Default Amezcua to Xray!!!

Hey all: Just saw this over on the neobuggy site:
Headline News : Amezcua to XRAY
Posted by Admin on 2012/1/18 17:10:00 (30 reads)

XRAY is excited to announce that multiple USA Nationals and Worlds finalist, Travis Amezcua, is joining the XRAY factory racing team. Sponsored by XRAY USA and RC America, in 2012 Travis will be attending all main national and international events including IFMAR Worlds, ROAR Nations, Dirt Nitro Challenge, Silver State, JBLR Nitro Series as well all regional races in California.
"I am honored to work with one of the most professional and highly-admired RC car companies in the world. My goal is to work as hard as possible both on and off the track to support all XRAY customers and personally to get back on top of the podium.[/i]"

Nice move for Travis and Xray good luck. Any word on the engine/fuel combo he'll use since he was using the ninja engine with mugen? Thanks

I bet he does. CJ Weaver already drives for Xray also and he is running 1/10th Durango.
