X Factory Dominates Tennessee Winter Champs
X Factory Team drivers Paul Sinclair and Cade Bivens dominated the mod buggy and mod short course classes at last weekend’s 4th Annual Tennessee
Winter Championships held at Thunder R/C in Nashville, TN. Bivens and Sinclair qualified 1-2 in mod buggy, with one of them winning every qualifier;
they reversed positions in mod SC, also winning every qualifier.
Paul said, "I raced at Thunder RC quite a bit while I was attending graduate school here in Nashville. I really enjoy coming down here every so often and visiting with friends and racers, new and old alike. While the track here is small, the layouts are great and the racing is always super-close. My X Factory cars are always really hooked up!"
Both drivers were running the X Factory Infinity chassis B5M and the SCX – 61 short course, and both were several
tenths per lap ahead of the field in each class. Cade made an early mistake in the buggy main, and Paul took the win, lapping
all but Bivens and third place while turning in a ballistic 14.3 fast lap. In SC, it was Sinclair and Bivens 1-2 wire-to-wire,
both with a lap on the field. Fast laps of the race for both were 15.1, with nobody else able to break 15.7.
Thunder R/C owner Robert Dirla prefers cash prizes to trophies or plaques, and those envelopes Paul and Cade are holding contain nice amounts. In the buggy photo they took the money out to show you. Thank you Dirla for great prizes and another great Winter Champs!
