"Southern Nationals is a wrap. Louisiana treated me well!"

The track had to have been the best track anyone has ever raced on. The jumps were huge and track flowed really well. It held together, and traction was awesome! I took the TQ in pro buggy in the first 2 rounds of qualifying, while struggling with my truggy. I would start in the 5 spot for the main in truggy.

At the start of the 45 minute truck main, I had a clean start with some very close racing. I made a small mistake that dropped me back a couple spots, only then to get sent off the track the next lap. I was sent all the way to 13th and was very close to being lapped. I put my head down and fought back to 2nd. I was turning fast laps and got the lead down to 6 seconds to finish 2nd behind Joe Bornhorst who was on cruise control. Congrats dude!

In buggy, the start was a toss up.....people were switching spots and wrecking everywhere. I cased the back double and lost the lead to Lutz on the first lap. Only to regain it after dodging a wreck on the front straight. I continued to stretch my lead and lapped the field at about 20 minutes. Around that time, I made small mistake and flipped upside down, the marshall slipped and almost fell on my car but stuffed my pipe in the process. Flammed out, got refired and got back on the track right in front of the epic 2nd place battle between J.R. and Joe. I maintained a good lead til the finish to take the win!

Successful and very fun weekend of racing with friends. Had good times on and off the track. Now onto the Byrons race this weekend in Nebraska! Thanks to all my sponsors for their support, couldn't do it without you! TLR, HORIZON HOBBY and special thanks to my dad and Casey Wilson for the pit help!

This past weekend I attended the final round of The Monsters of The Midwest series. The series visited four different tracks in three different states. This final round was held at JCP Rc Raceway in Edinburgh,IN.

  In ebuggy qualifying I would go on to tq all three rounds with my LRP powered TLR 8E 3.0 running on JConcepts green Stackers and kept under control with my Spektrum radio equipment. Main time would come and at the tone I checked out and lead wire to wire for the win with Jaythen Hudson third and his dad second. We've put a lot of testing into this car lately and it is so much fun to drive!

  In nitro buggy qualifying it would take until third qualifier to get the tq with some stiff competition! My LRP engine with The Nitro Shop fuel mileage mod helped sip my Bones Brew fuel in my TLR 8B 3.0 to lay down some super fast consistent laps. My Spektrum radio equipment helped keep my car flying through the layout. Main time would come and at the tone I started pulling away instantly. I got caught up with some lapped traffic and allowed second and third to close in some. Wasn't enough though as I pulled away again. Just lapped second place and made a mistake and decided to let second and third go as they were battling for position. I just followed them till the end taking the win with Collin Weatherholt second and Derek Weatherholt third. My cars are the best they have ever been and I've had some great wins with our older setup. The setup work my dad puts in amazing. He's always trying to get me every little bit and we aren't afraid to try different things.

  I didn't run the whole six race series though. I ran three of them with three tq's, two wins, and a third. Should have won all three but we tried stretching fuel mileage a little too far and come from a lap down to finish third that race.

  Thanks to:
