Dustin Evans wins Norcal off-road champs Rd3


TLR’s Dustin Evans swept the 2WD and 4WD classes at the third round of the Norcal off-road championships at Norcal Hobbies. In 1/10 2WD Dustin used his TLR 22 buggy to set the fastest time in every round and take the overall TQ, leading the top 7 qualifiers all with TLR 22’s. When the tone went off for A1, Dustin quickly jumped out to a quick lead, and never looked back taking the win, with Cody Turner in 2nd. A2 say more of the same with Dustin getting an early lead, and moving away from the pack. Matt Schreffler was able to hold onto the 2nd position ahead of Cody Turner in 3rd. Dustin would take the overall win, with Schreffler and Turner completing the podium.

In 1/10 4WD Matt Schreffler started qualifying off on the right foot by taking a dominant TQ in round 1. Dustin Evans would come roaring back though in the 3rd round to snag the TQ away from Matt, and would better that time in the 4th round. A1 saw Schreffler have a technical issue in warm up that cause him to retire, and Dustin would cruise to an easy win.  In A2, Dustin would break and have to retire, and Matt had issues with lap traffic, but came back to finish 2nd. This setup an all out battle in the 3rd main for the title. Dustin would get a good start and lead early, but Schreffler stayed very close, even pushing Dustin in spots. Matt eventually made a small bobble and Dustin would pull out his lead and take the decisive win give him the overall title, and Matt finishing 2nd overall with Eric Albano (Kyosho) in third place.
