Joel Lee doubles at Cottage Grove Invert race

Cottage Grove RC recently held their annual Invert race. The event sees the A1 grid order start based on qualifying order, A2 grid order is inverted, and the combined A1 and A2 points decide the A3 starting order. The two best results of three then decide the final results. In 2WD Pro Stock Buggy Joel Lee would take the TQ and with wins in A1 and A3 he would grab the overall beside scoring a DNF in A2 due to a stripped bulkhead camber link. Terry Shulz would come in 2nd from Loren Smith 3rd.

In 4WD 13.5, A1 started out o.k. for Joel but a mechanical failure caused a DNF. Since he took last place in A1 Joel got to start inverted and from P1 for A2. This gave him enough distance between the P2 driver to pull out and stay ahead for the entire race. In A3, P1 started in 1st and Joel was in P3. In the opening stages the two played follow-the-leader until the second placed driver bobbled, allowing Joel to cruise to the win despite having some bobbles here and there. Ultimately Dave Davoe would end on the runner-up spot from Terry Shulz 3rd.
