Event Date(s): August 17, 2013 to August 17, 2013
The 6th round of the Jimmy Babcock Racing League Electric Series made its first stop at the new Rainman's Hobby and Raceway in Bakersfield, California. With every new facility comes the challenge of learning the surface and dialing in the vehicles. So Team Associated racers Kody Numedahl, Kevin Motter, Nick Wautlet, Jimmy Barnett and others all made the trip north of the L.A. valley to compete at the brand new facility.
In the 2WD Modified class it was all Numedahl and his B4.2 Factory Team with Centro mid-motor conversion. Powered by a Reedy Sonic Mach2 7.5-turn motor and Reedy #310 battery, Numedahl dominated the competition, taking the TQ by seven seconds and winning the main by half a lap.
In the Truck Modified class, Kevin Motter and his T4.2 Factory Team got out to a good start and took over the lead early, never to relinquish the #1 position on way to the victory. Motter used a Reedy Sonic Mach2 7.5-turn motor and Reedy #309 battery.
In the 2WD Buggy Super Stock class, Nick Wautlet started from the second grid position, but made quick work to take over the lead on the way to victory. Nick used a Reedy Sonic Mach2 13.5-turn motor and Reedy #306 battery.
All in all, the event was well attended with 230 entries and racing throughout a perfect Saturday afternoon. Congratulations to Kody, Kevin, and Nick on their victories. Next up is round #7 at Palm Desert R/C Raceway the weekend of September 14.
