   Well the first quarter is over and I only got one 1/8th offroad event in during the quarter. That event however happened to be the psycho nitro blast in Unadilla Georgia. After a very long weekend of racing with almost 600 fellow racers, open buggy started with the D main due to some parts failures in two of three rounds took the third and final bump up spot and bumped to the C main. Started the C main shotgun in the field rolling off in the 19th spot after the first lap I had worked my way up to the eighth position. During my second lap I over jumped the third double in the middle of the track and the throttle linkage popped off ending my chances to get the bump to the B main. Open truggy qualifying went a little better than buggy with three solid rounds putting me in the 4th spot on the grid in the B main. After a good start I found myself second after the first lap, the second trip around the very large track proved to be a challenge as I made a couple of mistakes and found myself back in around 6th place during the rest of the twelve minute race after calming down and settling in a bit I had worked myself back into fourth place fighting for the final transfer spot to the A main caught a pipe coming around to the great wall and lost some time to the third place driver. The race ended with a four second gap from the third place driver and final bump back to me in fourth place giving me an overall finish of 20th place. Overall although the results are not exactly what I wanted it was a fun weekend with a lot of great people.

Sorry for this being a little late but I was in a bad car accident a few weeks ago and it’s been a slow recovery..I did a lot of racing this past winter at a club level and had multiple a main wins in TC and 1/12  pan car… At this years Roar region 2 regionals I was able to TQ In Touring 17.5 and 1/12, I finished 3rd in TC and 4th in 1/12 … I also traveled to the Snowbird Nationals in Orlando Florida where I raced once again in TC 17.5 and 1/12.. TC 17.5 was the biggest class with I believe over 80 entries, I finished 6th overall… In 1/12 I finished mid pack in the B.. Thanks for the support !!

Nathan Chase 1st Quarter Report
My first quarter was great. There weren’t very many races going on so I mostly just club race. Once the Associated b5 and b5m came out i got those and have been figuring out those cars. The first race I went to was the Coyote Hobbies Havasu Aid Race. they held this race to help a track in my area reopen.
I had a great time there last at the Havasu aid race. Grip was pretty good and clay typos where consistent all day. Plus my Novak electronics and Venom batteries had my cars flying around the track. Qualifying went good. In stock buggy I had transponder issues the first round, but came back to set tq in the second round. In mod buggy I had a B-main run the first round and a B-main run the second round. I was on a tq run the second qualifier until I got into lap traffic, but o well.
Mains went much better. I won stock buggy. I lead tone to tone and made zero mistakes; it was on of the most consistent runs I have ever had. I bumped in mod and got 6th in the A. The B-main was a good battle between Rocco Epler, Kevin Kimberly and I that came down to the wire. Props to both you guys for the awesome race. It was awesome going to this race with the Az crew and I can’t wait till our next trip.
   
The next race I went to was the world famous Cactus Classic in Gilbert Arizona. It was great because the track is only 20mins from my house.
   
The Cactus Classic was awesome. I ran four classes, 17.5 buggy, 17.5 Short Course, 13.5 buggy, and 13.5 Stadium truck which was a lot of work but; thanks to my dad I was able to keep up with all four the whole week. Practice went well. It took me a while to get use to the high bite surface but the layout was pretty simple. I felt good going into qualifying. Qualifying went great. I ended up top five in three classes and I bumped from the B Main in 13.5 buggy to start 9th on the grid. I was already starting better than last year and everything was feeling great going into mains. After five nearly back to back mains I ended up 3rd in 13.5 Stadium Truck, 4th in 13.5 Short Course, 4th in 17.5 buggy, and 9th in 13.5 buggy. I had a great week and I’d like to give a huge thanks to my sponsors Novak, Venom, AKA, Bfast RC Performance, Airtronics, Stick it 1 Racing, BocaBearing, and Warehouse3. I can’t wait till next year’s Cactus Classic.
     
I can’t wait to see what the next quarter holds in store. I might get to go to the stock Nationals at OCRC.

I would just like to say thanks for being a sponsor for the RC track I ran on yesterday for the NC SCT Series. I was Zoo City in Asheboro NC. If it wasn’t for sponsors we couldn’t keep tracks open and then I couldn’t race.Thanks again.
