Event: 2012 Outback Raceway Electric Shootout
Place: Chico, California
Date: March 3-4, 2012
Racer Report: Aaron Biner

Over the weekend of March 3-4, A-Main Hobbies Outback Raceway (Chico, CA) hosted the Outback Electric Shootout.  The event attracted 247 entries from all over Northern California.  Practice was all day Friday with 3 qualifiers on Saturday, single mains on Sunday.  JConcepts was in full support with Eric Albano (Team Associated) and Aaron Biner (Kyosho) in attendance.

In the 2wd Open Class, Eric Albano TQ’ed the 78 total entry class in a close battle over Bryan Eady.   In the main, Albano would fight his way back from a rough start to take the victory in convincing fashion with Phillip Atondo (2nd) and Jimmy Jacobson (3rd).   Fellow JConcepts teammate Aaron Biner would finish in 4th.   A-Main Hobbies Curtis Door would round out the top 5.

In the 4wd Open Buggy class, Eric Albano would TQ the class with 2 blistering fast runs with Aaron Biner qualifying in the 2nd position.  Early in the main, Albano encountered a mechanical failure which placed Aaron Biner directly in the lead.   A battle ensued with Biner and Brian Strange with Biner gaining the advantage late in the race.   At the end of the main, Biner would take the victory with Strange in 2nd and Cody Hughie in 3rd.

In the Open Stadium Truck Class, Aaron Biner qualified and finish in 2nd securing another great podium finish for his JConcepts equipped Kyosho vehicle.  Phillip Atondo of TLR took home the TQ and Win. 
In Open 2wd Short Course Class, Aaron Biner and Eric Albano battled it out in qualifying.  Eric and Aaron would both win two rounds and also take two 2nd place finishes each.  It came down to tie breakers for TQ.  Biner took the TQ by 2 seconds for the tiebreak.   In the main, Albano and Biner battled it out for nearly 6 1/2 minutes.  A couple of rough driving incidents led to Albano waiting up for Biner.   This continued as a 2-way battle until a 3 way collision at the beginning of the straight led to a flip flop in positions.  Albano would get a nice bounce along with Eddie Bernal.  Biner would get the worst of it and drop back to 3rd.  Bernal’s car suffered a mechanical failure and had to drop out and this moved Biner into 2nd.  The final finishing order was Eric Albano (1st), Aaron Biner (2nd) and Brett Bowen (3rd).

Aaron Biner (4wd) and Eric Albano (2wd and SCT 2wd) both used gold Bar Codes on all vehicles to win in 3 of the 5 open classes.  It was a great weekend for JConcepts.   Congratulations once again to Outback Raceway and A-main Hobbies on a great event.   Looking forward to next year.
