Phil Atondo Dominates the BRP Epic Freeze !

This past weekend B.R.P. in Lakeport CA which is near the Northwestern coastline held their first Annual Epic Freeze. It's called the Epic Freeze for a good reason as it's outdoor with the track under a cover and in the mornings it was 20-28 degrees out! The event was a blast and track was awesome with a very technical layout and high bite on smoothie tires. Tire of choice for this event were Panther Slicks in clay compound. TLR's Phillip Atondo showed for the event and a lot of fast racers from the Nor-Cal area. Atondo TQ'ed and won the first 2 A mains in exp 2wd mod buggy with his Tekin powered TLR 22 with a Redline 8.5 and also went on to win the first 2 A mains with his Tekin Rx8 Pro 4 powered Losi Ten-SCTE which were all powered by Xcelorin batteries riding on Panther Tires.

Mike Malott wins the inaugural JCP Indoor New Years Clash!

The new JCP Indoor track in Indianapolis, IN played host the the new years cash race. It was the biggest turnout of the year so far and the competition was stacked in all of the classes.

"Going into the 2nd qualifier I got off to a good start and everyone had finally settled down. I was out front on a blistering pace having a really good run. I ended up bumping the TQ pace up a full lap and setting overall TQ for the first 2 rounds. In the 3rd round they did a re-sort and the a main qual was really good. I was once again out front setting a very fast pace and was able to bump my TQ time up a few more seconds and take the overall TQ for the day.

The main started and I jumped out to and early lead right from the start. The 2nd and 3rd guys were battling and it allowed me to pull away and build a comfortable lead. I was out front and starting to pull away when I cased the triple jump and the truck flew off the track. I dropped about 8 seconds in that 1 lap and allowed 2nd to close the gap. We had a good little battle going for a few laps and he made a mistake and allowed me to get away again. I cruised the last 2 minutes to victory with my Tekin Rx8 Pro 4 Powered Hyper 10sc!"
