DJ Apolaro TQs & wins at Florida Nitro Series Rd4

Last weekend saw the running of the fourth round of the Florida Nitro Series. In the 1/8th scale Pro class it was a tight battle for the TQ. Ultimately DJ Apolaro would take the overall TQ with Gianni Giorgio and Roniel Regalado coming in 2nd and 3rd respectively. For the main there was a little bit of a rain delay, but the organisers were able to get the race going, however they shortened the mains from 30 to 20 minutes and this made is possible to race. When the final started DJ had to pit after just the 4th lap for a quick tune and this would drop him to 6th, while this allowed Gianni and others to get up front with the lead. While leading Gianni would make an error just a few laps later, meanwhile DJ was working his way back to the front pack. After about 13 laps DJ was back to the front and was able to keep the lead till the end. In the end is was DJ Apolaro (Capricorn) 1st, Tony Rice (Shepherd) in 2nd some three laps down and Mike Strack (Xray) in 3rd just five seconds off Tony.

Thanks to DJ Apolaro for the report.
