Falcon wins 17.5T at 2013 Minnreg Turkey Shoot

The 2013 Minnreg Turkey Shoot was held by Mike Boylan and company in Florida. It is a three day race featuring oval racing Saturday and Road Racing on Sunday and is one of the few times over the year that Florida road racers go indoors and compete on carpet. In the largest and most competitive Road Racing class, 17.5T Rubber Touring, Roberto Falcon, in his first outing with the Awesomatix car, hung tough through qualifying learning how to tune and setup his car while battling round after round for TQ in the class. When qualifying was finished TJ Bradley was the top qualifier, with Mark Burt 2nd and Roberto Falcon 3rd. All three drivers were separated by less than 1 second. Prior round TQ, Cory Parsons, would end up 4th qualifier after the final rocket round. In the A-final, TJ, Mark and Roberto got out front and started to break away from the back. Roberto got by Mark and started chasing TJ. Half way through the race TJ piped it and the top 4 cars all collided. Roberto was the first out of the pile with Cory in hot pursuit. Roberto held up to one minute of pressure from Cory until he tapped out too allowing Roberto to cruse to the win, followed by Mark and finally Cory taking 3rd.
