Dirt Oval fans across the country know that the place to be in early January is Tulsa Oklahoma to cure their winter racing blues. Over 20,000 of them pack the Tulsa Expo center for 5 night of racing to watch some of the best drivers in the world compete at the annual Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.
The past 6 years R/C racers have also had Tulsa marked on their calendars to participate in the Chili Bowl Jr dirt oval race held in the adjacent Mustang Arena. Over 250 racers from around the country competed in nitro and electric classes that were scale replicas of dirt Late Model, Modified, and Sprint Cars.
Spektrum Team drivers had a very successful weekend taking home four A-Main wins. Frank Deiny won the Nitro Sprint class, Nathan Dean picked up two victories in electric B- Modified, and 2wd Late Model classes, and Max Flurer was the dominant driver in 4wd Late Model class. All three drivers were using Spektrum DX3R Pro radio systems and SPMSS6070 servos.
Spektrum would like to congratulate team driver Dylan Gerard for picking up two victories at the 2013 CRCRC Midwest Nitro Championships held at the Ohio RC Factory in Jeffersonville, OH.
Dylan TQ’d the 1/8 Pro Buggy Class and lapped all but his second place teammate Collin Weatherholt in route to the 45 minute A-Main win. Dylan was also smooth and fast with his 8IGHT E 2.0 Electric Buggy. He TQ’d the qualifying rounds and went on to win the first two mains of the Triple A-Main format and secure the win. Both Dylan and Collin were using Spektrum DX3R Pro radio systems and SPMSS6090 High Voltage Servos.
