NURK Takes 5th at the IGP Pumpkin Dash

Yesterday we hosted a race in one of the worst imaginable conditions I’ve experienced. While the 40mph gusts may have seemed trivial, the hilarity of the fact that we kept racing was crystallized to me when the waitress at Open Range Bar & Grill stated that her usual route to work was blocked because of an oak tree that had fallen across the road to work.

Despite this, we had an awesome race with wonderful people. The best pilots of the day definitely won. Alex Campbell showed us his stuff and dominated qualifying and elimination heats, winning triple A mains handily, only requiring two heats to put away his victory. Jerrod Quillen and Jake Schneider rounded out the podium.

One of the highlights of the race for me was running the 3″ props on a 5″ quad challenge. We all swapped out our props and launched without ever even test hovering. I managed to get the win, but JohnEly was right there ready to pounce if I made any mistakes. It was a BLAST.

Thanks everyone that attended for your patience with our new chapter as we are trying to figure out what works, and screw you, mother nature for being so rough on us this day and giving us a beautiful day the next.

STAY FLYING BOYS!
