

  Thanks to:

TLR's Ellis and Horizon Hobby UK Team Wrap-up the Off-Road Wars Series

TLR/Horizon Hobby UK Team Report:
Off-Road Wars 3 - Season Review

The third Off Road Wars series is now over for another winter season and what a successful championship campaign the team has had. Looking back on the series TLR has dominated both 2WD and 4WD on the array of circuits at Maritime. The premier indoor facility has seen some exciting and challenging tracks that have varied from multi-surface through to 100% carpet. The surface change is not the only variable that has occurred over the course of the championship with the track extension being brought in for the fourth round opening the track up allowing for a greater variety of layouts. Both decisions by the club have proved to be popular among the racers going to show that the Maritime club are truly about providing a great track for all to compete on. Speaking with Ian Knight about the track surface change he mentioned that the intention is to introduce wooden turns from time to time to change things up, but the 100% carpet circuit has worked well and provided a different challenge from the traditional mix at the venue.

In 4WD the team took both TQ honors and the win at every rounds of the season with Karl Jackson, Christopher Delves, Billy Fletcher and Ross Nicholson all contributing to this impressive tally. The 22-4 really showed it’s pace in their hands with Karl Jackson being crowned Champion at the penultimate round of the series having won 3 of the 4 rounds and finishing 2nd in the other round, leaving the fight for second and third to go down to the wire between Billy and Chris. At the final round of the series Billy clinched TQ ahead of Chris and Karl only to make an error in the final that ended his fight for 2nd handing it to Chris whilst Ross took the final victory of the season to end it on a high and take fifth in the championship. This meant that TLR took 4 of the top 5 championships spots! Congratulations to Karl on his first ORW title, he was fully deserved of the win ahead of teammates Chris and Billy with the trio often having some very close and exciting racing during qualifying and the finals.

The 2WD class was dominated by Ellis Stafford in the early rounds taking the TQ spot and the win at rounds 1 and 2. Christopher Delves would be runner up behind Ellis but on occasion looked as if he could take the fight to the lead driver only to make small errors that cost big. Chris’ chance came at round 3 where he took his first TQ and Win of the series which couple with a tough day at the office for Ellis meant that Chris was leading the championship going into the 4th round. Ellis resumed normal performance by clinching maximum points in the fourth round and thus taking the title fight down to the final round with Chris having a single point lead over Ellis. At the final round of the series 8th scale pro Jack Embling was in attendance to take the competition level up a notch. Whilst Jack took the TQ spot the final wasn’t a one horse race with the deciding podium positions coming down to the last few laps where Jack took the win 1.5seconds ahead of Chris and Ellis. Despite beating his teammate Ellis had a low counting score from round 3 that he dropped to take the title win by 3 points. Billy Fletcher has had a tough time in 2wd often showing blistering pace but seemingly not coming together for him but despite this he managed to round off the top 3 in the 2wd championship in 3rd to make it another championship lockout for the TLR/Horizon Hobby UK team. Karl Jackson and Glenn Doman finished up 8th and 10th respectively in the championship that meant 5 of the top 10 were TLR 22 2.0 proving the cars pace and speed at this venue. Congratulations to Ellis on his impressive third consecutive championship win at ORW’s.

It has to be said that the Maritime track crew out did themselves at every round giving up their own time during the week on the lead up to the event to build tracks that challenged and excited all. This is often a thankless job that goes un-noticed but all who competed at the event had nothing but praise for their efforts and we would like to thank the guys for their work on the lead up to the event not to mention during the event to repair damaged features and keep the racing going. To the ladies (and Doug) at Maritime Much we all thank you for the countless cups of tea and breakfast’s you have prepared for all the racers to keep us going. Even if we have a bad run a cup of tea can fix everything and help us to focus on the problems we are having. Finally thank you to Ian Knight who not only runs a superb event but works hard in the background before and after the event doing many unenviable tasks that we all take for granted. Whether it’s changing a PT number or putting up the race results immediately after the event so you can analyse what happened throughout the day and see where you are in the championship. If you have ever contemplated coming to race at Maritime we highly recommend it if you are looking for some indoor racing at a premier facility.

Off Road Wars 4 will commence later on in 2015 and the team will again be back to defend their titles! For now the team are looking to focus on the upcoming national season and will be using the next month or so to prepare and we would like to wish all our team the best of luck on track this season.
