We’re at the end of our American Rocksports recap, and we can’t sign off without a shot of Derek West. He managed to break a 300M stub shaft, after 3+ years of hard racing, which is a  friendly reminder to always carry a spare. Unfortunately, his only spare on hand was an old non-Spidertrax stub which, after installed, only lasted a few laps. Too bad, Derek was very fast and certainly one of the top drivers to watch. Although ARSC didn’t go the way he planned, he still manged to grab a 7th place spot overall for the Pro Series. Which leads us into the next bit of information.

Ultra4Racing.com just released the official Pro Series placings. As expected, Brad Lovell did capture top honors (congrats Lovell Racing!) with Erik Miller in 2nd and Loren Healy in 3rd. Can’t resist, but all three top spots were won with Spider 9 axles (we’ll take that!). Here’s the list of Pro Series champions:

Looking over the list, it would appear Spider 9 axles & components actually took 9 out of 10 Pro Series spots! Now that’s pretty cool, and always nice to see. More action is on the way, with both Ultra4 and TORC taking to the short course track this weekend. We’ll be there, yet again, to capture the action so stay tuned for more photos and stories.
