Quebec Classic 2022

We were in Naperville, Quebec for the 2022 Quebec Classic. It was good to be back at Bego Raceway. The track layout was high speed, high grip and technical. It was a lot of fun to drive on!

We arrived Thursday for seeding practice. There were 2 rounds. We struggled with some mechanical problems with nitro buggy, which didn’t help my overall seeding position. Ebuggy however ran well. By the end of the day nitro buggy was in the C sort and ebuggy was in the A sort.

Friday, we had 2 more rounds of seeding, unfortunately mother nature had a different plan. Due to the rain, the race program was adjusted. We got one round of seeding instead of 2.

Qualifying was mixed. Ebuggy ran well in all 3 rounds. I qualified in 7th in the A Main. Nitro buggy went a bit better but, didn’t have the pace to qualify in the A. I started 6th in the B Main.

Sunday Mains. I needed to finished in the top 3 to get the bump up to the A in nitro buggy. We had a poor start. Got tangled up with a few cars ahead of me. Which had me fall back to 9th. I slowly started to move up through the field. By lap 18, I was in 3rd, with 16 laps to go. A few laps later when I was entering a turn, the car behind me hit my left side and I suddenly lost engine power and steering didn’t feel right. I did the best I could to keep pace and to hold onto 3rd, but it wasn’t meant to be. I finished 4th. Ebuggy A1 also didn’t have a good start. Got hit from behind which had me fall back to 10th. I pushed hard and gaining positions. I was able to finish 4th. A2 went better. In the first corner I got tangled with a couple of cars. I made a mistake early in lap one that cost me one position. I was 8th and slowly moving up through the field. By lap 8 I was in 3rd with 7 laps to go. I started pushing hard to gain on the top 2 cars and by lap 10, I was in 2nd . The lead buggy had a good gap and I slowly started to gain, but couldn’t catch him. I finished 2nd. Earning me a 2nd place over all position. JConcepts Detox (A2) was my tire of choice for both A finals. My Maclan powered XB8e ran fast and strong all week. My NitroPro servos kept my steering smooth and precise.

We would like to that Eric Deschenes and the Bego Racing crew for a great weekend of racing. We always have a great time!

Finished 2nd overall for the round. So, after 3 rounds of qualifying, I was starting P8 in nitro buggy B Main and P5 in ebuggy A Main.

Sunday Mains. First race was nitro buggy B Main. I needed to finish in the top 3 to get the bump to the A Main. I was starting from P8. I didn’t have a great start. I got bumped and dropped back to 9th. I slowly started to move up through the field. On lap 20, I was in 4th and closing the gap on 3rd. I made a couple of mistakes that allowed the 3rd place car to pull away. I finished 4th. Ebuggy was double A Mains. Had a great start. Gained 2 positions in the first lap.

The track was slippery so I had to adjust my driving. I kept it clean and tried not to make any mistakes. I started in second and held it all the way to the end.

We would like to thank John and Karla for a fantastic weekend of racing. We had great time.


We arrived at Bego Raceway on Wednesday to setup and walk the track. The lay out was technical and looked like a lot of fun. There were 349 entries and 149 drivers present. It was going to be a busy weekend.

Thursday’s practice was rained out. So, we spent the day working on the cars and catching up with friends.

Friday was seeding and one round of qualifying. We struggled in both seeding rounds. Giving us a 14th and 16th place going into round one of qualifying.

We had a good run in Ebuggy, sitting 5th overall. Nitro buggy we didn’t do as well. Finishing 16th overall after the first round.We had the last two rounds of qualifying on Saturday. Round 2 of qualifying didn’t go very well. I made a few to many mistakes in Ebuggy finishing 17th for the round. In Nitro buggy I had a bad crash in warm-up that couldn’t be repaired in time for the start. So, I got a DNS for that round. The final round went better in Ebuggy, finishing 14th for that round and earning me a 10th place staring position in the A Main. However, Nitro buggy didn’t go as well. I finished 23rd for the round, which earned me a 9th place starting position in the B Main.

Sunday Mains. In Nitro buggy, we needed to finished in the top 3 spots in the race to bump to the A. So, I needed to have a good race. I started 9th towards the back of the pack. I had a good start and began moving up through the field. The race was 20 minutes (35 laps). By lap 9, I was in 4th place and needed to close the gap on the 3rd place car. I was slowly closing the gap. With 3 minutes remaining in the race, I started to push a little bit harder. I was able to catch the 3rd place with one lap to go, and pass him for the 3rd place finish. Giving me the bump to the A Main.

I started 10th in Ebuggy A Main. This was race 1 of 2. It was an 8-minute race (15 laps). I had a great start. There was a pile up half a lap into the race which moved me up to 5th. The car felt good. I was feeling pretty confident with the buggy and drove a bit harder. I stayed clean and took the 5th place finish. A2 was just like A1, good start stayed clean and drove hard. By mid-race I moved into 5th and held it to the end. Earning me a 5th place overall.

I started 14th in Nitro Buggy A Main. With the extremely warm temperatures. We were concerned, if the car could run a 30-minute race, after it just ran a 20-minute race a little while ago. We didn’t have time to inspect the car post B Main race. We had a good start and I took it easy for the first few laps. I made a couple mistakes early on. I stayed focused and tried to drive clean. I was able to gain a couple of position, but unfortunately, we developed an electrical problem that prevented us from finishing the race.

The Xray XB8 and XB8e, with Maclan Racing, O.S Engines and JConcepts Tires (Detox) ran strong all weekend.

It was going to be a good weekend Friday practice was cut short due to Saturday’s forecast. So, we had seeding and two rounds of qualifying. We seeded 7th in ebuggy and 19th in nitro buggy.

After 2 rounds of qualifying, we were sitting 11th ebuggy and 10th in nitro buggy.

nitroblast 2020

We were in Tillsonburg, Ontario for the 2020 Nitro Blast at Otterville Raceway. As usual John Blakley and Karla Josephson put on a great event.

The track is truly a work of art. With the Daytona corner, multi-level jumps and even an option lane it was going to be and exciting race weekend.

We arrived Friday morning for practice. Both cars felt good. We were ready for the seeding rounds. Seeding went very well. We seeded 2nd overall in Ebuggy and 4th overall in Nitro Buggy. Qualifying started Friday night, and resumed Saturday morning. After 3 rounds we qualified 2nd overall in Ebuggy and 3rd overall in Nitro Buggy

Sunday were the mains. With the threat of rain in the afternoon there were concerns on whether we would get to complete the program. We started 2nd on the grid in Ebuggy A Main. The start went well. Took the lead early on and held it for a while. I made a small bobble and fell back to 2nd. With one lap to go we had a battery short out and the buggy stopped. DNF. My dad had marshaled majority of a 45 minute race, which didn’t give us much time to locate a spare battery for the 2nd race. So we didn’t make the start of A2. DNS. We would like to that Rob Van Es for offering Dylan his car for the 2nd race. Like to thank everyone who tried to locate a battery for us. About 10 minutes before the final race of the day it started to rain. So it was decided to start the race anyway. The start was wet and slippery and I feel back to 6th. A few laps in I found myself back in 3rd. I held that position for majority of the race. Pits stops were good, we had no issues there considering the wet conditions. The rain stop for a short period of time and a dry line started to appear. I was able to pick up the pace, but the rain started to fall again. We had LF tire blowout (tire unglued) and I did my best to hold my position. By the end of it (45 minutes) I finished 4th.

First we want to congratulate all the drivers in the final race. Everyone finished!

Like to thank John and Karla again for an amazing weekend of racing. Like to that Brandon Marshall for his work on the mic all weekend. We always look forward to your commentary!!

Team XRAY had a strong presence at the Nitro Blast and congrats to all of them on their podium finishes.

Quebec Classic

This past weekend we made the trip out to Napierville Quebec for the 7th annual Quebec Classic. The track was very technical with elevation changes and a couple of blind sections. It had an incredible amount of grip. This was my first time in the province of Quebec, first time at the Quebec Classic, my first time racing both Xray buggies, first time racing with the team boss present. I was a bit nervous.

Eric Deschenes, Kevin Lachapelle and the Bego crew put on a great event. The hospitality was amazing. The atmosphere felt like a family reunion. Everyone was having a good time.

The XB8e ran strong in all three rounds of qualifying. We finished 5th in round one, 9th in round two and 5th in round three. We suffered a DNF in the first round of nitro buggy. The last 2 rounds went well, finishing 7th and 5th.  After 3 rounds of qualifying, we were able to secure A Main starts with both cars!

I started 5th in ebuggy A1-Main. I didn’t have a great start, made a few mistakes early on. I was starting to find my rhythm then my buggy lost power after a jump. We were able to get it going, but I was a couple of laps down. We finished 12th.   In ebuggy A2-Main started 5th. I didn’t have a good start and fell back to 12th.  I slowly started to move up through the field. I was in 8th and gaining on the 7th place buggy, I pushed a little too hard and crashed and suffered suspension damage. DNF

I started 11th in nitro buggy A Main. This was my very first nitro buggy race, however not quite the start we were hoping for. In the warm up just before the start we had a front bearing failure (new bearing). The plan was to replace the bearing. Then our teammate Paul Parks had a complete RF suspension assembly from his own car and both my dad and Paul replaced it. I was able to line up on the grid just seconds before the start. The buzzer goes off and the engine flames out (stalls). We got the engine restarted, but by that point I was in 14th position. It was along race (30 minutes) so I knew I had time. I drove hard and the buggy was working well. I made a few mistakes but I kept my head down and started moving up through the field. I Finished 8th!  It was an awesome day!!

We would like to that Gord and Ty Tessmann as well Tony and Mark Sousa for their help. Like to thank Natalie Sousa for feeding us all week. Like to that Tori Camaro for asking the race director for a mercy minute, and a HUGE! Thank you to Paul Parks for his help in the pits and saving the day.

We attended the Motown Showdown at RC Clubhouse this past weekend. There were 77 drivers with more than 145 entries.

Motown Showdown

We arrived Friday morning for practice. We were hard at work getting the tires and setup sorted out. The cars felt pretty good. I felt confident with the cars going into Saturday’s race.
Round 1 of qualifying went pretty good for both cars. I finished 3rd in my heat and was sitting 4th overall in 17.5 2wd buggy. In 13.5 4wd buggy I was able to take TQ, sitting 1st overall. Round 2 went even better. I was able to improve my time in 2wd, finishing 2nd in my heat and sitting 2nd overall. In 4wd I finished 1st in my heat and was able to improve the TQ time. Round 3 didn’t go as well as I hoped. I made a few mistakes in my 2wd heat that had me finish 8th in the heat, but I was sitting 3rd overall. My final round didn’t go well in 4wd buggy. I got tangled up with a couple of cars early on and did my best to recover. I finished 3rd in the heat and sitting 2nd overall. I want to say congrats to Nathanial Betly for taking the overall TQ in 13.5 4wd buggy.

I was starting 3rd in 17.5 2wd buggy A Main. Had a good start, moving into 2nd in lap 3. I drove clean and took my XB2 to a 2nd place finish! In the 13.5 4wd buggy A Main, I was starting 2nd. Unfortunately Nathanial broke in warm up, which had me start on pole. My start was clean and slowly broke away from the pack. I was approaching a couple of lapped cars when I got hit and needed to get marshalled. I fell back to 2nd. I started to push to catch the lead car. By the 11th lap I was able to regain the lead and hold it to the finish!!

Both Xray cars ran strong all weekend. The Maclan MMax Pro ESC’s with the 17.5 and 13.5 Tuned MRR V2 motors are fast and reliable. The Maclan 4500mah V3 HV provided amazing power in both cars.

Friday practise went well. Dylan spend the day just getting a feel for the both cars.

2wd qualifying was a bit of a struggle as we’re still getting use to the car. Dylan was able to finish both 1st and 2nd round, however a motor issue prevented us from finishing round 3.
4wd qualifying went very well! Dylan felt very comfortable with the XB4’19 finishing all 3 rounds and qualified 8th overall.

We started 4th in 2wd buggy D Main. A couple of mistake early on had Dylan fall to the back of the pack. He drove hard and slowly began moving up through the field. He was in 3rd a closing the gap on the lead 2 cars, but traction rolled on the last lap. He finished 3rd.

2019 ROAR Nationals

We were in Columbus, OH for the 2019 ROAR Nationals at EN Hobbies. This was our first national event and we were excited!

We arrived Wednesday for practice. In a matter of a few feet of entering the building, Dylan saw all the pro drivers. He stood in front of me frozen. He was star struck. The smile on his face when he looked back at me was priceless!

Thursday seeding rounds went well. We were off pace but slowly improving. Dylan felt good with his SDX4. However the SRX2 needed some work. By the end of the day we felt good going into qualifying.

Friday qualifying was good. We slowly improved our pace but struggle to stay consistent. Dylan was feeling a little more confident with each lap

Saturday’s 2nd round of qualifying didn’t go as well. We had a wheel nut come off in the 3 round on his 2wd buggy race. By the end of the day Dylan was able to qualify in the F mains with both buggies

Sunday Mains. We started 10th in 2wd buggy. Unfortunately we didn’t have a clean start. We got tangled up the buggy in front of us going into the first turn. Dylan did the best he could to catch the field. We finished 9th. We also didn’t have a clean start with the 4wd buggy. We got stuck on the pipe on the first lap. He did the best he could and finished 8th.

We would like to thank all the drivers that signed Dylan’s T shirt. Also like to thank Billy Easton and Cledus Snow for helping us out throughout the week.
