Piersol Wins the Snowbird Nationals

The 19th Annual Snowbird Nationals was held at the Worldgate Resort in Orlando Florida. Known as the largest indoor race in the world the event typically attracts over 700 entries. The relaxed atmosphere and warm Florida sunshine make it a favorite for carpet on-road and oval drivers from around the globe.
Spektrum team driver Jimmy Piersol had a great weekend in the Vintage Trans Am class. Jimmy set the early pace in qualifying and went on to secure the TQ position for the A-main. From the start Jimmy pulled away turning in smooth consistent lap times and building a comfortable advantage.  At race end Jimmy had built a half lap lead over second place and cruised to the victory.
