This past weekend Round #1 of the Southern Offroad Series was held at Loganville RC Speedway. It was a really rough week leading up to the race with the rain, and it even rained the friday night before the race. Saturday morning the track was soaked, but the track crew and the over 160 people in attendance pulled together to make it happen. We more than a pallet of wood shavings on the track to soak up the water, and delayed the start time to allow it to dry up. By the end of round 1, the track had dried almost completely, and the racing was good.
“After a tough round 1, I was able to get a good round 2 in and take the overall TQ in Pro E-Buggy, so I was starting first in the 10 minute A-main. I was able to take advantage of this and never look back, just running my laps and slowly stretching my lead lap after lap. I would come away with the win, with almost a full lap on the rest of the field. As always, the car was amazing and my Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and T8 Gen2 motor were flawless. The series looks to be shaping up to be full of great competition. Can’t wait for Round 2!” Shay Brand
