November 16 – 17

Early Friday morning we headed down to Coral Springs for the final round of the JC Supercup, riding with Team Lewis. After the 5 1/2 hour drive, we arrived, set up our pits and got ready for practice. Zack ran 2 packs in his buggy and the sky opened up, ending practice early. With not much else to do for the day, we went to do some indoor go cart racing.
Saturday qualifying was held up as the track crew prepped the track and worked on getting rid of all the standing water. Zack TQ’ed mod truck by 2 laps and ran a 2nd overall in 2wd. A bit of bad luck in 4wd, a broken front a-arm in the round kept him out of the top 10.
With various technical issues, round one took half the day, and the decision to go straight into the mains was made. The track crew had to dig up a portion of the track and install a new timing loop. So cars were prepped for the main and we hung out and chilled for a while.
The Sun stayed out most of the day during qualifying, and the track started to come along nice. A little slick, but much dryer. It took a handful of throttle control to kick off fast, consistent laps.
First up was the 4wd B main, Zack started in the rear and moved up to take the win and bump into the A main. In the Main, starting towards the rear, Zack managed to move up to take 3rd, which also secured the points for the overall series win.
Next up was Mod Truck, starting on the pole, Zack got a great start and led to the tone.
Finally Mod Buggy was up, early in the race Zack moved up to 1st and held it to the tone.
We traveled with Brian and Landen Lewis on this trip, and Landen won Stock Buggy, Great Job Landen. I made my first Supercup A Main, and put my Novak Powered Kyosho RB5 on the podium in 2nd place.
