Andrew Poole triples at East Coast Offroad Series

Andrew Poole triples at East Coast Offroad Series

The 2014 East Coast Offroad Series tools place over six races and travels the corners of North and South Carolina while offering nitro and electric classes in both 1/10th and 1/8th scales. Andrew Poole swept the 2WD Buggy, 2WD SC and 1/8th E-Buggy classes to take a triple in this year’s series. Teammate Brandon Melton was also able to attend select events and put his Team Associated car in the victory lane, but missing out on a few events dissolved any chances of an overall championship. Chris Pace was able to take the runner-up spot, despite a misfortune with a transponder not counting a few laps. Unfortunately for Pace, the series director chose to award him with a ninth place finish rather than third, taking away points that would have given him the overall championship.
