 1/8 Off-road Texas State Championship

Xray are reporting on the recent 1/8 Off-road Texas State Championship race held at the Toys for Big Boys track in San Antonio. The event was open for both 1/8th scale buggy and truggy and going into the event it was Jason Branham that headed the series points in Expert 1/8 buggy and Jimmy Matsler in Expert Arena truck. Qualifying saw no surprises at the top with Branham and Matsler heading their respective classes going into the finals. The Expert Arena Truck main final saw no mercy from TQ Jimmy Matsler who had a couple of bobbles early but quickly regained form and took control to win the Final, and Texas State Championship title, while Xray team mates Joe Mireless and Wayne Mann finished in 2nd and 3rd. The Expert 1/8th buggy final saw a close battle early on between Xray driver Branham and Caster Racing’s Mike Battaile as well as area local Dave Mangelsdorf driving a Losi 8ight, the former having problems and dropping down the order. Eventually Branham could get his head down and pull out a small gap to take the win, and the State title, in front of Mangelsdorf in 2nd and Hunter Kinsey in 3rd.
