Team TRORA traveled to Wakefield, MI in the west end of the Upper Penninsula to enjoy the beautiful scenery and compete in the 2019 APBA Stock and Junior National Championships. The weather was so beautiful early in the week that the race committee pushed hard through the schedule anticipating the weather could change late in the week. Their weather predicting ability was spot-on as racing was finished Thursday morning and the lake became unusable due to high-winds as Friday approached.
Team TRORA placed very well overall - results below:
Competing in the largest class of the week with 26 entries, Nate Mitchell won his second consectutive championship in A Stock Runabout after a thrilling final race. Nate also finished 3rd in the A Stock Hydro final after winning his elimination race to qualify.
In a return to the runabout racing of his youth, Dana Holt of Cincinnati, OH showed he still knows how to get a rollup runabout around the course by winning his elimination and finishing 3rd overall in the 15SSR class. Dana also won his CSH elimination but fell to 7th overall in the final race. In 20ssh Dana finished 2nd.
Karissa Mitchell brought home a pair of 3rd place finishes in AX Hydro and AX Runabout demonstrating real consistency at the front of the pack in the fastest junior category events of the week.
