MRC SLOT CAR NEWS
The racing today at the last round of the THOR Winter Series was intense to say the least. Many of the class championships were on the line in the Pro and Amateur classes.
Ben absolutely dominated the Spec Racer class with his new RPM Ghost car, Ben had it set on “rocket mode”. Willy took the yellow lane heat race win over Ben, but after that it was the Ben show by putting up 172 total laps to take a dominating class win. With this do or die win he took the Spec Racer championship over Willy by 2 points.
The Super Stock, Modified and NEO classes saw Willy earn the wins in each of those classes. By no means was it an easy task. With these wins today Willy also took those class championships.
This is a shout out to Greg Hutchison who was a contender in all the Pro class championships but had to attend a special event on the same day.
Joseph Adams kept it close in all the races throughout this series earning a few class wins along the way and sinching down 3rd place in all the Pro class championship.
The amateurs got to race this 3 race series with the Pros, some of these racers had moments of great success by beating some of the pro racers.
Steve Stewart had some great races earning the class championship in amateur Super Stock and Modified.
Ralph Bush took the Amateur Spec Racer championship by 2 points over
Ron Crawford. These 3 racers battled it out at every race.
