JConcepts Super Indoor Tour Rd2 – Report
Beachline Hobbies & Raceway was the host for round 2 of the 2019 JConcepts Super Indoor Tour over the weekend. Beachline Raceway is a unique indoor track that uses an artificial turf rolled out over top an old dirt track that gives racers that off-road feel, but with endless amounts of traction. With the unique track conditions, the local fast guys seem to have an extra gear and can be tough to catch throughout the single day race. Race day began with early morning practice as 101 entries prepared to do battle throughout qualifying and the double main format used in this new series. Qualifying was ultra-tight with the “best 3-lap” system being used as racers traded the top seed 5 and 6 times throughout a 4 minute qualifier bringing extra excitement to each and every heat. The double main format once again proved exciting as many racers took advantage of the 2nd chance main. 2WD Mod Buggy had some great battles, but it was local favorite Kai Goff that had a perfect weekend winning the double A-mains. Lee Setser and Brett Kingsbury would tie for 2nd, but it was Lee who took the tie-breaker for 2nd overall and Brett 3rd.
4WD Mod Buggy saw some great racing with 2 different winners, but it was Julien Oliveras who won the tie-breaker by .5 of a second over teammate Lee Setser who would settle for 2nd and Kai Goff taking 3rd.
13.5 4WD Buggy had a nice 3-way battle, but it was Jabin Carlton taking the overall win with a tie-breaker over Melvin Perez in 2nd, and John Prickett in 3rd.
13.5 Stadium Truck saw Jeremy Harris taking the overall win with his double A-main dominating performance over Billy Bruce in 2nd and Kevin Castillo in 3rd.
Expert 17.5 Buggy saw a perfect weekend by AJ Marasco as he TQ’d and won all of his races for the overall win. Local fast guys Melvin Perez and Billy Bruce would trade 2nd place finishes in the double main format, but it was Melvin who would win the tie-breaker for 2nd and Billy in 3rd.
Independent 17.5 Buggy proved to be a great race with 2 different winners, but it was Joey Andre winning the tie-breaker from Kyle Newhouse for the overall win. Kyle would settle for 2nd, and Kevin Castillo finished 3rd.
