Team Losi’s Chris Wheeler performed well in Round 4 of the KBRL Nitro series, which took place at Scottsdale RC, home to the Cactus Classic, one of his favorite races. The Cactus Classic is one of the largest electric off road races each year and it always draws a big crowd and is a showcase of talent and exciting racing. This racing event was no different than the Classic, only this time nitro buggys and truggys would be the vehicles to hit the track!
Chris Wheeler and his 8 2.0 buggy would be the team to beat in qualifying as he set the pace in rounds one and two, to take the overall top qualifying spot for the 20 minute main. Fellow Team Losi Driver Billy Fischer challenged Wheeler in the final, taking the lead for about half the race. Chris took back the lead and battled Max Flur, but was able to seal the deal in first, with Flur taking second place. Rounding out the expert buggy Losi podium was TRL’s Casey Peck. Good wins for Team Losi Racing!
