Drake takes JBRL Nitro Series Rd 8

This past weekend was the final round of the eight race JBRL Nitro Series held at Hot Rod Hobbies in Saugus, CA.  In the Expert buggy class qualifying would be extremely close on the small high bite track.  Team Losi Racing driver Adam Drake would take round 1 TQ in the early morning but would see that TQ slip away in round 2 as the track got much faster and a few problems would see The Drake starting in the runner up position for the 25min A-main.

The start of the A-main was quite exciting as some of the pit guys were not ready for the start but the tone went anyways and all you saw were a bunch of cars getting thrown onto the straightaway.  Fairly clean start for the circumstances and the top three on the grid had a great battle for the first half of the race.  Adam Drake would take the lead at the halfway mark with his great fuel mileage (one stop in 25min) and never look back taking the win by just over 12sec.  Teammates Cody smith and Jacob Haas had a great battle almost the entire race with Cody just betting our Jacob for 5th overall.
