Florida has always been one of the toughest places to race and home to some of the best drivers on the east coast. The Florida State Series has been in existence since 1992 and has always provided one of the most competitive fields of racers in the south east. JR Mitch continued his Florida winning ways in the 1/8th buggy and truck class in the FSORS 2009 series. With JConcepts providing the tires, bodies, wheels and accessories JR dominated from the start, winning the series from JConcepts team mates Nick Angelidas 2nd, JP Tirronen 3rd, Jason Ruona 4th and Nathan Wincek in 5th. In the 1/8th truck division, JR once again took the win in front of Nathan Wincek in 2nd position, while Josh Talmadge, a relative newcomer to R/C, made a big splash onto the scene in 2009 by winning the 1/8th buggy sportsman class with just a year’s worth of R/C racing experience.
