Hartson doubles up at JBRL Electric Rd2

Hartson doubles up at JBRL Electric Rd2

Continuing on where he left off from round 1 of the JBRL Series, Team Associated/Reedy/LRP driver Steven Hartson dominated the field in both the ultra competitive classes of 1/8th electric buggy and 2wd modified. Starting from the pole in 2wd, Hartson quickly gapped the field and cruised home for an easy victory.  However in 1/8th electric buggy he got stuck behind 2nd place for the first 4 minutes of the 10 minute final. Patience and experience from the SoCal teenager proved to pay off as a tangle between 1st and 2nd coming on to the 100’ straight-a-way allowed Hartson to split the gap and never look back and take the win.
