Race Report by Kerry Lemos
It was a great day racing for Xray, RC America and Proline at AMains 2018 Tekin Labor Day Shootout, where I ran two classes: open truggy and open buggy.

In open buggy, I won all three rounds of qualifying and TQd the open buggy class. I started 1st on the grid in the A-main lap. Dante, in second was pushing hard, so I let him by early on and waited for my opportunity. We had some great racing out there and, eventually, I took the lead back and continued to pull away from the pack, thanks to the smooth handling car and very few mistakes. The main was 20 minutes, and by making only one fuel stop, I was able to get a huge lead. My pit crew was amazing as usual. When I had a 16-second lead, Kevin Palmer brought me in for a quick splash of fuel, that took me and my Xray XB8 running Proline HoleShot X3s in for the win!

Race Report by CJ Jelin
This past weekend I attended the 2018 Tekin Labor Day Shootout at Amain. All together there was 114 entires for the one day event.


There was 3 rounds of ifmar qualifying then mains. The ebuggy amain was 9 minutes, nitro truggy amain was 20 minutes, the pro nitro buggy amain was 30 minutes, and the top 3 in the open class was able to run in the pro buggy a main. The first round of qualifying in ebuggy was a good run. I had very little time driving my ebuggy and that hurt me in the beginning because I over jumped and rolled over. I fixed my mistake to tq the first round of ebuggy. Next up was pro nitro buggy. I had one of my best runs of the day. I had no mistakes and that lead me to tq round one of pro nitro buggy. Last class of the round was open nitro truggy. I did the same thing that I did in pro nitro buggy and took the tq for round 1 in all three classes. For round 2 the track was dry and loose so I drove smart in all three cars to get the round 2 tq and the overall in all three classes. For round 3 I didnt drive anything because I was getting my cars ready for the mains.
