Drake Takes 1st Place in Buggy & Truggy at Round 1 of Nova Rossi Summer Series

The 2009 Nova Rossi Summer Series was held at Revelation Raceway July 11th. The event had 10 heats of drivers from Southern CA. The Pro buggy class turned out to be a bit of a warm-up for this weeks ROAR 1/8th Nationals for many drivers. Losi driver Adam Drake TQ’d both rounds of qualifying, and took the A-Main victory by two laps over the second place driver. Four Losi drivers and their 8IGHT 2.0 Buggy Race Rollers finished in the top five spots with Matt Schreffler in third, Chris Burling in fourth and Justin Watson in fifth place. All four Losi drivers were running Nitrotane fuel and Losi 450-series tires.

In the 1/8th truck class Adam was able to again take the TQ and win the A-Main in front of fellow Losi driver Robert Wickhan who finished in second place. Both Adam and Robert fueled their 8IGHT-T 2.0 Truggy Race Rollers with Nitrotane.

Congratulations to Adam and the Losi Team!
