Adam Drake at the 2012 Psycho Nitro Blast
Drake doubles up at the fifth annual Psycho Nitro Blast in Unadilla, GA last weekend. The Psycho Nitro Blast has become one of the largest events of the year, but still has a very laid back fun atmosphere. This year’s the event had nearly 600 entries, coverage from liverc.com, tons of practice, wooden jumps, and a wall ride. Jimmy Babcock and Nick Black were the race directors and they kept the program running smooth.
Adam Drake had a busy weekend running three classes and prepping his “Rocket Car” for its annual jump. In qualifying Adam was able to TQ the E buggy class and ended up second on the grid for nitro buggy and truck. Adam won both of the 10 minute E buggy finals, the 45 minute truck final, and finished 3rd in nitro buggy after a rough start. Adam’s consistency paid off and he was able to take home the 2012 Iron Man Award for the racer with the best combined score from three classes.
