Justin Moon recently made the switch to Team C, and the change has agreed quite well with the 24-year-old BMiller Racing driver. Piloting the TC02 Evo Buggy, Moon led a BMiller Racing sweep of the pro buggy class in the final points standings for the LSR Speedway Fall Series, winning three of the six series legs (Rounds 1, 5, 6) and taking second in his other scoring round (best four finishes were counted towards final points).
Powered by Tekin electronics and a 4100mAh 70c ProTek R/C shorty pack from A Main Hobbies, Moon had to win in the Round 6 finale in order to take the overall series victory. He was dialed in the eight-minute Round 6 A main on clay Panther Bobcats (front) and clay Switch 2.0’s (rear) and came away with a 10-second victory over the field.
Eddie Bernal finished second in the final pro buggy standings and his 14-year-old son, Nathan Bernal was third overall. The elder Bernal won Round 3 and was second in the first two legs, while young Nathan took the top spot in Rounds 2 and 4.
BMiller Racing was also represented on the top of the box of Pro 4 short course with team drivers Patrick Zhao and Lou Figueria taking first and second, respectively. Zhao won Rounds 1, 2, and 5 and Figueria took Rounds 3, 4, and 6. But the final overall one-point difference came from Zhao earning three TQ bonus points to Figueria’s two bonus points.
Both Zhao and Figueria drive Losi SCTE’s muscled by a Tekin Pro 4 4600 kV motor and RX8 speedo, ProTek R/C 70c lipo batteries, and Panther Switch tires in clay compound mounted on DE Racing Borrego SC wheels.
Other class winners included Nathan Lavery in 17.5 NR Buggy, Jace Tillman in Sportsman Buggy, Jeff Lorenzo in 2wd Open SCT and Stadium Truck, Craig Patterson in 17.5 NR 2wd SCT, Frank Deaver in 2wd Sportsman SCT, and Tom Sores in 4wd Sportsman SCT.
