This past weekend at the 29th Annual Spring 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals
in Lima, OH, the winner of Class IV was Chris Rogers in Hurricane Bailey with a best time of 2.369. The winner of Class V was Kelly O'Dell in Under Pressure with a best time of 2.152, a new national record. Kelly was also the winner of Class VI, with a best time of 2.121, another new national record. Issues with staging required track workers to manually stage the racers with the old "this far to go between my hands" method, so it is unclear whether Kelly's national records will stand, but there is no question he was extremely fast and has an outstanding car this year. Congrats Kelly, looking forward to seeing what you do the rest of the season. In Class IV, Ed Block had problems shutting down and was unable to stop before crashing through a fence and then through the wall of a building past the fence. Ed was able to walk away, but his car is mostly destroyed. No word from the guys who were pressure washing the roof of the building at the time. Pictures
from Ed's crash and from Classes IV, V, and VI have been posted.
