-A A +A
By Andrew Harner

Slideways RC began racing in its inaugural eight-week points series on Saturday, drawing 46 cars to the event.

In the Kidz Modz, Zach Leigh took the win, lapping the entire field in the A-main race, but just .132 seconds separated the second-, third- and fourth-place finishers.

Jarrett Pasley earned two bonus points in the standings with the Hard Charger bonus by passing the most cars.

In the adult modifieds, Justin Short drove the Bud1 car to victory by just .06 seconds over Jerod Ramsey, who was the Hard Charger winner for the class.

In the outlaw modifieds, Josh Lofland worked his way up from the C-main into the A-main, and passed six cars to pick up the victory and the Hard Charger bonus.

Second-place finisher BJ Deal set a new track record, with a 5.491-second lap.
