The JBRL Series finals were held at Hot Rod Hobbies in Saugus, CA just a few short weeks ago. Team Orion Factory Drivers Ryan Cavalieri, Frank Root, and Joe Pillars took time from their busy schedules to attend.

The new track layout for the JBRL Final would also be the same layout for the Reedy Truck Race the very next weekend. The track was very high speed and flowing with a huge triple jump in the back of the track.

With blue skies and warm temperatures all weekend long, the stage was set for a great finale.

In the 2wd Modified class, Joe Pillars set the TQ with his Team Orion powered Kyosho RB5. Frank Root would start in the 10th position on the grid after problems in qualifying forced him to bump up from the B Main. With a rough first lap in the front of the pack, Root used it to his advantage coming from the 10th spot on the grid to 2nd. Frank then took the lead and never looked back. Pillars made a great charge to catch the leader, but Root made no mistakes taking home the win.

In the Modified Truck class, Ryan Cavalieri set the TQ with his Team Orion Vortex powered T4.

After a couple laps in the books Cavalieri was force to retire from the race when a gust of wind caught his truck over the triple. Frank then took the lead and was unchallenged for the win.
