Alexander Landén TQs & Wins at Lusse race

See: XRAY

This past weekend was held the annual Lusse race in Borås, Sweden. This year the organizing club had done some modifications to the race format.

Whoever was quickest in that from the top five would start on pole in the first final.

Joseph Quagraine wins at Toys for Tots race

See: JQRacing

This past week end was held the Toys for Tots race at Thunder Alley RC Raceway in Beaumont, California. The track has a lot of elevation change, big jumps, and a bumpy curved sweeper of a straight. The track is run wet, and during the day it dries a bit during some of the heats. The surface is soft when wet, and a bit loamy, so it gets really bumpy.
