Date of the Event: 05.17.2008A New JC win at the Arkansas State Pro-Series
Location: Boberts Raceway in Bono, AR
Date: May 17, 2008
JConcepts drivers Rod Rippee and Chris Baumgartner headed south to round two of the Arkansas State Pro-Series. As qualifying started it showed that Matt Gosch was on another level. It became obvious early on that after a long winter of racing electric with Rippee and Baumgartner he was ready to show them how it's done with a nitro car. Matt TQ'd every round of qualifying in convincing fashion.
The start of the main saw Gosch and Baumgartner check out from the rest of the field after a first turn pile up collected Rippee. By the 10 min mark Gosch had put at least a lap on the field. By the half way point Gosch had a lap on Baumgartner in 2nd who had a lap on Rippee in 3rd.
With less than 10 min to go Rippee put it in overdirve and got his lap back from Baumgartner. With just a few minutes left in the race Gosch had a mechanical issue that put him on the sideline for a few laps, handing the lead over to Baumgartner but Rippee was coming fast, he closed the gap to Baumgartner to with in just a few feet as the tone went off! Baumgartner got the extra lap and the win with Rippee missing the line by less than a tenth of a second. JConcepts drivers went 1 and 2 with Baumgartner taking the win, Rippee 2nd, and Gosch in 3rd. Also using JConcepts products in the main was up and comer Joe Buckley in 8th! Both Baumgartner and Rippee were using Yellow Hitmen on their rides.
