Josh Wheeler doubles at Futaba Challenge St. Louis

Josh Wheeler doubles at Futaba Challenge St. Louis

This past weekend was the O.S./Futaba Challenge in St. Louis, MO. The track was built by The Dirt Racing with lots of jumps and some nice flowing sections that made for good racing. The racing format was best 2 out of 3 qualifiers with two 20 minute main events for both pro buggy and truggy. There would also be a dash for cash with the top 6 qualifiers starting in inverted order. Truggy qualifying went very well for Josh Wheeler as he managed to TQ the first two rounds to take the overall TQ. Buggy was going to be tough with top names like Jared Tebo, Ryan Lutz and Taylor James. The first round went well but a mistake would cost Josh the overall TQ to Taylor James. The 2nd and 3rd rounds went much better and Wheeler TQ’ed both rounds.
