Johnny LoGiudice wins 2wd at JConcepts NE Champs

Jhonny Lugidace wins 2wd at JConcepts NE Champs

The JConcepts Northeast Champs attracted 160 eager racers to one of the best Indoor tracks in the Northeast, RC Excitement and with teams from Kyosho, X-Factory, Associated, Losi and TQ, there was no shortage of talent in the building. With the 2wd A-Main field hosting of road legend Brian Kinwald and Associated Hotshoe Steve Hartson, the stage was set. An epic battle began with Losi factory racer James Schlick leading the pack with Steve, Brian and Johnny LoGiudice in tow. James led for more than half of the race when a late bobble allowed Steve, Brian and Johnny through. On the last lap Steve and Brian got together allowing TQ Racing driver Johnny to slip by for the win. The race was so close that the three drivers had to wait until the finishing order was announced.
