JR Mitch and Josh Talmadge win 2009 Florida State Series with JConcepts. JConcepts takes top 5 positions in 1/8th pro buggy.

Florida has always been one of the toughest places to race and home to some of the best drivers on the east coast. The Florida State Series has been in existence since 1992 and has always provided one of the most competitive fields of racers in the southeast.

JR Mitch (pictured above) continued his Florida winning ways in the 1/8th buggy and truck class in the FSORS 2009 series. With JConcepts providing the tires, bodies, wheels and accessories JR dominated from the start. However JR was not alone; In the 1/8th buggy pro class, JR lead a 1st – 5th place JConcepts sweep with Nick Angelidas 2nd, JP Tirronen 3rd, Jason Ruona 4th and Nathan Wincek in 5th surrounding JR among Florida’s elite. In the 1/8th truck division, JR led the JConcepts 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th results with Nathan Wincek finishing the 2nd position, Tony Pattishall 4th and Mike Mennella 5th.

Josh Talmadge (pictured above), a relative newcomer to R/C, made a big splash onto the scene in 2009 by winning the 1/8th buggy sportsman class with just a year’s worth of R/C racing experience. Josh’s buggy was completely covered with JConcepts products all year long including the Hi-Flow and Punisher body line as well as his tire of choice, JConcepts Crossbows for buggy and Cross Hairs for truck.

As we look forward to 2010, JConcepts would like to congratulate the entire staff, sponsors, participating race tracks and racers of the Florida State Series on another outstanding season.
