Wounded Warriors Charity Race at Daytona Strickland RC Park
May 18, 2014 at 10:24pm
We headed out to Daytona Stricklands RC Park for the Wounded Warriors Charity Race. With over 150 entries it was a great turn out for the event. Allen had decided he wanted to run 2wd Buggy Stock and E-Buggy. With track conditions we decided to try out the VP Strickers and Turbo Trax on the rear for the 2wd buggy and Square Ribs on front. The Strickers seemed to work well for him. The only problem he had from keeping him from the front all day was his ball cups kept popping off in both qualifiers. In the main he started 2nd to last and was doing good until got involved in a small pile up. Even with doing all that in the main he finished 8th in the main.
E-buggy we ran VP Gripz and they were holding up really good too on the track. That was the biggest class of the day with about 40 entries I think. In the 1st qualifier Allens right rear tire came off with only a few laps left. In 2nd qualifier Allen finished 7th. Track was kinda slick and took a bit for him to get use to. By Mains Allen had only made it to the D-main with the wheel coming off in the 1st qual and finishing 7th in 2nd qual. Well again he was doing well in his main and getting up there and then coming around the turn for the front stretch he broke his rear pin that holds the hex on for the rim and tire comes off again ending his race early. Hoping for better results next race. Over all we had alot of fun at this race with alot of great people for and awesome charity. Thanks Daytona Strickland RC Park for the event and also thanks to VP Pro USA, North Florida Hobbies, D&R Racing & Chassis and Sparkle N Shine Detail.
