Billy Easton Sweeps Silver State MARCH 2002

Billy Easton picked up two major wins at the Silver State Championships. Easton took the TQ in the 1/10-Scale Nitro Truck Class with his Associated RC10GT, and went on to win the 45-minute A-Main with a cushy 2-lap lead over 2nd-place finisher Richard Saxton. Easton and his Thunder Tiger EB-4 S2 qualified third in the highly competitive 1/8-Scale Buggy Class behind Kyosho drivers Greg Degani and Richard Saxton, who qualified in first and second respectively. It was a battle between these three drivers in the main, but after 45-minutes of door-to-door racing, Easton crossed the line with the win. Looks like Billy Easton is going to be the man to beat at the ROAR Off-Road Fuel Nats this summer we’ll be there to catch the action.

ROAR On-road Nats: Hara takes Mod, Francis wins 19-turn, Ellis captures Stock

Speedline Hobbies, Largo, FL: Atsushi Hara absolutely dominated the Modified class and even lapped the entire field in every qualifier and in both of the Mains to take the championship. With a win in 19-turn, Team Losi’s Matt Francis showed he still has what it takes as he enters his self-proclaimed last season of racing. Drew Ellis of Team XRAY/RC America earned his first National championship with a win in Stock Touring. Mike Lufaso won the 1/12-scale Modified class to give LRP/Reedy a second National title using brushless power—a feat yet to be matched.
