ROAR Region 2 Off Road Race
Event: ROAR Region 2 Off Road Race
Date: March 24, 2012
Track: East Coast Hobbies
JConcepts Team Drivers Mike Gay and Andy Castellini lead the way in Winchester, Virginia. East Coast Hobbies hosted the ROAR Region 2 Off Road Race on March 24th at their new indoor track. The new clay service and technical track was the scene of some close racing, and after three rounds of qualifying, it was Mike Gay holding the top spots in 2 Wheel Mod Buggy and 4 Wheel Mod Buggy, and Andy Castellini holding on to the TQ spot in Mod Stadium Truck. The track was consistent all day with JConcepts blue Bar Codes in the front and JConcepts green Bar Codes in the rear being the winning combination. The new medium Profiled Insert was the perfect choice for the grip needed to maintain the speed through the turns.
The “Double A Mains” started off with Modified Stadium Truck. Andy started and ended each of the mains in first place giving him a solid 1st Place overall win. Mike then followed up in four wheel mod winning both of his mains, winning overall 1st Place with Andy on his heels in second.
The 2 Wheel Mod A1 turned out to be trouble for Mike as he fell victim to some lapped traffic, giving an edge to Andy who went on for the win in A1 with Mike right behind. A2 was Mike’s from the start, taking the lead and never looking back. Andy’s finish in third in the A2 main put Mike on top of the list for the First Place Trophy with Andy finishing 2nd overall.
