With the first round of the Supercup only 6 days away and Florida experiencing heavy amounts of non-stop rain storms, the race directors decided to move the race indoors to SCRC. Most racers traveling to the race were now concerned that this layout, being the same layout the local racers have been running for months now, would give them a pretty big advantage.
Zack arrived Friday afternoon for practice and dialed in is car as best as possible. He had me send down more M3 ions with a local racer here that was leaving Saturday morning, since he decided this was the fastest tire for his 2wd buggy and the track conditions.
Saturday, in round one of mod buggy, Zack had a great run, placing him 4th overall for the round. The race had 200 entries, around 40 mod drivers and mod buggy was pretty stacked.
Top 5 round one:
Billy Easton, Jason Rouna, Paul Wynn, Zack Genova, JR Mitch

Round 2 was a wash, as the car was hard to drive, later finding out that the motor plate had come loose. Putting him 9th overall he had to race the B main, in which he checked out for the win and the bump.
The main would see a buggy stuff a pipe and collect Zack, but he managed to battle back to mid pack, then another pile up would put him back to 8th.
