"We attended the A-Main Hobbies/Dailed Inc. Offroad Championship race in Shreveport, Louisiana this past weekend. After the 13 hour trip we arrived to a flat, rain soaked area that was once a track and the chance of racing looked slim. But have no fear, the infamous Joey from THE DIRT was on hand and in command of some heavy equipment. By 10PM that night there was a race track and practice was beginning.
Qualifying began on Saturday and the toughest challenge quickly became the track. The sun dried the surface to a moon crater cracked look and what appeared to be an easy layout was truly a mind teaser.
In the Electric classes we had no issues and TQ'ed the e-truggy class and started 3rd in the e-buggy class, which was the largest 1/8 class at the event! Our cars were dialed for the mains and we pulled the win in both the e-truggy and e-buggy class. The Tekin powered Mugens were handling and absorbing the bumps like no other, and the JConcept tires laid down the power to the difficult surface." Barry Pettit
