Event Name: JBRL Electric Series - Round #5
Event Location: Controlled Chaos Raceway - Palmdale, CA
Event Date(s): June 30, 2012 to June 30, 2012
This year round #5 of the Electric JBRL was held at Controlled Chaos Raceway in Palmdale, CA. There were 2 rounds of qualifying using the single fastest round with a single main event all run on Saturday. Open practice was on Friday to practice for the event. Surprisingly there were lots racers out to check out the latest outdoor SoCal track. The surface was extremely smooth and very high grip. The layout featured an elevated carpeted drop off in the far corner of the track which challenged all racers. Qualifying was dominated by the Factory Team B4.1 Worlds Edition and Factory Team T4.1 of Steven Hartson. Hartson set the fastest time in both 2wd and Truck Modified with his LRP/Reedy equipped vehicles featuring JConcepts accessories. In the main event it was more Hartson. Starting from pole and never looking back the SoCal native took down the 2011 and 2010 ROAR National Champions in 2wd Modified. A similar story played out in Truck Modified with Hartson gaping the field and cruising home to an easy victory. The next round of the popular JBRL series takes place at SDRC Raceway in San Diego, CA on July 28th.
