Congratulations to our own Maxy Velazco 2009 Capitol Classic Champion on the 1/8th scale masters class.
Here is a brief report on his words:
"Well this past week was held in 301 raceway in Maryland the 2009 Capitol Classic in a week full of emotions, race emotions that is. the practice days went smoothly and i was able to set up my car up so it was perfect for the qualifying rounds.
From the beginning of the qualifiers i was battling for the TQ with Joaquin De Soto every round until in the last round of qualifying with one turn to go i tangled with a lapped car losing the TQ pace that i was running on and finally qualifying in the second place.
Then we went back on the track on Sunday and i noticed that the car was better than ever the conditions seemed to be perfect for ma way of racing shortly after the start tone i took the lead from Joaquin and started to pull away, by the end of the first lap i was half of the straightaway in front of the second place but then i had a close encounter with the wall moving my rear body post out of place but i just got myself together and kept driving noticing that the car wasn't the same ( later it was discovered that the rear sway bar had broken due to the accident ) but after my pit man fixed my body on my first fuel stop i just kept driving it and managed to regain the lead wich took me to winning the 2009 Capitol Classic.
My car and radio system worked perfectly through out the whole week helping me to pull off what appeared to be an impossible victory. I want to thank my sponsors Futaba, Serpent, Maxy's Fuel, RC America and Matrix Tires who made it posiible for me to grab the win.
