DJ Apolaro wins Sedan at 2013 Winternats

DJ Apolaro wins 1/8th at 2013 Winternats

Beside the 1/8th scale classes the recent Winternats in Florida also saw the running of the 1/10th 200mm sedan class. The qualifying saw Ralph Burch take TQ from DJ Apolaro and Mike Swauger. At the beginning of the A main Ralph was able to pull away with DJ Apolaro in tow. The latter was running on relatively hard tires, meaning a slower pace for the Capricorn driver but DJ’s plan was to push in the final minutes of the race. Some minutes into the final Ralph made a small mistake and this allowed DJ to pass. He could then hold the lead while Ralph started to really push his car. It looked like it was going to come down to either Ralph or DJ and with Ralph eventually making another mistake DJ was able to drive an error free race for the entire 45 minutes with Xray’s Ralph Burch would end up having a problem towards the end of the race and this allowed DJ to back off and just cruise to the end and take the win in the Sedan class.
