Zack Barry Dominates 18th Sacle East Coast Championships


The 2007 1/18th scale East Coast Championships were held at Rc Excitement in Fitchburg Massachusetts on September 14-16th. Racers attending came from as far south as Texas, and as far north as Canada. Xray factory Team driver Zack Barry attended the race again this year after winning the A main in the Formunla truck class last year. (Where trucks run on an on road course).


Zack, having never raced a sedan before, decided to try his hand at the micro touring car class this year. Having just built 2- M18 pro kits the week before the race, Zack and his dad arrived at the track on Friday knowing that they had a lot to learn in a short period of time in order to prepare for the qualifiers on Saturday. After a lot of set up tips from fellow racers, and dozens of practice runs, Zack felt fairly confident going into the qualifiers on Saturday. After 3 rounds of qualifying, Zack had finished with the TQ in Formula 18 truck (by 2 laps), 3rd in pro brushless micro sedan , and 5th in pro mod micro sedan. On Sunday the mains were run. In the Formula18 class Zack had and amazing 28 lap run, winning by a full 2 laps. Next, Zack ran his Tekin powered M18 pro in the pro brushless A main. Again taking down the first place win. Finnally in the pro mod class, Zack had a tough run, finishing in sixth place in the A main.
