Regalado & Apolaro win at Wallace Racing Challenge

The 1st Annual Wallace Racing Challenge was held at the World famous Full Throttle RC Raceway with over 65 drivers descended upon Kissimmee, Florida for four intense days of 1/8th, 1/8th GT and 1/10th scale Nitro R/C racing. 1/8th Open, also known as the F1 of R/C, was the premier class of the weekend. Gianni Giorgio would take the TQ and in the main Gianni would get off to a good start but would run into mechanical issues only 12 laps into the race. This would lead Roniel Regalado, Walo Walker and Paolo Morganti to battle it out for the lead. The race came down to pit strategy and fuel gun races. Big money was up for grabs and everyone was battling it out on the track for top honors. In the end Roniel Regalado would hold on to take the win with Walo Walker in 2nd and Paolo Morganti in 3rd.

1/10th Sedan was action packed all weekend. DJ Apolaro would take the TQ position and from the tone DJ had Eduardo Cabal hot on his heels. This would continue on for the entire race with DJ and Eduardo trading the lead during the race. Brian Thomas was in the 3rd position and would fall back a bit but come back strong in the end. This race truly came down to whose pit man was fastest on the fuel gun. The action was hot and heavy in the pits especially with the additional money grand prize that the winner of the race would receive. In the end DJ would cross the line in first with Eduardo 2nd and Brian 3rd. The top 3 finished with just three seconds separating them.
