Phend wins Factory Tracks Midwest series Rd1

The first round of the Factory Tracks Midwest series was held last weekend at AMS Raceway in Grand Blanc, Michigan. Over 180 entrants competed in every electric off-road class imaginable, from 2wd buggy to 1/8th E Truggy. The AMS facility provided an excellent venue for the event, which is the only indoor race on the FTMS calendar. The layout provided some high flying action for the fastest classes, but was still very manageable for all skill levels. Electric 1/8th buggy has become one of the more popular classes in the Factory Tracks Series, and the large number of entries in this year’s season opener is a good indicator of things to come. After overcoming some mechanical issues early in qualifying, TLR/Horizon driver Dakotah Phend put his TLR 8ight-E 2.0 on the pole position. Once the A-main began, there was no looking back for the TQ, but there would be plenty of action in the rest of the field. Mike Sontag would take the second spot and Chris Peterson would take the final podium position.
