80/35 Raceway in Grimes, Iowa held the 2013 2nd Annual Spring Classic. 109 entries made up of the area's fastest drivers were ready to throw down. The 36' x 75' track is a high-traction mixture of clay and black dirt.

11-year-old Jason Hills was in attendance competing in the Pro4 SCT, Open 4WD Buggy, and 1/8 E-Buggy classes. After three rounds of qualifying on Saturday, Jason TQ'd Pro4 SCT, and qualified fourth for Mod 4x4 buggy and third for 1/8 E-Buggy.

Sunday was all Triple A mains. In 4x4 SCT, Jason took the win in A1 and A2 with his Team Associated SC10 4x4. After some tire grooming for Jason’s Team Associated RC8.2e buggy, he was able to take the early lead and win both A1 and A2 to secure the overall win for 1/8 E-buggy as well!

Open 4WD Buggy saw Jason work his way from 4th to 2nd with his Team Associated B44.2. A couple of bobbles kept him from catching first spot. A2 saw Jason working his way to 1st and hold it till the end, setting up for an epic A3 battle. Jason was clearly determined to take the win in A3. Jason’s B44.2 was on rails as he worked from 4th to the lead early and never looked back, taking the overall win!
Jason was thrilled to win all 4WD classes at this event.
