Chris Jarosz takes 2WD and 4WD at Winter Takes All
Last weekend, Traction Hobbies of Reno, NV hosted the second annual Winter Takes All race. Three rounds of qualifying were run on Saturday, rocket-round style, with Triple-A mains run on Sunday with eight drivers qualifying directly to the main and two bumping from lower mains. Drivers flocked from all over the northern California/Nevada area to see who would take the overall win along with the cash purse put up by Traction Hobbies owner Justin Clark. Team Driver Chris Jarosz was on hand to support Team Associated and Reedy customers as well as compete in the Modified 2WD and 4WD classes.
Qualifying went perfect for Jarosz, who took the TQ in both classes, set the fastest times in round 2 of qualifying on the indoor clay track. A1's of both classes would be wire-to-wire victories for Jarosz. A2 of 2WD would be another victory for Jarosz with his Blackbox/Sonic equipped B5M taking the overall title. A2 of 4WD proved to be more difficult for Jarosz. An early mistake put him down to the third spot, and it was an intense battle before his new B44.3 would come out on top, giving Jarosz and Team Associated their second victory of the weekend.
