JR’s Double Victory at the FORCE Finals
The final round of the 2012 FORCE Series was held this past weekend in Lutz Florida at the Hurricane RC clubs venue inside Lake Park. Home of some of the fastest nitro racers in the state, the competition is always top notch. With the tracked prepped, and practice completed, it was time to get to racing.
First round of the 1/8 open class TQ went to JR Mitch, with his Losi 8ight 2.0 equipped with JConcepts Hybrids. As is typical of racing in Florida, the track gets faster as the day goes on and this would be no different. Bumping JR down to third with an average, by his standards, run.
For the A final, TQ Billy Easton lead the beginning, with JR moving into second on the first lap. With Billy in the lead and JR closely following, the battle began. Changes throughout the first half of the race, the two drivers moving through traffic and pit stops. JR finally gained the lead for good, and held on to finish on the top step of the podium. Blue Hybrids worked flawlessly all day.
In Mod SCT, JR again took the top spot to complete his weekend.
