A Main’s Lou Figueria “Ironman” After 600 Mile Trip and Two SC Wins At Two Races

December 18th, 2013

BMiller Racing’s Lou Figueria loves to race his Losi SCTE 2.0, and last weekend that was apparent with a schedule that included a race in Southern California on Saturday and one in Northern California on Sunday. After more than 600 miles traveled over the course of 48 hours, Figueria returned to Sacramento with a pair of victories to show for his efforts.

The race weekend started with the four-hour trek to Bakersfield for the Grand Opening Shootout at Rainman’s Hobby and Raceway. After the two qualifying rounds, Figueria earned the TQ and started at the front of the grid for the six-minute A main. Big Lou dominated the main, leading from start to finish to earn weekend victory number one.

After the award ceremony Figueria left Rainman’s and headed up to the Bay Area to the legendary Nor Cal Hobbies & Raceway in Union City for the annual Toys For Tots Race. Again earning the TQ on Sunday morning, he sat on the pole for the double A mains and did not disappoint, winning both A1and A2 to stand on top of the box in the late afternoon.

So with two victories in as many days in two different parts of the state, Figueria jumped back in his truck for the relatively short drive back to Sacramento to complete his 48-hour RC racing odyssey. But Big Lou won’t be idle for long. After a couple days of work in the real world, he will be right back out there whipping his SCTE 2.0 on the big jumps of a local track somewhere.
