The 42nd annual running of the Midwest Series Round 2 was hosted by Nitro Club of Portage, Indiana. The race was held last weekend and classes included 1/8th scale open, 1/8th scale GT and 1/10th 200m. This was an interesting track, a permanent setup but still a parking lot surface making grip challenging and low 18 second lap times with the 10th scale and just getting into the 16’s with 1/8th open. Qualifying was very tight in 1/8th scale after the second round the top 3 cars had been separated by less than .250 of a second. On day two the track was sprayed again and the grip was very high in the morning shuffling the top 8 cars each round. The track really showed who was able to deal with the changes in traction from round to round. The grip level had changed again by the 1/8th final the track had lost some of its early morning grip and slowed by about .4 to .5 per lap. Jeff Zuccarell took the win in 1/8th open with his Murnan Novarossi powered MRX-5 ahead of Lon Burling in 2nd and Ted Hammer in 3rd. In the 1/10th scale class it was Andy Power taking a clear win from Chris Dosech in 2nd and Loran Whiting in 3rd. Finally in the 1/8th GT Open class Mark Lyday won by 3 laps ahead of Mark Rodney in 2nd, with Karl Ennulat 12 laps further back.
