Ogden Takes Double Win at Force Series Round #2 running Advantage Ceramic Bearings

Force Series Round #2 at Phil Hurd in Savannah, GA!

Lance MacDonald ran a great race program this past weekend. Just shy of 250 entries, and we started at 8am….finished at 11:40pm. Pretty impressive I must say, we all appreciate the fast paced race day, and look forward to more.

As for the track surface, let’s just say it was high traction. Bobby, Jeff and the whole PHR Crew did a fantastic job on the track and keeping it up during the event!

Advantage Driver Evan Vail takes 2nd in Expert Truggy at Dirt Nitro Challenge

Last week I attended The Dirt Nitro Challenge in Phoenix, AZ for the first time!! The race is like no other and the track itself was one of the craziest and most fun layouts I’ve driven on. Racing for me would start out rough as I would have electrical issues in practice causing me to only get one solid run before going into qualifying. However, over the next few days I was able to put decent qualifying runs together placing myself 3rd on the grid in both Expert mains. My Werks powered Team Associated truggy was awesome going into the main on Saturday and I was able to work my way up to the second spot by the end of the thirty minute race! My buggy was even better on Sunday but I wasn’t able to capitalize. I made a few mistakes in the beginning and would soon have to pull off early due to a mechanical issue. I still had an awesome time and look forward to returning next year!! It was a great learning experience pitting with Team Associated for the first time and I will definitely put their teaching and advice to use. Thank you to all of my sponsors and friends who support me along the way!!!
