Barry Petitt and the Double Dees take the win in the Georgia State Series.
The 6th round of the Georgia State series went off this past weekend in Loganville, Ga. There were around 115 racers in attendance and this series always has some great competition. Barry’s tire of choice was the JConcepts Double Dees on the buggy and the truggy, and they were extremely hooked up! The TQ in Buggy was close, with the first 3 in the A-main each TQ'ing one round.
After putting down the fastest and only 12 lap run of the event on worn Double Dees Barry had to settle for 3rd on the grid after tie-breakers. Starting 3rd on the grid didn’t affect the focus however a broken tie-rod during the beginning of the race completely changed our potential. After repairing the tie-rod we finished the 30 minute main. Double Dees held up well and we felt we would have been a player for the win if the mechanical trouble had not happened.
In Truck we started 2nd, again on a set of blue Double Dee's with the stock foam. Barry took the lead before the first fuel stop and never looked back, finishing 2 laps ahead of second with an average lap time of over 1 second per lap faster than the competition. We looked at the tires after the 30 minute main, expecting them to be worn beyond use. As you can see from the attached photo, the tires were barely worn! We were amazed! We will be using that set again!
Thanks again for all your support and great product!
