The Heart of America Series kicked off at the Fastlane Raceway in Blue Springs recently and it was Serpent driver Jari Taskilla who took the win.
Taskilla TQ’d for the race and was one of 3 Serpent 720 drivers to qualify in the Top 5 after three of the four scheduled rounds of 5 minute heats. Rain descended on the track for the fourth run causing the cancellation of the remainder of the meeting with the result being declared on qualifying order.
The only driver to break into the 19 laps in qualifying, Taskilla was in top form and should be a major contender for the HOA Series title, which runs over seven rounds.
