Jason Branham 2013 Ice Breaker race

Jason Branham 2013 Ice Breaker race

The annual Ice Breaker race took place at the recently renovated Indy RC World track in Dallas, TX. Indy has done a great job cleaning up the facility but mainly the track area got the biggest upgrades with lighting, expansion and new dirt. There were around 140 entries and the bulk of the entries came to compete for Pro Buggy honours. The high bite, blue groove surface made finding the right tire compound for the time of day crucial and everyone seemed to be fast with lap times very close but it was going to come down to who was going to be the most consistent. The high bite surface could cause a traction roll at any time so if you weren’t on your toes you could get out of shape and get it wrong very quick. Jason Branham managed to TQ the first round of buggy with his XB9 but with mistakes he knew the time may not stand.  Kyle Skidmore from AE was running fast and consistent during Saturday’s qualifying and he was able to put it all together to take the overall TQ honors in buggy proving he was going to be the man to beat. In the final Kyle Skidmore got off to a slow start and Jason got by him quickly.  With the right tires and set-up the Xray driver was able to maintain consistency and stretch his lead fast. He then never looked back and took the win from Denver Houghton (TLR) and David Joor (AE).
