Located just outside of Gainseville, Florida, Newberry RC park was the location of the 3rd round of the Supercup series and had 270 entries for the 1-day race. As usual, the racing was incredibly close with the best drivers from all corners of the state. In the modified Truck A-main XRAY teammates Landen Lewis and Leon McIntosh would battle for TQ throughout qualifying. In the end Landen would take the TQ honors with Leon in the 2 spot. The main was super late at night when the track was much cooler with moisture coming up in the groove so drivers had to do a tyre change at the last minute.

In the main, Landen and Leon would run nose-to-tail for the first half of the race. Landen got it wrong off the back table top jump and Leon went right by. For the last half of the race Leon’s focus turned to getting through traffic clean and not making any mistakes. A few tie ups with back markers let Landen close right back in for the last two laps but when the tone sounded Leon was able to come across with the win. Landen finished in second while Jordan Singletary rounded out the podium in third.
