Drake double winner at Canadian Indoor Shootout

Drake doube winner in Canada

This past weekend was the Canadian Indoor Off-road Shootout in Tillsonburg, Ontario, Canada. This race contained the best drivers in Canada along with some Americans including TLR / Novarossi / Pro-Line driver Adam Drake who attended the race which saw nearly 400 entries. Friday started with open practice in the morning and after lunch the organizers ran two rounds of seeding practice to set up Saturday’s three rounds of qualifying. The track was hard packed and stayed very consistent for all three rounds of qualifying. TLR’s Adam Drake would TQ all three rounds of buggy and truck. TLR’s Dave Henry secured the TQ in the 4wd short course class with his TLR SCTE 2.0.

In the 30 minute 1/8th nitro buggy final drivers remained close in the beginning, but  Drake eventually pulled away with his Nova Rossi powered TLR 8ight 3.0 on Pro-Line M4 Holeshots by running the fastest laps of the weekend. Adam Drake was able to pit comfortably every 10 minutes with his Novarossi Keep Off 4 engine. As the 30 minute final came to a close it would be Adam Drake who would take the win, Derek Sousa in second and Jerome Tregnier in 3rd.

In the 30 minute nitro tuck final the drivers again stayed close in the beginning, but Drake’s pace was too much and he was able to pull away from the field.  Drake’s pit strategy in the truck final was the same as the buggy final, pitting every 10 minutes with his Nova Rossi Keep Off 7 engine.  Adam Drake took the win with his TLR 8ight T 2.0 and Pro-Line M4 Holeshot tires with Daniel Yachnin in second and Derek Sousa in third.
