Great racing action at Evolution Raceway in St. Louis this past weekend! The weather was perfect for the race. As the day progressed the traction continued to climb with multiple exchanges of the TQ spot in both classes. After 4 rounds of qualifying Ted Hammer secured the TQ spot for 1/8th and Ira Schultz TQ'd 1/10th. 40 minute A-mains provided for plenty of racing action and an opportunity for pit strategies to play out. In addition to the race we gave away door prizes and TWO Mugen 50 off sponsorships. Congratulations to 1/10th Jeff Whiting and 1/8th Scott Mcdonald on your hard earned Mugen sponsorships!

We had a great time as usual racing in St Loius. The track was super and the competition was tight. Great job everyone. Too bad I had to beat my daughter to bump up to the A. If she hadn't blown 2nd gear I wouldn't have caught her (as she keeps reminding me). We had a great battle. If you were thinking about making this race and didn't..... don't think next year....just plan to come now.

Default St Louis Was Fun

Thanks to Todd Blumoff, Larry Stone and the entire crew at Evolution for a fun race. The track had good traction, the trophies were great, and warm temperatures in October. What more could we ask for? Looking forward to next year's race.
