Johnson & Buran win Annual Halloween Classic
The Annual Halloween Classic event in Ohio has been held in many different venues over the long history of the race. From the early days on the westside of Cleveland, to the Mentor area, Strongsville and now in the hands of the Gate in Brunswick, Ohio, the race has bounced around the area. One thing that has not changed over the years is the high level of competition at the event. In addition to a strong field of talent, the event was sold out for 2011. The venue ran out of physical space at 180 entries, simply could not fit another racer, an incredible turnout.
In the 17.5 class for 1:12th scale, Michigan pilot David Johnson took his new CRC Gen-Xi to an impressive TQ and win. Dave got his car just in time for the event and both he and the car were quickly dialed in. Dave used CRC tires and a CRC/Black Art R8C body to capture the victory. Dave used the standard cross pack arrangment with the inline speedo/servo position. Over half of the A-main included CRC cars including the top 3 qualifiers; Kenny Lambert 2nd and Chuck Lonergan 3rd. A strong result in one of the largest classes at the event.
In the WGT class, 2009 winner of the Halloween Classic, CRC driver Aaron Buran, took his CRC Gen-X10 LE to another TQ and win. Aaron used a fairly conventional and stock Gen-X10 LE to again take the victory at the Halloween Classic. The CRC Rocket Fuel pack and the font stiffener brace were used in Aaron’s win. A great result from the Ohio driver.
