Schinzano makes a-main in his first 1/8 race

Leonard Schinzano is known to many as being an exceptionally fast 1/10 racer, and many have wondered whether he will be able to apply that talent to 1/8 off-road. Well, I'm excited to announce (but not shocked in the least) that he made the A-Main at this weekends 'Big Kahuna' race at AMS Speedway, in Grand Blanc, Michigan. In fact, I earned the last spot in the A-main myself, so there were 2 Caster's in 'the show'.

We both suffered trivial problems during the race, with Len's clutch bearings failing him, and a rear wheel nut falling off my car. I was able to rejoin the race after minutes in the pits, trying to source another wheel nut (thanks for your help Nate). Leonard wasn't so fortunate, and regretfully fell from 4th place, where he was running at the time, to getting a DNF. We wound up finishing 7th (Kevin) and 8th (Len) as a result, but having two Caster's make the A-main, was exciting.

During practice, a gentleman in the pits leaned over to me and said "Holy cow! he's fast huh?". I proceeded to tell him that Len had never run 1/8 off-road before, and was simply trying to get used to his new car. He laughed, and said "ya right". With nothing more I could say, I simply replied; "remember this name...Leonard Schinzano".
