Martin Korn wins Pro Buggy at Labor Day Shootout

Martin Korn wins Pro Buggy at Labor Day Shootout

The region’s top 1/8-scale racers converged in Chico, California for A Main Hobbies’ Silver Dollar RC Raceway to race at the Annual Labor Day Shootout. The Silver Dollar track, which just hosted the ROAR 1/10-scale Off-Road Nationals a few weeks ago was completely rebuilt to give 1/8-scale racers all the space they needed to get massive air time and scream down the long straightaway. The Silver Dollar surface grooved up after fuel and rubber was put down giving racers plenty of traction. In the Pro Buggy class longtime racer, and A Main Hobbies’ team manager Marty Korn managed to take the top qualifying honours. He and fellow A Main Hobbies’ racer Austin Blair, as well as TLR’s Philip Atondo all took turns grabbing a TQ round. Korn’s two TQ rounds put him first on the grid for the main event. In the 45-minute A-main, Korn and Atondo would get out front and set a faster pace. Both drivers were running 9-plus minute pit stops, which enabled them to gap the rest of the field. Atondo kept it close the majority of the race, but Korn was able to shake the pressure and pull out the victory.
