BMiller Racing’s Todd Pearson recently won both the Spec 2wd Buggy and Spec 2wd Short Course titles for the six-round Outback Raceway Wednesday Night Off-Road Series. Pearson was victorious in both classes using ProTek R/C Supreme Power 100c shorty lipo packs from A Main Hobbies.

Piloting a Kyosho Ultima SC in the 17.5 spec short course class, Pearson convincingly won the points championship by posting three wins and two second place showings in the five rounds he competed in. Jerry Douglas finished second overall in the class and Shaun Klobas was third.

The battle for the spec stock buggy crown, however, was as close as it gets. Pearson, who is the manager for A Main Hobbies’ retail store in Chico, CA, rallied in the final three rounds of the series with a win and two seconds to win the overall title with his Associated B4.1 by just one point over Jeff Fridrich and Brian Romo.

Other class winners included Romo in Spec 2wd Stadium Truck, Kerry Lemos in Open 4wd Short Course, and Ronnie White in Rookie.
