    The fans of off road racing may often see Alumi Craft cars traveling at high speed through the deserts of Baja California. When the locals of Ensenada, Mexico flocked over to Estero Beach for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, they witnessed a different kind of racing and a different kind of Alumi Craft. Pro Buggies are expertly crafted high precision machines designed specifically for short course off road racing.

    2x championship winning, Darren Hardesty Jr. expertly piloted his #99 Alumi Craft Pro Buggy through and around a swarm of 13 competitors. Every car pinned on the throttle battling for track position around a tight sweeping course makes for very exciting short course off road racing action. “HotSauce” was able to best the competition and captured two race wins!

    “HotSauce” commented on his victories. “The race weekend treated us well. We wanted to do good this weekend since we had a tire go down in the first round. Practice proved that Alumi Craft Pro Buggy was super quick with two 2nd fastest and one 3rd fastest lap times of the three sessions. In qualifying, we lost a shift knob but still pulled off a third. After a simple clean up and hardware check, the car was ready to take the course.

    Once the race started, my job was easy from there. Just point the car and go! The #99 Alumi Craft proved to be fast all weekend and we took home the win both days.
