JBRL Nitro Series Rd 1 TLR Style

This past weekend kicked off round 1 of the JBRL Nitro Series in Beaumont, CA at Thunder Alley R/C Raceway. There was a huge turnout with a total of 235 entries that came from all over California, Arizona, Nevada, and even a few from Illinois.  TLR had many of their top level drivers including Adam Drake, Mike Truhe, Matt Castellano, Drew Moller, Matt Schreffler, Colby Poh, and Jacob Hass along with many other TLR drivers in attendance to contest for the 2012 JBRL Nitro Series championship.

Adam Drake took the TQ in Pro Buggy, Pro Truggy and Pro E-Buggy.  In the Pro Buggy class Adam Drake was followed by teammate Mike Truhe and Cody King in third.  Adam Drake won Pro Truggy and Pro E-Buggy from start to finish.  The E-Buggy final turned into a bit of a mud race as storms rolled in.  Shortly after they made a decision to cancel the remaining three races and the final finishing order for Pro Buggy would be determined by the qualifying order.
