Chad Bradley does triple at Tuesday Night Nats


With well over 100 entries at last week’s Tuesday Night Nationals at Hot Rod Hobbies in Santa Clarita CA, it was Jammin team driver Chad Bradley who pulled off the trifecta winning and TQing all 3 classes he entered, 1/8 Truck, Buggy and Mod 4wd Short Course. Chad’s TQ runs for 1/8 Truck and Buggy came from round 1 of qualifying, in the Short Course class Jeremy Kortz TQed round 1 but Chad took the TQ time by 1 second in round 2. In the 1/8 Truck main, Chad lead from the start and never looked back, the main was 10min long and he completed it without a pit stop winning from Losi drivers Steve Burnside and DJ Silva. The 1/8 Buggy main was a similar affair, however Chad had some pressure early on from Hyper driver Scott Wagner. Jeremy Kortz got a bad start in the beginning keeping him from the up front battle between Wagner and Bradley. Chad ended up winning by half a lap over Scott Wagner with Jeremy Kortz taking the 3rd spot, both driving Hyper 9 2.0.



The highlight of the night was the 6min Short Course main between Chad and Jeremy, qualifying was so close it was bound to be a good race between the two Ofna drivers. The start of the Short Course main saw Chad lead off the start, however Jeremy took the lead on the 2nd lap but left the door open around the next corner and Chad was able to squeeze to the inside and lead for the next few minutes. Passing started getting rough between Bradley and Kortz with only a couple minutes remaining in the Short Course main event Jeremy blasted Chad at the end of the front straight however Chad was able to still hold the lead and a few laps later Jeremy passed Chad clean before the triple jump, upon landing the triple jump Chad made an aggressive move on Jeremy which settle the results in favour of Bradley.
