Default Billy Easton@the nitrocross

Hey all: Was looking at the '09 nitrocross finishing order on neobuggy and it was nice to see billy easton's name on the truggy list. There's a few things about him i'd like to know. First he is involved with a-main hobbies,but is it sponsor only or does he actualy work for them. Also is he still with serpent racing and why has the rumored serpent 1/8th buggy been taking so long. Finally he like many other drivers has switched over from electric on road to nitro off road is it because you don't have the constant change over with nitro engine size and type like you do with electric motors/batteries? Thanks for the info

I believe Billy started his career in off-road. Former IFMAR 2wd champ, I know he won Silver State in 2002 or 03...etc

From what i've seen and heard he is kinda priviteering it, supporting Amain, Proline and RB?? but no chassis sponsors
