The JBRL Electric series now in it’s 9th season, travelling to tracks all over the west coast, attendance at record highs, and some of the most fun tight and competitive racing around, it’s no surprise the racers enjoy this series every year. Tekin factory driver Rudy Rico managed to have a stellar 2015 JBRL Electric series taking 3 overall titles! Rudy chose the award winning Tekin Rx8 Gen2 ESC and Pro4 HD motor to power his Tekno 4wd SC truck to victory. In his 4wd buggy the Tekin RSX ESC and Redline Gen2 motor was his weapon of choice. In E-buggy it’s no surprise that once again the venerable Tekin Rx8 Gen2 ESC and T8 Gen2 1900 motor would power him to another overall win(same choice as Adam Drake in the Nitro Series).

Boots and Tekin win Maritime Racing World Cup!

Elliott Boots would take the overall Tq position after 4 rounds of qualifying. Battling with Tekin teammate Ellis Stafford as well as Lee Martin for the win, the semi final mains would be heated to say the least. Boots running the latest Tekin Gen3 motors along with the Tekin RSX ESC would provide him with all the power he needed without fade allowing him to pace Martin in the finals and force a mistake to take the overall win at the Off-Road Wars held at Maritime. Ellis Stafford would take P3 overall also running the latest Tekin Gen3 Motor and RSX ESC.

Tekin wins the North Vs South Shootout!

The 2016 edition of the annual event that brings racers from all over Oklahoma & Texas together to decide who will walk away the winner between the north & south. Practice kicked off early afternoon as the sun was still beating down on the track that yielded very little traction to lay down fast laps. This is normal for Battleground though, so everyone is just getting a feel for their cars adjusting for what is to come when the sun goes down. Although the track was dry slick, it started to take a little rubber before the races even got kicked off. This even featured Midwest Modifieds, ODRA SC Modifieds, Open Sprint Cars, Latemodels, & 4wd latemodels.

The open electric sprint had about 40 entries meaning qualifying was going to be important as there are only 2 rounds and a re-sort after the first round. Tekin powered Brian Stanton was in the last heat of Open Sprints and had a fairly smooth run with only a few issues lapping cars. His RSX/7.5 Gen 2 powered Custom Works Outlaw 3 was hooked up and drove to the first round TQ position. The second round was indeed faster, as expected. The second heat race already had someone claiming new TQ honors. Making use of all the grip, Stanton put the RSX/Gen2 power down, only having an issue with two lap cars all run, but it wasn’t enough to reclaim TQ as Tekin teammate Nathan Dean had an amazing run as well to claim the pole for the A-Main with me rolling off behind him in 2nd place.

2016 North South Podium

The main events had started after full darkness had set in. The track was really holding moisture and the clay was yielding some very fast lap times with tons of grip. At the start, Nathan and Brian were able to clear real estate from 3rd place quickly. A small bobble on Stanton’s part allowed Dean to stretch a lead on me, but a tangle with lap cars pulled Stanton right back on his bumper. For a few laps the two teammates were within a few feet of each other until Dean was able to navigate lap traffic a little quicker than Stanton could. In the end, Nathan Dean took the win, Brian Stanton was second, and Andrew Dean rounded out the podium for Open Sprints. This was a repeat of our finish last year, going 1-2 again in the A main.

All three drivers chose the Tekin RSX ESC and Redline Gen2 7.5 T motor.

10.5 Midwest Mod had the most entries of the weekend and the field was very close with the top 20 cars being within 8 seconds of each other. It was Tekin driver Nathan Dean taking TQ and the win followed by David Alford and Steve Eaves taking 3rd, Steve was so running Tekin motors and speed controls.

Steve Eaves was also able to win Mod Late Model running all Tekin products. He did a great job and his car was a rocket all weekend.
