What a long race weekend. Started out Friday morning we left at 5:00am and headed to Gainsville GA to race The Wicked Weekend. This was a covered venue with an awesome layout built by Bobby Moore.The track had some technical to easy sections which kept the racing close. They had 310 entries and ran 4 qualifiers Saturday and mains Sunday.
Griffin ran Pro E-Buggy which had 34 racers and Pro Nitro Buggy. In E-Buggy he had 4 great qualifiers which allowed him to start in the 2nd spot on the grid. They ran 3 10min mains and took your best 2 out of 3 runs for your overall. The first main Griffin and Shay Brand traded places a few times but Shay ended up with win 1 and Griffin 2. The second round Griffin was able to get a win which tied the two racers. Going into the last round it was anybodies to win. With a small mistake by Brand,that allowed Hanna to get by early. Shay kept the pressure on and Griffin made a mistake which let Team Mugen driver Shay Brand to get the overall win.Team Serpent driver Griffin Hanna finished in the 2nd spot with 3rd going to Losi driver Cole Ogden.
We ran silver sweep dirt effects in rnd one.Round 2 we went with a harder compound and choose blue dirt effects.Third round we gambled and tried silver micro contacts.Each tire we choose worked awesome! Our Serpent E buggy was dialed all weekend and hooked up on Sweep Racing USA tires. We ran the Team Tekin Racing ESC Gen 2 RX8 and T8 1900kv motor.No glitches all weekend.
This was our first time here at this race and it was great. We will be back next year for sure.
