The 8th Annual JConcepts Winter Indoor Shootout was hosted by Fastlane Raceway in Blue Springs, Missouri last weekend. Always a popular race and this year the WIS attracted some of the best racers in the region like super talented Mason Fuller, Tom Rinderknecht Tyler Keel, Alex Vanderbeek, Nick Gibson, Michael Twilling, Dave Alberico, and Rico Karstens. The grip is always good at Fastlane Raceway and this year’s layout for the WIS was even better. Overall, the layout was fun but not too difficult and allowed great racing in all class. TLR’s Mason Fuller and Team Associated’s Tom Rinderknecht had an epic battle in the Invitational class. Both finished the 2WD portion tied in points while Mason edged out Tom by 2 points during the 4WD portion to take the overall invitational championship. Both drivers put on a ‘next level’ show as they scored no worse than a 2nd place finish.
JR Mitch got the Mod Truck win. JR started 2nd behind Mason, but after a mistake by Mason Fuller on the 2nd lap, JR took over the lead and the win.
Great weekend also for Cole Henriksen as he grabbed the win in 2WD 17.5 and also ran well in the 13.5 2WD class to make it 2 wins for Cole for the weekend. Cole TQ and won in the 2WD 13.5 class with Mike Garrison in 3rd. Cole dominated the 13.5 class, started 2nd and worked his way back to the lead after an early crash.
Mark Vanderbeek TQ and won the 2WD Mod class at the WIS.
Mark also took the 13.5 Stadium Truck TQ and win as well.
