It’s that time of year again. Time to break out all the trophies and take that collective photo and assess my season as a whole.
2012 was another up and down year for me. It had a lot of disappointment due to having multiple issues during mains and semi-finals where I showed a lot of promise towards podiums or even victories. 2012 also had some good wins and also a lot more learning experiences and growth which will be utilized fully for upcoming years.
Here is my 2012 season breakdown:
1st Place Finishes – 29
2nd Place Finishes – 3
3rd Place Finishes – 1
Top Qualifier Honors – 32
Some other fun season facts:
Miles Flown: 108,220
Miles driven to test / practice / race / airport in my car: 4,676
Some of my best results include:
-Dirt Nitro Challenge Italy Victory in Nitro Buggy
-RC Pro Finals TQ and Win in Nitro Buggy and Truggy and E-Truggy and 4wd SC
-Byrons Heartland Challenge TQ and Win in Nitro Buggy and Win in Nitro Truggy
-NeoBuggy Event 5th Place in Nitro Buggy
-Alabama Manufacturers Shootout Wins in E-Buggy and 4WD SC
-Tekin World Champion in E-Buggy and E-Truggy
-Double TQ in Nitro Buggy and Truggy at Silver Dollar Labor Day Shootout
-Worlds A-main finalist and tied for fast lap of the final. (fastest lap in Semi)
So a huge thanks to all of my sponsors for making this year possible. I learned a lot. Had my expected hardships but also some good high’s as well. I really feel my race package is the best it’s ever been and I just know 2013 is going to be a break-out year for me!
