Max Flurer and Chris Pace were on hand at all sixces this year in the North Carolina Championship Series to represent Team Associated. Between the two of them, they were able to wrap up three out of four championships they competed in. The races averaged 125 entries, so wins did not come easily with some of the Southeast’s top drivers in attendance.
Max Flurer had the 2WD SCT and Electric 1/8 Buggy classes in total control, with dominating performances throughout the season. Max proved to be the class of the field at each event, taking his wins in convincing fashion. At many events, Max lapped his closest competitor in the 10-minute main events. Max is a great asset to the electric team in the Southeast and looks forward to many more championships with AE.
Chris Pace represented AE in the nitro classes. The nitro classes were a little heavier contested, so this one didn’t come as easy. The Buggy and Truggy class were both up for grabs all the way down the to the final round. After a hard-fought season, Pace took the overall championship in the Truggy class over Losi driver Jason Smith and Hot Bodies driver DJ Hepler. In the Buggy class, it was also a close battle, with Pace taking a respectable second place overall, finishing behind Jason Smith.
It was a great season for Max and Chris and they showed that AE is at the top of the game nationally and regionally. Look for Max and Chris at an event near you in the Southeast!
