Barry Baker, Chad Panek, and Tekno RC – 2013 JBRL Electric Champs


The ultra competitive 2013 JBRL Electric Series has ended.  After 8 rounds of racing all over Southern California, the results are in.  Barry Baker is the 2013 Pro4 Champ and Chad Panek is the 2013 1/8th Electric Buggy Champ.


In Pro4, Barry proved that the Tekno RC SCT410 is fast and consistent.  Whether indoor or outdoor, smooth or blown out, the truck is simply the quickest and most durable 4×4 SC truck available.  Barry put in a lot of hard work and excellent racing to take the overall championship.  Congrats, Barry!  Very well deserved.


In the ever-growing 1/8th Electric Buggy class, Chad Panek diligently drove his Tekno RC EB48.2 all the way to the championship.  Chad made only a few adjustments to his vehicle throughout the series and stated that the EB48.2 buggy worked flawlessly at every race in the series.  Nick Blais took an honorable 3rd overall in the series with his EB48.2.  There were 4 EB48’s in the top 10.  Congrats, Chad!  Let’s keep it going.

Thanks to Jimmy Babcock and the JBRL crew for putting on a great series.  See you all next year.
