Matt Schreffler was on a mission in qualifying. Matt used his 22 buggy to set the fastest time in round 1 and take the overall TQ, leading A-Main 6 qualifiers with TLR 22’s! When the tone went off for the main, Schreffler would have a slight bobble give the lead to Matt Castellano. Frank moved his was up to 3rd and had a good battle with Schreffler, and would eventually take 2nd, but the race belonged to Matt Castellano who took the win! The TLR 22 swept the Top 5 finishing positions, Castellano, Root, Schreffler, Lane, and Dunford!!
PRO 4 SHORT COURSE
Aaron Lane would rocket to the solid TQ, with Doug Nielsen in 2nd and Ryan Dunford in 3rd. Throughout the race, the 3 Ten-SCTEs would have a very close battle.

Dunford finished 2nd, and Nielsen 3rd and the Losi Ten-SCTE swept the podium again!
PRO 2 SHORT COURSE
Cody Turner started 2nd and Frank started 8th for the 6-minute A-Main. Frank quickly moved through the field passing several cars on the first few laps to move into 3rd behind Turner. Frank was able to get past Cody for 2nd, then chase down the leader. After a few minutes of close racing, Frank stuck a pass at the end of the straight to take to lead for good and would claim the A-Main victory!
