What a busy weekend! With nearly 250 entries packed into the pit area (and overflow space allotted in the receiving section of the warehouse) at Outback Raceway for the 2012 JConcepts Summer Indoor Nationals, the action inside the warehouse was as hot as the weather outside. For the third year in a row, racers from Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho, and as far as Florida met the fastest Californians on the sticky and tricky Outback clay course for two days of competitive off-road racing.
The big story of the weekend was JConcepts team driver Tanner Denney, who improved his performance from a year ago by taking the Top Qualifying spot in three classes, two of which he went on to win. A Main Hobbies and ProTek R/C team driver Tyler Vik, last year’s Open 2WD Buggy champion, ran off into the sunset in Open 2WD Truck with a dominating performance in both qualifying and the main event. The most crushing win of the weekend, however, came in the Pro 4 Open Short Course class at the hands of Matthew Olson, who was the class of the field in qualifying and smashed the competition by winning the A Main with a one-lap cushion behind the wheel of his prototype MIP Pro4Mance conversion for the Losi TEN-SCTE.
