Last weekend Thunder RC hosted the 2017 Tennessee Winterchamps in Nashville. Owner Robert Dirla plans to replace his dirt with a carpet off-road track, so this was likely the last trophy race on their wonderful yellow river-bottom dirt. X Factory’s Paul Sinclair took the pole position in both 2wd modified buggy and 2wd mod Short Course. Paul said:

“In 2wd buggy Jeremy Daniels challenged me all weekend. We swapped TQ runs through qualifying, each pushing the other faster, and I was able to lay down the only 25 lap run of the weekend to finally secure the #1 grid spot.”

In the Short Course A main, contact between the 2nd and 3rd qualified drivers in the second corner gave Paul an early lead he wouldn’t relinquish and he cruised through traffic to victory.

The 2wd buggy A main was a different story, with Paul and Jeremy battling through several lead changes to the very end. An early wreck made things dicey for TQ Sinclair. Paul reports:

“I was able to gap the field a little bit over the first minute or so, but I rolled my B6 getting on the straight away and Jeremy got through. Pushing hard I caught back up, and we battled through the second half of the race. On the very last lap I turned up the pressure and came out on top. It was an excellent, hard-fought race, and I’m glad I came away with the narrow victory.”
