Rain Schedule Update – Important Notice

TRI-TRACK SPRING RUSH
May 2, 2015 – Race 3
Race 3 was at Broward County RC Speedway A.K.A. Mills Pond. A staple in South Florida RC Racing. This track is designed for 1/8 E Buggies and Nitro and can be daunting for 1/10 classes, especially the 2WD Stock Buggies, but they came, ran and conquered. Race 3 got off to a rocky start, the infamous “Mills Pond Gremlins” were working their mischief with our laptop; however, mild manner, cool as a cucumber, Jessica Iler got all 80 entries signed-up and ready to go with only a 90 minute delay. A true miracle to say the least.
Round 1 started with a slick track as the 2WD Stock Buggy class had a few problems. Tom Allen got the first TQ of the day. Next 2WD Modified Buggy’s with more power and ran like it. Jader Lopez easily took round 1 Top Qualifying in this class while making to look easy. Modified Stadium Truck was up next, the track was still loose, but that didn’t mattered to Jeff Kranz as he took the top spot. In Round one of 4WD Modified Buggy, Gavin Butera took the early lead and kept it all the way through for the win. Pro4 Modified SCT had two full heats of rock em’ sock em’ carnage. After the clean-up and the dust settled. It was Daniel Paz victorious as the Top Qualifier. E Buggy was up next and these guys did everything they could to be dubbed the new “Basher” class. In the end; however, it was Jader Lopez’s who got the TQ. Nitro Sportsman Buggy took the stage and Cesar Souza took the first round. Finally, Nitro Pro Buggy got it’s chance and Luis Perez won with 20 seconds to spare.
Round 2 began as the track started coming around. 2WD Stock Buggy was Tom Allen, A.J. Reynolds and Jared Cooper taking the first three spots into the mains. Tom had just under a 15 second cushion to win the extra point. Modified 2WD Buggy was a bit more exciting as Richard Hazbun came up from his first round fourth place finish, all the way up to taking away TQ from second place Jader Lopez. Ricardo Jordao kept his third place rounding out the top three for the mains. Jeff Kranz, Jared Cooper and Brett Hold captured 1, 2 and 3 in Modified Stadium Truck. 4WD Modified Buggy had some twists and turns with Daniel Chavez coming out on top getting the point and win. Johnathan Hutton was .610 behind and Gavin Butera just less than 3 seconds behind and ended up in third. Daniel Paz, Jeff Kranz and Tony Mazza finished in their starting order after the two SCT heats. Jader Lopez kept his cool and with less than 7 seconds beat Luis Perez for the E Buggy TQ point while Daniel Paz finished third. Sportsman Nitro had a shift as well, with James Wicker getting the point. followed by Nick Cotugno and Cesar Souza maintained his spot from Paul Holness (3rd Place Qualifier 2 finish) to stay in the number 3 spot for the mains. Luis Perez barely beat out Sebastian Hazbun by 3.963 to keep his TQ and point. As Mike Mennella ended up in the third.
Pro4 Modified SCT started the Semi featured mains. Tony Mazza and A.J. Reynolds were 2.777 apart as they both bump up into the “A”. The final Semi was E Buggy as Matt Kirkpatrick and Jonathan Hutton moved up to the show. The Featured Mains began with 2WD Stock Buggy. Tom Allen won and got the 101 by 7.559 seconds over Jeff Kranz as Jared Cooper took the number three spot. Next up, Modified Stadium Truck, Jeff Kranz finally got his 101, Jared Cooper earned a 99 and Mike Honcho 98 was the best of his series. 2wd Modified Buggy had a flip-flop from their starting order with Jader Lopez winning the 100 points and Ricardo Jordao taking second. Top Qualifier Richard Hazbun dropped all the way down to third on a tough finish. Daniel Chavez took the TQ and ended up with 101 points to finally have his first big day of this series. Gavin Butera gave Daniel a great run coming up short by 3.984. Jonathan Hutton ended up in third by 7+ seconds. Pro4 Modified saw Daniel Paz get knocked off by Mr. Big Boss Beef himself, Jeff Kranz. While Daniel seemed sporadic and out of control, he kept coming back again and again. Just missing the mark and sharing 100 points with Jeff by 5.621 seconds. Felipe Rodriguez came in third to get his boost in points as well. Jader Lopez just owned the E Buggy class all day long and did as well for the “A” Main. Luis Perez and Mike Mennella second and third place finishes were separated by 8.259 seconds. Sportsman finished as it started, with James Wicker in the one, Cesar Souza two and Nick Cotugno taking third. Finally, Pro Nitro Buggy started it’s 20 minute main and when the evening closed Luis Perez took the win easily with Sebastian Hazbun placing and Mike Mennella making the show. All in all, a long but fun day spent at an amazing facility.
