Three Wins For Associated at JConcepts Indoor Nationals Finale!December 7, 2012
Event Name: JConcepts Indoor National Series
Event Location: New Red Hobbies, Ocala, FL
Event Date(s): November 3, 2012 to November 4, 2012
The finale of the JConcepts Indoor National Series finished in the home state of the title sponsor: Florida. With racers coming from around the area and from across the nation, Team Associated sent Steven Hartson and Brent Thielke out from California to represent the company, along with a crop of team drivers from the East coast including Paul Wynn, Max Flurer, Daimon Borkowicz, Dave Duncan, Jeremy Harris, and Mr. JConcepts himself, Jason Ruona.
From the first laps on the track Steven Hartson was the one to beat with his Factory Team B4.1 and B44.2. Racing the B44.2 for the first time, Hartson was in another league compared to the competition. Setting the 4WD Modified TQ and taking the win in the first two A Mains, no one else came close.
The results were similar in the 2WD Modified class where Steven again TQd and won the first two mains. This time, however, in A2, Steven battled it out for the win with both Brent Thielke and Jason Ruona, with the trio going back and forth swapping positions multiple times. Fans agreed that this was by far the highlight race of the event.
In the 2WD Modified Short Course class it was the Factory Team SC10 of Paul Wynn, equipped with his JConcepts accessories and tires, that was the big winner. P-Dub battled his way to the front to take the hard-fought victory.
Thanks to the New Red Hobbies crew, and JConcepts for the hospitality, and congratulations to all the victors.
