See: XRAY

This past weekend was held the 5th Annual Big Bend Shootout at Capital City Raceway in Florida. It rained the entire week leading up to the race but the track crew did an amazing job getting the track as ready as they could. The track presented one of the roughest and most challenging track conditions and due to the nature of the track conditions, the drivers had to completely change their normal setup to handle the rough terrain but yet, high grip conditions and extreme cold weather. In Pro Nitro Buggy it was XRAY’s Landen Lewis who managed to take the win from Tekno’s Kenny Morris, Jr. in second and Serpent’s Will McGiver in third. Serpent driver Christian Bruck and Mugen’s Carlos Segui rounded out the top 5.

Stees & Fischer win at US Open race

See: XRAY

This past weekend was held the US Open race at Sun City Raceway in El Paso, Texas. Joey from THE DIRT put in a great layout for the event and it was a lot of fun to drive on. It flowed really well and still worked when the track started to build some character. The dirt that they had at the track was also pretty awesome, very loamy such as RC Tracks of Las Vegas when they ran the track wet, a real off-road type of track. After three rounds of qualifying XRAY driver Tanner Stees was able to TQ in E-buggy and nitro buggy classes. Sunday was the 10-minute A-main for E-buggy as well as a 30-minute semi and then a 60-minute final for nitro buggy.
