Race Report: Bring The Heat 2015

Team Hitec Brings The Heat!

Event: Bring The Heat @ FRC
Date: September 11-13, 2015
Location: Flowood RC Park – Flowood, MS
Team Hitec Attendees: Billy Tompkins, Adam Drake, Bill Shephard

By: Billy Tompkins
Flowood RC Park is an indoor RC racetrack in the small town of Flowood, Mississippi just outside of the state capital of Jackson. For the past 5 years, Flowood RC Park has been host to the annual 1/8th scale Nitro Offroad race where racers from all over the country flock to this small Mississippi town to vie for the “Bring The Heat Championship.

This year’s race would bring over 250 entries among 10 different classes. It was our first year attending Bring The Heat so we decided to bring our booth display to showcase our latest products including chargers, servos and our newest edition to our radio lineup, the Lynx 4S. Many of the drivers from this region had never been up close and personal with our gear so we had many visitors at the Hitec booth.

bring the heat booth

In attendance for the 5th year in a row was Team Hitec’s very own Adam Drake. Adam would compete in the coveted Pro Buggy class, as well as the Pro Truggy class. Louisiana local and Team Hitec Driver Bill Shephard participated in the race as well with great results. Together, these two class acts would bring home three podium finishes. After a 30 minute A main event, Bill Shephard went on to finish 2nd.  In the Pro Buggy Class, Adam Drake had a rough start to the 45-minute main event but he battled back with a solid 3rd place performance. In the Pro Truggy class, Adam looked to be in fine form as he led for the majority of the race and crossed the finish line with a commanding lead over the field. Both Adam and Bill used Hitec’s 9000 series servos and their Lynx 4S radio to take them to the podium!
