Dustin Evans doubles at Lunsford Race

North West Hobbies hosted the 1st ever Lunsford Race in Albany, Oregon to celebrate one of the most influential individuals in the hobby today, Kelly “Mr. Titanium” Lunsford of Lunsford Racing. Like the metal, he’s no ordinary personality and after a quick chat you’ll come to realize what a stand up individual he is. Positive, light-hearted, and always willing to help, he’s given more to this sport than ever asked of. Because this was the 1st ever Lunsford Race, a few special guests were invited to make this event even more spectacular. TLR/Orion drivers Ryan Maifield and Dustin Evans were scheduled to come, but because of sickness Maifield wasn’t able to make it however the former nation champion Dustin Evans did.
