Fresh off our trip to the Texas State Championships at Mikes Hobby Shop. I'm proud to annouce that Brian Stanton is the new state champ of stock 12th scale. Brian, who hasn't drove a 12th scale that I know of in the last 5 years, bought a kit off the shelf on Thursday. Had it built halfway through practice on Friday and missed TQing the class by under a second after having a marshal run out in front of his car. He won the first two mains in the triple A main format.

Brian also missed the TQ in the highly competitive 19t sedan class due to the same problem as his 12th scale run (ironic). Brian finished a strong 2nd after a 2nd place run in the first main (which he should have won, but the TQ didn't bother with a clean pass), 2nd in the second A-main and a win in the 3rd A.

In the stock sedan class I qualfied 2nd and came home 2nd in the triple A-main format after winning the 2nd main and finishing 2nd to the overall winner in the 3rd main by .9 seconds. The third main by far will go down as one of the races I will never forget. It was a blast. I held him off as long as I could, but in the end he was just the better driver.

Simply amazing.... Dave wheeled like he hasn't in a long while (thats because of car, not skill), didn't let the first main rattle him, and held off someone with ice water in his veins for about 4 min 55 seconds... Great job Dave, you are definately going to win man more state titles.... no worries on this one..

oh yeah forgot to mention the power i had.. I didnt change brushes in my 19t since before my 3rd heat, so I had 5 races and two practice sessions on them... and still pulled the lightspeed guys off the line..

in 1/12 scale, same brushes were in the motor since the 2nd heat race, so 3 heat races and 2 mains... crazy power.. as Dave, it looked like i had overdrive goin down the backstretch...

couldn't make it today

Not great overall though, qualed for the C 80% of the race was fine, but as soon as I knew I was on a good time it all went to rubbish....more practice needed

Sounds like I missed some great racing!

I don't think I watched a offroad race today. I just stared at my car trying to get another tenth out of it lol
