Slingshot Batteries has informed us of the strong showing they had last weekend at the 2008 Hot Rod Hobbies Shoot Out. Up and coming ‘young gun’ Jeff Nicol piloted his Kyosho RB5 to the overall TQ and Championship in the hotly contested Stock Buggy class. Jeff was the class of the field throughout qualifying and took home the overall with wins in the first and second legs of the triple A-main event. Super Stock Truck belonged to Nick Lasley from the start. Wins in the first 2 legs of the triple A-main event gave Lasley the overall victory. With first place wrapped up, Nicol and a few other drivers still had a chance for top 3. After a tie breaker, Jeff Nicol ended up 4th overall losing the tie breaker to team mate Chris Van Air who took 3rd overall.
