DJ Apolaro TQs & wins at PF Nitro Grand Prix

The 2019 Protoform Nitro Grand Prix was held at the very popular Steel City RC Speedway recently. In the 200mm Nitro Sedan class it was Capricorn’s DJ Apolaro with TQs in round 4 and 5 that secured him the overall top qualifier position after a slow start on the opening day of qualifiers. In the last round he was also way ahead for another TQ run, however DJ did not finish the run. He would maintain the overall TQ winning the tie breaker with the fastest times. For the final DJ had to install a fresh engine and did not get a chance to practice. Considering this his team decided to play it safe, and ran a rich setting and pit very early. With DJ’s pace his team knew this would still work. In the end Apolaro took home the win ahead of Serpent’s Walter Diaz in 2nd and Mugen’s Brian Thomas in 3rd. Mike Swauger in 4th and Eric Jones rounded out the top 5.
