This past weekend hosted the 2015 Race On The Rug event at the R/C Complex in Bolivar, Missouri. The facility recently decided to remove their dirt offroad track, and replace it with a European style carpet offroad track. Winter weather and icy roads unfortunately struck the area leading up to the race.
The Mod 4wd Buggy class was a bit light in attendance, but still offered some close racing and blistering fast speeds for the spectators to enjoy. Tekin’s Mike Garrison managed to capture TQ in qualifying with the only 18-lap run in the class. As the A-Final got underway, it was a back and forth battle in the early laps between Garrison and Intech’s Dave Ferrell. After a slight mistake by Ferrell following close in 2nd, Garrison was able to stretch out his lead and cruise to victory!
Mike says, “I was skeptical of the idea of racing offroad on carpet, but after this weekend I must admit it was definitely a good time! Thank you to Tekin, TLR, Horizon Hobby, Spektrum, JConcepts, Venom RC, RDRP, and Moto1 Paint for making it all possible!”
