XB8 Wins 2nd Annual Mardi Gras Nitro Open


Race report by Adam Joiner

This 2-day race was held in Southern Louisiana and hosted by Tri-City RC. The track crew put on a great race and the track held together nicely.

I was unable to attend the qualifiers on Saturday due to prior engagements, so the task at hand was quite large as I had to start dead last and bump through all the lower mains to make the Show.


With little practice before the mains started, I wasn’t sure on tire choice. I won the C-Main and then went on to take the B-Main as well. I changed a few things on my XB8TQ before the A-Main and went out feeling confident. Fellow Xray driver Sean Thomas had qualified 3rd but fell out of the race early due to engine trouble.
