DiBrino and Ferrell Win the First Annual Pumpkin Classic!
 
The 1st Annual Pumpkin Classic was held Saturday, October 28th 2013 at Top Gear Raceway in Clackamas, Oregon. This one day event would bring in over 70 entries, including some of the fastest drivers from the North-West.
 
Two 5-minute qualifiers were ran followed by double 5-minute A-Mains to decide the champion in each class.
 
2wd Modified Buggy
The highly contested 2wd Modified Buggy Class would show great racing all day. Kyosho/Team Orion Factory Driver Andy DiBrino would prove he was the man to beat by laying down the fastest single qualifier by over 3 seconds.
 
DiBrino would then carry that momentum into the A-Main events and convincingly finish with a 1-1 to take the overall Win with his Team Orion powered Kyosho RB6 in Mid-Motor!
 
Up and Coming young talent Tanner Day would turn some heads by qualifying 3rd overall in this very fast field, then finishing with a 2-2 to take 2nd overall with his Team Orion powered Kyosho RB6 in Mid-Motor!
 
Kyosho America/Team Orion USA Team Manager Joe Pillars put in a solid performance by qualifying 4th overall and finishing with a 3-3 to take the final spot on the podium with his Team Orion powered Kyosho RB6 in Mid-Motor.
