BMiller Racing’s Brian Strange and Lou Figueria kept up their respective hot streaks with wins in Round 3 of Hole-Shot Raceway’s Winter Off-Road Series. Strange pulled off the victory in expert buggy while Figueria took top honors in 4wd open short course.
Strange, running on Panther Slicks in clay compound and powered by a ProTek R/C 4100 70C battery, started in the third spot on the grid and remained in third until lap four of the six-minute main when he moved past Jason Moberly into second place. Running his fastest lap of the race in lap five (18.990), Strange started to close in on leader Phillip Atondo, and then took advantage of an Atondo miscue in the next lap to take over the top spot. From there, Strange never looked back, registering a series of low 19-second laps to finish with 19 total laps and win by three seconds over Atondo. Mark Antaramian rallied to place third and Marshall Lopez was fourth, while Moberly was fifth.

BMiller Racing swept the top of the box in all three pro classes in Round 2 of the Hole-Shot Raceway Winter Series in Sacramento on Saturday. Lou Figueria matched his Round 1 winning performance in expert 4wd short course with the Pro 4 victory, while Brian Strange won in impressive fashion in Pro Buggy and Eddie Bernal took home top honors in expert 2wd short course.
Figueria is now in firm control of the series points lead in Pro 4 after posting the TQ on Saturday and wins in both rounds. Piloting his Losi SCTE with a brand new ProTek R/C 2S “Supreme Power” Li-Poly 70C Battery from A Main Hobbies, Figueria led most of the six-minute main but was challenged throughout by teammate Terry Wickum in an Associated SC10 4×4. Wickum grabbed the lead at the halfway point for two laps, but Figueria laid down his fastest lap of the day to re-capture the advantage in lap 10 and then held on for a 1.9 second victory over Wickum.

BMiller Racing’s Lou Figueria has been practicing, wrenching, and racing a lot over the last couple of month’s and his efforts are starting to pay off. Figueria has posted four victories already in the month of January with his dialed Losi SCTE, including Round #1 in 4wd short course at Hole-Shot Raceway’s Winter Series.
The win didn’t come easy as Figueria had to hold off teammates Josh O’Connell and Terry Wickum throughout the six-minute A main. Wickum earned the TQ and pole position in his Associated SC104x4, but had trouble in the first two turns to find himself having to work back up through the field. Meanwhile, O’Connell grabbed the first lap lead in his Losi SCTE, but a small bobble in the second lap gave Figueria a chance to get around him.
