Paul, Daimon, and AJ Strike First at the JConcepts Super CupAugust 10, 2016
Event Name: JConcepts Super Cup (round 1, fall session)
Event Location: NewRed Hobbies, Ocala,FL
Event Date(s): August 6, 2016 to August 6, 2016
The 2016 JConcepts Super Cup Series kicked off its fall session last weekend at NewRed Hobbies indoor facility located in Ocala, Florida. NewRed Hobbies has a very unique surface, as they were one of the first tracks in the country to start using "Soiltac" exclusively. The glued surface makes the tire choice very simple as everyone runs slicks -- JConcepts Smoothies for most.
With 225 entries, race director Lance MacDonald got qualifying rolling promptly at 9:30am. Qualifying was highly contested throughout the two rounds, but it's in the main events where the points are claimed. Team Associated's AJ Marasco took his B6D with laydown transmission from the TQ position to a wire-to-wire victory in the highly contested Expert Stock 17.5 Buggy class. Modified 2WD Buggy saw Team Associated/Reedy Powered driver Paul Wynn take his B6D with laydown transmission to the top spot on the podium while his teammate Daimon Borkowicz finished third overall with his B6D. Team Associated/Reedy Powered driver Daimon Borkowicz put in a flawless wire-to-wire win from his TQ spot in the insanely fast 4WD Modified Buggy class.
Thanks to JConcepts for an amazing series and NewRed Hobbies for hosting a fantastic event.
