As the summer months are winding down, midwest racers are beginning to hang up the 1/8 scales and prepare for the 1/10 scale winter season. Fastlane Raceway in Blue Springs, Missouri hosted the Awesome August 2014 event this past weekend, providing racers one final 1/8 scale race before turning their focus to the upcoming ROAR 1/10 Region 8 Championships later this month.
The largest class of the weekend was the 1/8 E-Buggy class. Tekin’s Mike Garrison would take the overall TQ spot in qualifying, and carried on to win the E-Buggy final from start to finish with his Tekin Rx8 Gen2 1900 T8 Gen2 TLR 8ight E 3.0 buggy! Local racers Marc Moody and Sam Reed would finish out the podium, and put a close to an ‘Awesome August’ of 1/8 scale racing.
