Losi takes 1, 2, 3… Three Times at 2009 Horizon Shootout

The 2009 Horizon Shootout was held at J-Tech Racing and Fun in Tilton, Illinois this past weekend amidst the rain drops early in the weekend, but the weather finally broke and the racing began. During Friday’s practice rain out Losi drivers Adam Drake, Billy Fisher and Mike Truhe were on-hand to answer questions, lend advice and offer setup suggestions to anyone in attendance. One round of controlled practice and two rounds of qualifying set the stage for the mains with Billy Fisher TQing both Truggy and Buggy while Dakota Phend TQed the Electric Buggy class.

After the dust had settled this is the finishing order for the 2009 Horizon Shootout!
