Croatian Championship -- Round 5
Track: Miniautodrom Ayrton Senna, Zagreb

The outdoor temperature this weekend was very high. Around 35 degrees. Track was on 60+ degrees. I was working very hard during the Summer delay and I have been testing my car on few tracks and found good set-up for this race. Me and my father hit the track in the early morning. At 10 o'clock started 1st round of qualifications. Track was perfect hot and my car was like a train on railway. I was 2nd after 3 rounds of qualis and that meant that I will start as 2nd in the finals.

In the 1st final run after a few corners my front left shock blend the oil out and I must stopped my car and go in the pits. 2nd final run was very clean for me and I finished 2nd. 3rd final run was very tensely. I have been driving 5 minutes behind first one and space between us was 1 meter and less. After 5 minutes I pushed harder and few seconds before the end my car drifted and I lost 2 seconds but it was my best race at this track in my life. I finished third. My XRAY was working perfect all the weekend. Next time I will be stronger and more consistent. In 3 weeks is race at my hometrack in Krapina. I hope for the best. Fingers crossed.

A lot of thanks to my sponsor Boca Bearing company.

We had a moderate turnout of 25 entries in (4) classes (which ultimately ended with 3 classes due to attrition).

Race day was hot but the fellowship was outstanding.  This was a race where we were totally self-sufficient, in that we planned it, ran it, announced it, directed it and scored it!

We raffled off a bunch of Boca Bearing swag to some rather happy racers.  All of the folks who race at our track love getting Boca swag and prizes.

(6) winners won (7) prizes.  We gave out two hats, two shirts, two $50 gift certificates and a pit banner.  Needless to say, it was a good day, especially for the winners.

Thanks for the continued support!

Thank you so much for your sponsorship of the 2015 Hot August Showdown, hosted by the Kootenai RC Racers in Libby, MT.  The donations and support provided helped make this event our best-attended Hot August Showdown.  We had approximately 20 drivers in this year's series, with solid showing in the 1/10th scale, 2WD Short Course Truck class and an increase in our 1/10th scale, 4WD Short Course Truck class. Given the momentum the club has had over the past year, we are expanding into 1/10th scale, 2WD buggy class next season!

The goal of last year's racing and fundraising was to procure a timing system for our track, Snowshoe Speedway.  We quickly met that goal, and was able to get a system in place to take over timing duties from tired members who were tracking things via paper and pen.  The addition of the system was immediately noticed in our ability to move through quals and mains and the drivers are now able to focus on racing and not having to worry about if someone miscounted.  This year's goal for racing and fundraising is to get a new drivers' stand built and funds in place for track rework.  Your donations and support directly made a positive impact on our abilities to accomplish both, as we are starting to get designs in place for our drivers' stand and materials gathered for Spring 2016 track rework.

This year's Hot August Showdown wasn't without its share of issues to overcome.  The weather here in northwestern Montana has been very hot and very dry.  The start of the series had drivers competing in temps between 90F and 100F.  As the series progressed, the weather -- while still a factor -- took a back seat to the risk of fires.  We took extra caution around the track to ensure that we wouldn't spark off a fire.  The week between Race 4 and the Finals, the area surrounding Libby broke out into fire.  One fire directly threatened our track and many area homes, so as the time for the Finals approached, we were waiting to see if the track area would have to be evacuated.  Thankfully, on the day of the finals, the clouds and rain rolled in and we were able to race!  Drivers who were normally set up for dry/dusty conditions were now facing a slick, muddy track!  All-in-all, it made for some fantastic racing, great memories, and helped us build up our club.

Finishers for our 1/10th scale, 2WD Short Course Truck class were:

1st:  Jerad Fuhlendorf
2nd:  Steve Scheer
3rd:  Ken Peterson
4th:  Byron Sanderson
5th:  Troy Douthit
6th:  Russell Clark
Hard Luck:  Ken Peterson
Most Improved Driver:  Russell Clark

Finishers for our 1/10th scale, 4WD Short Course Truck class were:

1st:  Byron Sanderson
2nd:  Jason Clark
3rd:  Troy Douthit

Attached is a thank you poster for the event, as well, you can find updated photos and information on the Hot August Showdown race series as well as our club on our Facebook page:

We have several GB of photos and videos to process through still, so photos and videos of the Hot August Showdown will be coming soon to our Facebook page.

I look forward to working with you next year for our 2016 Hot August Showdown event.

ILER RACING -- August 2015 Race Report
David Iler #27

August 1, 2015
JConcepts SuperCup Series -- Round 1
Newred Hobbies -- Ocala, FL
 
It was a last minute decision to make the day trip to Newred Hobbies for the JConcepts SuperCup  race. We were on the road by 3:43 AM. The trip took us around 3 hours 45 minutes. This was our first time at this track. It had ridiculous traction where you use slick tires. As soon as we arrived we grabbed our 4wd buggies out of our van and rushed to the drivers stand to get in some practice laps before we even set up our pits.
 
It was a great turnout with 187 entries making up 24 heats. We were able to get through the first 9 heats before a huge storm hit. David and Matt held on tight to our tent outside so it would not blow away. The water was coming up fast and our shoes and socks were drenched. We rushed to cover up our cars with towels as drips of rain where coming through our tent roof. They ended up having to delay the qualifiers even though the track was indoors since rain was coming through the roof onto the track. When the rain let up some we moved our pits to an outside covered section.
 
Once they dried the track the qualifiers continued. Since it was getting late in the afternoon we knew it was going to be a late night for the Mains. We knew we had about a four hour drive home so we made the decision to race the first qualifier and start the trip home.  Sad that we could not finish we still had lots of fun. We will defiantly be back when we have no obligations to get back home by a certain time.

Village Raceway -- Royal Palm Beach, FL
On-road Club Race

Today we thought we would try out some on-road racing for the first time. David had bought a used 17.5 Touring car. He ended up qualifying 7th making the A-Main which was very impressive for his first time on an on-road track. I had run my 4wd 13.5 buggy in the Off-Road class. It was super fun as the class was made up of a 4wd SCT, a 2wd Stadium Truck and 13.5 buggies. Unfortunately, our day ended early again as a storm hit right when the Mains started where we could not continue.  We are both looking forward to doing some more on-road racing.

Coral Springs RC -- Coral Springs, FL
Club Race
 
David and I each got a 2wd Losi Buggy and decided to try them out today at Coral Springs. It only took me 2 ½ years, but I finally beat David in a race. I know it was just a qualifier, but to me that was an accomplishment. The excitement didn't last long for me as David came back during the second qualifier and Main to beat me once again. I got a taste of victory today so he better look out.  It was a super fun day for the both of us. Now to get ready for Wicked Weekend in Georgia.

Battle at the Beach -- Round 3
Beachline Raceway -- Cocoa Beach, FL
 
We headed to Beachline Raceway today for round 3 of the Battle at the Beach point series. We were also celebrating Kiarra's 10th birthday and were one of the lucky ones to be invited to pit in the upstairs AC room. Kiara’s mom had the room decorated racing style and made sure there were cupcakes for everyone. YUMMY!
 
The competition was fierce as everyone was trying to get as many points as they could for the series. David had a good run with his 13.5 buggy placing him 5th for the day, but struggled some with his 2wd Stock Truck. He was able to come back in the B-Main and get the bump where he finished 8th.  During practice I had issues with my 13.5 buggy. It seemed to be binding up somewhere. Come to find out I had blown out one of my bearings so it was not moving freely. The car felt a lot better after fixing it, but I still did not do as well as I had wished and only made it to the B-Main. I also raced my 2wd SCT which is always fun since the guys who race this class are normally really nice and friendly.

Beachline Raceway -- Cocoa Beach, FL
Club Race

We knew there was a huge chance of getting some bad weather with Tropical Storm Erika coming so we headed to Beachline Raceway knowing we would be able to race since it was indoors. This also gave us a lot practice for the JConcepts race being held there next weekend.
 
The 13.5 4wd buggies were put into the same class as the mod buggies. David was able to keep up pretty well with the mod buggies and qualified 4th, but I did not do as well and ended up sitting in last. David’s buggy was dialed in during the main and he was able to take 2nd making it on the podium. I was very pleased with my run and was able to hang on and move from the last position all the way up to 4th. Today the top three drivers, Billy Bruce, David Iler and Trey Roberts ran 13.5 buggies out beating the mods and proving sometimes you don’t need all that power.
 
Starting the day off rocky with his 2wd Stock buggy David ended up doing pretty well by the end of the day finishing 6th.  I myself ran my 2wd Stock SCT. Unfortunately, I was the only one in that class so they put me with the mod Stadium trucks. By the end of the 6 minute main my stock SCT was unable to keep up as it was losing power, but I still had a lot of fun.

BRIAN LAURENT TAKES HIS #17 TO ITS SECOND VICTORY IN THE COWRC.COM TRIPLE CROWN SERIES
 
It took two weeks and 2 race days to get the second round of the COWRC.COM Triple Crown Series in the books due to mother nature. The scheduled date for the race was back on August 2nd where the day started out warm and sunny when the single car qualifying took place. Many guys were laying down 5.6 sec lap times until the #17, of Brian Laurent, rolled around and put down a 5.4 sec lap, to secure himself the pole in Heat race #1.
 
After the heat races were done, it was time to add up everyone’s heat race points, settle the tie breakers by their single car qualifying lap time, and get everyone sorted out for the mains. There were 25 SC Late Models signed in for the day which put some racers in the D-main all trying to get to the 8 car A-main, field.
 
The races were all complete up to the A-main until the storms rolled in twice late in the day, cancelling the races and moving the COWRC.COM SC Late Model A-main to August 16th.
 
Two weeks went by and it was finally time for Round #2 to be completed. With clear weather and the race scheduled to run right away in the morning, it was a for sure thing, we were going to get this race in! Brian Laurent was the Top Qualifier out of the heat races back on August 2nd, so he got to roll the dice for the inverted starting order of the 100 lap A-main. Brian rolled a 3 so that put him back in 3rd place and brought the #83 of Paul Peterson up to the front row, sharing it with his brother Wayne, making it a Peterson family reunion up front.
 
This was the first race of the day, so this A-main was on a fresh tacky race track, which set this race up to be exciting! As the green flag flew and sent the 8 car A-main on its way, from there two wide starting format, it didn’t disappoint and shaped up to be a good start to the 100 lap A-main, as Paul and Wayne ran side by side in the opening laps, with Paul up top and Wayne running the bottom groove. By lap 5 Wayne had the edge and was able to shake Paul off and take the #1 spot as Paul slid into 2nd place, until 2 laps later when Brian Laurent came to challenge and took over the 2nd spot, which sent Paul to 3rd. It was then Randy Yerke in 4th, Marcus Mcauly, 5th, Jack Zenil 6th, Bryan Barbeau 7th and Dana Zenil 8th.
 
It was Wayne, Brian and Paul paving the way early on with Wayne running a great race out front, not allowing Brian Laurent to make a pass for the lead until lap 27 when Wayne made little slip, allowing Brian to get underneath and take the lead. That lead was short lived, when Wayne Peterson would rally back to the front and take it back on lap #37. Wayne would show he had what it took to beat the Dominator as he had a comfortable lead mid race until lap 77 when his motor would over heat coming out of turn 4 and would have to retire his #16 ride, while Brian adopted the top spot and wouldn’t look back from there to claim the COWRC.COM Round #2 win! Paul Peterson would follow behind in 2nd, Jack Zenil, 3rd, Randy Yerke 4th, Bryan Barbeau 5th, Marcus Mcauly 6th, Wayne Peterson 7th and Dana Zenil 8th.
 
Round #3 is set for September 27th where we will crown a 2015 COWRC.COM Triple Crown Series Champion along with the top 5 getting awards and top 15 getting a payout. Brian Laurent has a 6 point lead over Paul Peterson but 2nd through 5th place are all separated within 4 points of each other. In 2014 it was the same two faces in the top two spots, where Brian and Paul were tied going into the 3rd round. Paul got the edge on Brian to win the 2014 Triple Crown Series Championship. Now Brian is looking for his first ever Triple Crown Championship. In two years of doing the TCS we have had 2 different champions. Cole Tollard won it in 2013 and Paul Peterson in 2014. We will see on the 27th if Brian can hold onto his 6 point lead and become the 3rd different champion in the series!
 
Thanks to all our Sponsors for the race CowRC, Tekin, Boca Bearings, Venom, Atomik, Proline, Viper, Xpert and Dirt on Dirt

This past weekend was the 6TH round of the JBRL series which was held at Controlled Chaos Raceway in Palmdale, California. As usual, the level of competition was high with yet another challenging layout that resulted in some very exciting racing with TONS of traction with the added sugar to the track surface. The total entry count reached over 180 entries.
 
In the PRO 4 class TLR David Jenson took the victory with his Orion powered Team Losi Racing TEN SCTE 2.0 with Pro-Line X2 Surburbs and orange seal ceramic BOCA Bearings.  David also took second in 4wd Mod buggy, 2wd Mod Buggy and in 1:8 scale.
