April Fools Classic: 2WD Buggy & Truck Wins for Associated, TLR Takes 4WD Buggy

The 2016 April Fools Classic is completed with Team Associated’s Robbie Gillespie Jr. TQ’ing all three of the premiere classes of modified truck, buggy and 4WD buggy and nearly had the perfect weekend. But, in spite of winning truck and buggy in the first a-mains to lock down the wins from up front, it was TLR’s Dustin Evans who put down an amazing show of patience by winning the first main in 4WD, then literally jumping over Gillespie when he collided with a lapped car that had crashed. It was an amazing display of improvising a race line and shocked all by besting Gillespie who everyone thought would go unchallenged. It was only fitting to have such drama and excitement at such a great traditional race that combines the high level racing of a big event with home-style hospitality and with over 42 heat completed in qualifying, looks to may be the biggest race in America as it grows from year to year.
