This past weekend was the 2018 Proline Shootout, a unique annual spec tire event at Thornhill Racing Circuit. All the fastest in the region were in attendance as well as Adam Drake making the trip from California.
In Open Ebuggy the dual Amain format meant both mains would count making them extremely important. Adam would go 1,1 to take the overall. Jake Dellinger went 3,2 for 2nd, and Tyler Hooks went 3,4 to finish 3rd. Brandon Rose would finish 4th with Quincy Hughes finishing 5th.
In Open Truggy, Adam Drake and Ethan Lefebvre would battle early before Lefebvre would ultimately suffer from a flame out during the first stop. In the end Drake would win with Chris Marrant finishing 2nd, and Lefebvre battling back to finish 3rd. Pablo Tejada would finish 4th with Evan Jones taking 5th.
Finally in Open Buggy, Adam would lead from start to finish with Lefebvre and Rose close behind early, but flameouts for both of them would take them out of the fight. In the end Jake Dellinger and Tyler Hooks would mount late race charges to finish 2nd and 3rd, while Lefebvre would finish 4th and Austin Jeffries would take 5th.
