The race weekend started off with controlled practice Friday. After getting used to the track and making a few changes to both cars most drivers felt confident going into qualifying day. Three rounds of qual points style qualifying on Saturday. In 2wd Mod Buggy Tekin factory pilot Brett Kingsbury had a top 3 car but ended up 5th after a few mistakes. In 4wd Mod Buggy Bretty would redeem himself Tq'ing all three rounds of qualifying followed closely by several fast Florida drivers.
In 2wd Mod Buggy Brett would have a few mechanical issues(ball cup) in two mains which hurt his chances of a podium position. Moving onto 4wd Mod Buggy Bretty would take the win in the first main, and take a 2nd in A2. With the top 2 drivers both having a win and a 2nd, it would come down to A3. Early on in the race Brett dropped down to 3rd place after a mistake. Knowing he had a 6 minute main he would stay composed and knock down some fast laps to regain the lead at the 2 minute mark to take the win by a close .2 sec!
Brett chose a Tekin Gen 2 7.5 4wd buggy and RS Pro. For 2wd buggy Brett chose a Tekin Gen 2 8.5 and RS Esc.
