Phend does double at JConcepts Fall Indoor Nationals

Now in its 12th season, the JConcepts Indoor National Series travelled to Hoosier RC HobbyPlex in New Albany, IN, over the weekend for the ‘Fall’ event where Dakotah Phend came away with the buggy double.  The Team Losi Racing star would secure the TQ in both 2WD and 4WD buggy en route to taking home the wins against three World Champions.  Fastest in all three 2WD qualifiers, Phend would line up on pole ahead Xray’s Ty Tessmann and Yokomo’s Ryan Maifield.  Neither were able to find away passed in A1 & 2 allowing Phend to wrap things up early.  With him absent from A3, Tessmann could take the win from Cole Tollard to secure 2nd overall with World Champion Spencer Rivkin completing the overall podium thanks to two 3rd place finishes.  In 4WD Phend again topped all qualifiers to lead away the A-Main field from Maifield, Broc Champlin, Tessmann and Rivkin.  While he would win A1, an early mistake in A2 left Phend with a 5th as Maifield took the win from Tessmann meaning it was A3 to decide the overall win.  An exciting final encounter would see Maifield put a pass on Phend to go to the front with the TLR driver quickly coming back at him, unfortunately a problem for Maifield would deny the big showdown.  Making it a INS podium double, Tessmann would complete the 4WD Buggy Top 3 behind Phend and Maifield.
