ARCS Hobbies in Ashtabula, Ohio held its annual Winter Blitz race last weekend
at their indoor track, and X Factory drivers TQed both mod buggy and stadium truck
on the tight indoor track. As usual at ARCS, traction was very high, with slicks
the order of the day. The track is fairly small, so we saw just eight or nine cars
on the track in most races with 15 heats in qualifying.
X-Teamers Brent Wilks and Ben Mosio each took a first and a second with their X – 6
Squared buggies in qualifying, and when the third round was over it was Wilks on pole
with Mosio right behind. Track owner Ryan Goff and Paul Sinclair also made the A main
with their X – 6 Squareds, so X Factory had four cars in the 9-car A. In truck,
Paul Sinclair, driving the new carbon fiber X – 60CF was TQ.
In the main, Wilks and Mosio checked out. The youngest members of the X Factory Team,
they swapped the lead several times and eventually ended up where they started, with Brent
first and Ben second. In truck, Sinclair led the first half of the race with his new slim-line
truck until landing the double on top of a pair of crashed trucks on two consecutive laps!
The new truck looked totally dialed, and Paul finished second.
