AKA lays rubber down in the pits

AKA Rubber Pit Mat

AKA has just released their new rubber pit mat. The AKA Rubber Pit Mat is the perfect lining to keep your pit table looking clean and sharp. The mat measures in at 4ft x 2ft x 1/8″ thick.

The track was made up of fresh dirt, and with very little water it became an extremely rough racing surface for the competition to tackle. XRAY’s Martin Bayer would take the overall TQ spot after qualifying, but struggled in the semi final. He would start 4th in the final, but fought his way past the Carsten Keller and Team Durango’s Jörn Neumann to take the win!

The 2014 Novarossi Nitro Challenge took place at MRRC Raceway this past weekend in New York.  TLR, Novarossi, Pro-Line driver Adam Drake was on hand to help with set-ups and engine tuning.  Saturday kicked off with four rounds of qualifying.  Qual points were used to set the starting grid for the 30 minute truck final and the 45 minute buggy final.  Drake was on fire during qualifying and took the TQ honors in truck and buggy by setting the fastest time in 3 out of the 4 rounds.

In the 30 minute truck final Drake was followed closely by his teammate Anthony Mazzara.  Drake and Mazzarra pulled away from the rest of the field and finished first and second.  TLR 8ight T 3.0, Nova Rossi engines and Pro-Line M3 Holeshots finish 1st and 2nd!

By the time the 45 minute buggy final was up the track was getting extremely bumpy.  Drake again got off to a great start and pulled away from Reno Savoya and Anthony Mazzara.  Drake ended up winning by a little over 29 seconds.  Second went to Savoya, and third was Mazzara.  TLR 8ight 3.0, Nova Rossi Keep Off 4 engine, and Pro-Line Holeshot 2.0 finish 1st and 3rd!
