Chris Jarosz doubles at Winter Takes All

Chris Jarosz doubles at Winter Takes All

Traction Hobbies of Reno, NV hosted the second annual Winter Takes All race. Three rounds of qualifying were run on Saturday, rocket-round style, with Triple-A mains run on Sunday with eight drivers qualifying directly to the main and two bumping from lower mains. Drivers flocked from all over the Northern California/Nevada area to see who would take the overall win along with the cash purse put up by Traction Hobbies owner Justin Clark. Qualifying went perfect for Chris Jarosz, who took the TQ in both the 2WD and 4WD Modified classes, setting the fastest times in round 2 of qualifying on the indoor clay track. A1’s of both classes would be wire-to-wire victories for Jarosz. A2 of 2WD would be another victory for Jarosz to take the overall title. A2 of 4WD proved to be more difficult for Jarosz. An early mistake put him down to the third spot, and it was an intense battle before he would come out on top, giving Jarosz his second victory of the weekend.
