South Florida Off Road Championship Series II Points Tabulation Race 4
*A Main E Buggy Race Expanded Version Placement is not Correct – J. Lopez Won with 24 Laps
Race 4 of the South Florida Off Road Championship Series II had some of the best racing of this series. The track was fast with unbelievable traction. 2WD Stock Buggy was again packed with thirteen entries. Chris Intravia grabbed the early win. 2WD Mod. Buggy was up next with Jader Lopez taking the win. 4WD Mod. Buggy had Daniel Paz barely beating Corey Record by 1.173 seconds. 13.5 4WD Buggy brought Jeff Kranz his first win of the day. Daniel Paz took another first round win in Pro 4 Mod. SCT. The largest class, E Buggy had Jader Lopez winning the first round qualifier by 23.584. Luis Perez was victorious in Nitro Buggy bringing round 1 to an end.
Round 2 began with the first TQ point being awarded to Chris Intravia. Chris did a masterful job of winning both qualifiers and earning the pole position in the 2WD Stock Buggy A Main. 2WD Mod Buggy was very much like Stock. Round 1 winner Jader Lopez kept his position and earned the TQ point. Corey Record won the extra point and pole spot in 4WD Mod Buggy. Jeff Kranz stayed on top in 13.5 4WD Buggy making him the guy to beat in the A Main. Daniel Paz ran his Pro 4 Mod SCT more like the leader of the “short bus” class, but he did well enough in the first qualifier to keep the TQ point and top spot. Jader Lopez continued his E Buggy domination and was well on his way to another 101. John Bertelsen had a great heat in Nitro giving him the TQ point and pole position for the final A Main.
We started the Semi Mains with the E Buggy C Main and surprising entry Bart Collins easily took it with Pedro Agosto getting the bump to the B Main. The first B Main was 2WD Stock Buggy a close race between the top three but in the end Tristan Santiso and Carlos Gimenez went up to the Featured Main. Jack Espinosa and Jonathan Hutton easily lead the pack in the 4WD Mod Buggy B Main and got the bump. Shaun Quiros just keeps improving and is quickly becoming a force in the Pro 4 Mod SCT class. Shaun along with Laz Vega moved up into the A Main. Once again Bart Collins took the top spot with Loren Kretzschmar as they both moved up the the A Main in highly competitive E Buggy class.
The Featured Mains got underway with 2WD Stock Buggy, Chris Intravia beat Jeff Kranz by just 5.687 while surprisingly rising young racer Joshua Alfaro got the three. Corey Record surprised TQ Jader Lopez with some great driving. Promising some awesome future battles to come. Jeff Kranz got the third spot in the “Gentleman’s RC Racing Class” 2WD Mod. Buggy. In 13.5 4WD Buggy TQ Jeff Kranz ran a really bad lap, giving the top three away to David Iler, Matt Kirkpatrick and Tom Allen in that order. This was one of the best races seen in Coral Springs in a long time. With four lead changes throughout the race Jader Lopez and Corey Recorded both fought like champions. All the other racers were amazing allowing these two drivers to hold the dazzling spectacle we all witnessed. On the very last lap Corey got hung up giving Jader the edge and win. They ended up spitting the 100 points as Daniel Paz crossed in third. Pro 4 Mod. SCT was another solid race as Daniel Paz got his win virtually locking up the first place trophy with another 101. Second place Scott Delfino was only behind by 4.313 as more and more racers closed in on Paz’s SCT dominance. “Burger Meister” Jack Espinosa ended in third as his racing improvement is only matched by his grilled burger culinary skills. The C and B Main winner Bart Collins decided he needed the trifecta taking the A Main. 3.133 behind him, Chris Intravia didn’t make it easy though as Mike Mennella earned the third spot and points. In the final of the growing Nitro class Bart Collins once again first with Mike Mennella second and Luis Perez in third.
A lot of great racing as the racers start crunching the numbers because this is where every point now really matters. Some classes already have winners, but others are still wide open. With plenty of racing left, racers are jockeying for spots to break into the top three. There will be spoilers – anything can happen. These last two races will make or break those who live on the edge. Best of luck! Drive smart, considerate and give it your best!
