We had a little surprise at one of the local tracks here in So Cal last night during the Hot Rod “Tuesday Night Nationals.” Hot R0ds attracts a wide collection of pro RC drivers on a weekly basis, with Chad Bradley and Jeremy Kortz racing regularly…but last night’s club race was quite unusual.
Last night’s buggy class featured a few non-regular pro’s, including JQ’s Joseph Quagraine (the Euro racer who was in town following the Gas Champs race at Thunder Alley last weekend), Kyosho’s Collin Herzig, Z-Car’s and 2002 IFMAR World Champion Greg Degani, the infamous Tim “It’s Just A Part Number” Long, and several others.
Just goes to show you, you never know who will show up at a local So Cal club race. The odds of rubbing elbows with a National or IFMAR champion are good, and on nights like last night, you may even race with a company owner and Euro star.
JQ managed to TQ and then win the 20-minute Main. Good to see you, JQ and come back again soon.
