Pro-Line Race Report:
This past weekend Adam Drake attended the Grass Roots Racing Series race at Thunder Alley Raceway in Beaumont CA. The event had 145 entries. Thunder Alley will also be host the first round of the JBRL Series in a few weeks. The weather was cool in the morning, but warmed up by mid-day to around 80 degrees. The track was hard packed and very technical.
Drake used Pro-Line M3 Holeshots for both buggy and truck and was the overall TQ in both classes. His TLR 8ight 3.0 powered by the new Nova Rossi Keep Off 4 was on rails all day setting the fastest laps by almost a full second. In the truck final he got a great start and won by two laps. In the buggy final Adam battled with Drew Moller early, but was able to put in clean and consistent laps and had almost a lap lead with 5 minutes to go when he had a steering servo problem. Drake was and to keep it on the track and limp it around for the final 5 minutes and finish second behind Drew Moller. Cody Smith finished third to make it a Pro-Line 1,2,3 on the podium.
