Ruona & Wynn On Top At Super Cup Round #3
This was the second attempt to run round 3 of the 2012 Spring Super Cup Series. Back in March we were able to get things started but before we could complete the first round of qualifying the skies opened up and our racing was done for the weekend. The days leading up to this make-up race were not looking promising. The normal 40% chance of showers on Saturday and some very heavy rains hit the area earlier in the week had some racers nervous that we would not see a round 3. With some amazing work by the Hurricane R/C track crew and several volunteers they were able to get the track repaired and in decent shape for Friday practice
As always, Jason Ruona was on pace from the first laps with his Factory Team B4.1 in 2WD Modified Buggy. Taking advantage of his pole position, he led the A final almost untouched while using his Reedy Sonic 7.5 motor, Reedy #306 "Shorty" LiPo battery, and his LRP SXX V2 speed control to do so.
In 2WD Modified Short Course, Team Associated's Zack Genova took the TQ spot, but wasn't able to continue that pace in the A Main. Paul Wynn was able to jump to an early lead and battled his way to the win with Team Associated/Reedy/LRP teammate Daimon Borkowicz finishing up third. Paul’s winning SC10 FT was hooked up with a Reedy Sonic 7.5, Reedy #628 LiPo battery, and LRP SXX V2 speed control.
