Had a good second quarter! I was able to race some club races at our local track St. Charles Raceway (SCR) and managed to make the A-main in both ebuggy and etruggy every race with a win in etruggy and finish in the top three a few times! I also attended the Ams 6.0 this year where I finished 12 out of 60 in open ebuggy and finished 19 overall in etruggy!
Thanks Boca Bearings for all the support !!!
Daniel and I have gotten off to a rocky start this year. Losing 1/8 scale ESC’s at AMS. But since then we’ve been doing OK. I took second place two weeks ago at RC3. Daniel has been driving pro 1/8 buggy and doing very well at it for nine years old. On a good note all the yellow sealed bearings oven stalled are still flawless and work great! My Boca Bearings Rolling 4wd short course with orange seals in my Tekin pro4 is the only truck at my track consistently hitting the biggest jump. Thank all of you for your hard work and our opportunity to roll with you !

After a grueling twelve weeks through three months, we were luckily able to run the last and final race of the TRI-TRACK SPRING RUSH. A first for the South Florida RC Community. Tri County, Mills Pond and Coral Springs teamed up and celebrated the opening of TriCounty’s new indoor carpet track. While there were challenges, we were able to get through them and complete what I hope, will be a continuously growing hobby in South Florida.
There were some spots still open and a few surprises. Round One began with Corey Record winning Stock Buggy and Daniel Chavez took Mod. Buggy by over ten seconds. Stadium Truck once again, had Bart Collins win Round 1, while Sebastian “Sea Bass” Hazbun won in 4WD Mod. Buggy. Pro 4 Mod. continued the battle between Daniel Paz and Jeff Kranz and Jeff drew frist blood. E Buggy was up next and Bart Collins’s winning ways continued…finishing his trifecta as Bart also won round won of the combined Nitro class.
In round two, Jeff Kranz found his Mojo and earned the TQ point in Stock Buggy. Mod. Buggy witnessed Corey Record move up and spoil that extra point. Then, Corey did it again in Stadium truck by 0.197 over Bart. Daniel Chavez ran his relatively new 4WD Mod. Buggy, while earning the win and point. Finally, Jeff Kranz held on and was the first Round winner and got his point in Pro 4 Mod. Bart Collin’s continued winning ways and got the E Buggy TQ. Bart continued to roll and and in combined Nitro, got his second consecutive TQ.
In the Semi’s, we started with 4WD Mod. Buggy’s “B” main. Sebastian Vasan and Fred Rodriquez earned their seat at the adult’s table. Denis O’Connel and Jose Mato got the Pro 4 Mod. bump-ups. While E buggy finished up setting the “A” Mains with Paul Holness and Loren Kretzschmar moving on up.
It was showtime and the last round of the TRI-TRACK SPRING RUSH. Jeff Kranz got his 101 and locked up the 1st place trophy, Corey Record was in second and third place finisher, Tom Allen was able to maintain enough points to get 2nd Place in the series. Jonathan Hutton worked some late series magic and swiped the 3rd place trophy. Stadium Truck was next, and Bart Collins once again put the stamp on his 1st Place trophy with Corey Record taking second, but third place finisher Jeff Krans locked up the 2nd place trophy. Joshua Alfaro slipped into a fifth place but the points were enough to give him 3rd place overall. Corey Record, Daniel Chavez and Richard Hazbuz took one, two and three in Mod. Buggy, but Bart Collins already earned the 1st place trophy the race before. Daniel Chavez held on to the 2nd place trophy while Loren Kretzschmar came out of nowhere to get 3rd Place and win some tin. In 4WD Mod. Sea Bass won the day with The Hammer taking two and Danile Chavez in three. When the dust settled it was The Hammer, Jonathan Hutton and The Burgermeister (Jack Espinosa) with the point count to earn the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place series finish. Pro 4 Mod. was one of the longest and toughest battles of the series and while Jeff Kranz won the day, second place finisher Daniel Paz already owned the 1st Place trophy for some time. Keep your eyes on these two next time. Jeff had to settle for 2nd in the series while Yamig Torres got third but the 3rd place series award went to The Hammer. Bart Collins won the E Buggy class, another 1st place trophy and to his growing collection. Daniel Paz took second but ended in 3rd in points. Third place Jeff Kranz didn’t qualify for awards, but Michael Mennella did and will get his 3rd place trophy. James Wicker ran so consistent, he took the day off and still earned 1st place in the series in Sportsman Nitro. Paul Holness got 2nd place while Nick Cotugno slid into 3rd. On the Pro Nitro side, Bart Collins’s amazing streak continued with yet another 1st place trophy. Michael Mennella ended up in 2nd and Mike Bellotti won 3rd.
This finish a very long and difficult series; however, it showed the dedication and stamina off all the racers who were involved. This series was conceived to help and create stability in an amazingly lucky area having three off road tracks within twenty minutes of each other. These three facilities has shown their high level of dedication to the South Florida off road racing community. Please support them, it will make us all only stronger. Finally, without our sponsors TriCounty Hobbies, JConcepts, Boca Bearings, Lead Finger Racing LFP, Maxy’s Fuel & Cinco BT, Gens Ace, Tekno RC, Exotek Racing, Venom, AKA, Atomik RC, Speed Demon Hobbies, Ztw Brushless Controls and Big Boss Beef. Many of us would not have had the chance to run against each other and Mills Pond, TriCounty an Coral Springs would have never been able to pull this off. Thank you, and thank you all for your participation.
