X Factory drivers Mike Wilder, Chris Cristo, and Brian Kinwald took home lots of hardware from
the J Concepts North East Championship race held at R/C Excitement in Fitchburg, Mass. the
weekend of Sept 17 - 19.
Cristo absolutely dominated the 13.5 buggy and truck classes, TQing and winning each by a lap or more with his X 6 Squared and X 60. In stock short course, Cristo again TQed and won, this time with his SCX 60.
Wilder, who qualified 3rd in mod truck, battled back and forth for most of the race with several other trucks, taking a slim lead with two laps to go and holding on for the win in his X 60. Mike also qualified and finished 3rd in pro mod short course.
Brian Kinwald qualified fourth in mod buggy and through 8-min A main methodically worked his way to the front, finally taking over first place with just a few laps to go. On the second-to-last corner, the second place buggy ran into the back of Brians X 6 Squared, and the ensuing crash allowed the third place car through for the win, with Brian finishing third.
In pro mod short course, Brian qualified second with his SCX 60 and finished there, making it X Factory 2 & 3.
We are very proud of the entire Family and Team results from this race, said Team Manager Paul Sinclair. It was gratifying to see how many X Factory cars were fast here. The top four qualifiers in stock truck were X 60s how cool is that? It was great working with the Family on set-ups and driving tips all weekend.
