With the Buggy Oliver took the 3th place behind Claus Nielsen (Xray) and Tim Culmsee (Hong Nor), But again we saw him driving very safety and that was what brings him on the 3th place, with a lap down to the 4th place Silas Høgholt.

Cape Fear Invitational

Cape Fear Raceway in Fuquay-Varina, NC held the Cape Fear Invitational.
In Invitational Buggy, the qualifying was extremely close, with the top 5 being within 5 to 8 seconds apart each round. Travis Dupree was able to drive his Losi 8IGHT 2.0 with the Nitrotec Engine and Nitrotane Fuel fast and clean enough to take the TQ spot. In Open Truggy Travis Dupree took the TQ spot with the Losi 8IGHT-T 2.0.
In the Open Truggy Main, Team Losi Racing driver Mike Kendall was able to put a great drive in which would allow him to capture the win.
In Invitational Buggy, Travis jumped out to the lead and proceeded to gap the field quickly. Barry Pettit started a push to gain ground on Travis, getting within 6 seconds early in the race. Travis was able to set a pace for himself, with longer fuel mileage than any other driver and fast pit stops from his pitman Layne Leffleor, which would allow him to eventually go on to win by 3 laps during the 45 minute A-main. Privateer Kevin Bullock finished 4th running a Team Losi 8IGHT 2.0.

TLR 1-2-3 at RC Pro Series Mountain Division

Team Losi Racing drivers Dustin Evans and Matt Chambers attended the final round of the RC Pro Series Mountain Division. Through qualifying Dustin was on his game and took the overall TQ spot for the main with Matt startng 2nd. The main event would prove to be an interesting battle between the two Losi teammates.

At the start Dustin led with Matt in 2nd until a mistake coming on the staightaway allowed Matt to take over the lead. Matt and Dustin stayed close thruogh the first pit stop with Matt leading until he ran out of fuel just before the second fuel stop. This allowed Dustin a comfortable 2 lap lead over Matt who held onto 2nd despite the problem. With 15 minutes to go, Dustin had a problem with a front tire and had to come into the pits for a replacement. This allowed Matt to make up valuable time and get back to within 5 seconds of Dustin. A few small bobbles allowed Matt to take over the lead until a shorter fuel strategy had him pit an extra time. Dustin would cross the finish line first with Matt in second about 10 seconds back and another Losi driven by Chris Peralta rounding out the podium in 3rd.

Congrats are in order for Chris Peralta who took the overall win in Expert Buggy and Expert Truggy for the RC Pro Series Mountain Division!
