There is still one round to go in the LSR Speedway Thursday Night Nats Off-Road Series in Sacramento, Calif., but BMiller Racing’s Lou Figueria and Eddie Bernal have already clinched their respective short course class victories. Figueria has posted three wins and one second-place finish in Pro 4 while Bernal has won each of thefirst four races in Pro 2. The five-race series allows for one drop.
Figueria has been on fire for most of 2012, piloting his Losi SCTE with a ProTek RC 70c lipo battery (www.amainhobbies.com), and the Thursday Night Nats Series has been no different. Running on Panther Switch 2.0 tires in clay compound (www.pantherteam.com) with white Trinidad DE Racing wheels (www.deracing.net), Figueria battled Trever Lund in Round 4 before coming out on top in the latter stages
of the six-minute A main.
Bernal has had his ProTek RC powered (www.amainhobbies.com) Associated SC10 with Viper electronics dialed the entire series, handily winning all four rounds to date, including a wire-to-wire win this past Thursday. Bernal has Panther Switch 2.0 tires in clay compound (www.pantherteam.com) mounted on black Trinidad DE Racing wheels (www.deracing.net). While Bernal checked out in the six-minute main,
the battle for second was a good one with Jeff Lorenzo pulling away from BMiller’s Todd Pearson to finish second.
In Pro Buggy, BMiller Racing’s Justin Moon made the series points tally interesting, earning the TQ and going box-to-wire for the win. Moon, who has his Durango dex210 on clay compound Panther Switch 2.0s (www.pantherteam.com) and DE Racing black Borrego wheels (www.deracing.net) running strong, is third in the class in points just behind BMiller Racing’s Brian Strange and Bernal, who each run Panther
tires, DE Racing rims, and ProTek batteries.
In Sportsman Buggy, BMiller’s Terry Wickum and Pearson continued their class battle, fighting it out down to the wire in the six-minute main with Wickum edging out Pearson by 0.8 seconds.
The LSR Thursday Night Nats Off-Road Series (www.lsrspeedway.com) concludes next Thursday, March 15.
