Lots of success at this past weekend's Jconcepts Indoor Nationals. The new updated actinium was taking names and making mains! We nabbed three podiums one which was an overall win for 17.5 Buggy. Big ups to Kyle Layton and Rob Moots for their podiums. Congrats to all our customers and drivers for their Amain finishes. This was the last race at the highly competitive Outback Raceway. Wish I could have been there to see everyone doing so well. Sorry for anyone I missed!

Kyles race summary:
With Fall Brawl 2014 over, it feels good to look back at the weekend and remember the fun times! Thanks to everyone for the awesome racing and all the laughs. Looking forward to next year's Fall Brawl!! Racing was tough as the competition flooded the building. I had a lot of tough luck but ended up getting past some of it later in qualifying and the mains. Ended up TQ in stock SCT but had some bad luck which put me 4th overall. Mod SCT treated me fair all weekend after qualifying 3rd place and finishing 2nd. But Pro Stock Buggy was the most fun I have had racing in a while. After breaking a rear arm in the 2nd corner of the first qualifier I thought it was all over, but going into the 2nd heat I put my head down and drove my own race end finished 3rd. the 3rd and 4th heat races were even better and ended up setting TQ for the weekend. Buggy was on point with Team Powers giving it the power it needed and my Jconcepts tires keeping it stuck to the dirt! Triple A Mains had me wondering what the outcome would be, but I ran a flawless A1 and when A2 came along I knew I only had to do it one more time. And I did, barely... It was almost a miracle. So I ended up winning Pro Stock Buggy. I want to throw a special thanks out to Team Powers USA for the fast stuff and keeping my buggy going fast. Also a shout out to Amain.com, BMiller Racing, and Jconcepts. Thanks everyone for the help!
The banner says it all. Awesome run Craig! Two weekends ago Team Powers headed out to one of the largest On-road races in the states, The International Indoor Championships; hosted by none other than race organizer Scotty Ernst. Over the last few months we have been working hard here at Team Powers to develop and ensure proper workmanship and performance out of our recently released Actinium and Xbooster products. I have to admit over the summer of hard work we lost a bit of focus on the upcoming larger On-road events. We have known for a while our motors have been solid on carpet and pavement, so the focus was to ensure we had proper setups for our Off-road team. A few weeks before Vegas I realized that we hadn't promoted this race enough internally to our team. We had a few drivers going but this wasn't something we had completely thought out. It's Vegas though right? Let’s just jump on the plane go promote and support our products and see how it goes. Not sure what to expect, Eric V. arrived at the Riviera and made his way through the IIC pits. I wish I had been there to experience the feeling of being able to see the fruits of our labor come alive. Instead I would have to settle for the torture of watching second hand through liverc (Which I'm truly grateful for). Word had spread pretty well since the release of the Actinium. As Eric V made his way through the pits and got to really looking around he noticed that racers cars were littered with Actiniums and xboosters. We have to give a big hats off to our wonderful dealers for promoting these gems and getting them into the hands of some very fast racers. Word had spread so much that Actiniums had even leaked into the hands of our competition's team drivers. Team Powers did much better at this race than we can even advertise. All we can say is that 50% of the 17.5 and 13.5 12th scale and Touring A-main classes used Actinium power. Craig’s win with special motor setup help from Eric Anderson was an awesome moment for Team Powers. We have finally taken a win at this prestigious event. Anderson had recently discovered our motors and is now a dealer for us (EA motorsports)! He made the decision like many others well before the IIC that this was the motor to bring. Team Powers would like to thank Craig Xaiver and Eric Anderson for their efforts!

P1 for Team Powers Actinium!
We would like to wish all our team drivers and all other participants good luck at this years Reedy Race! Practice starts this week. The new Actinium motors will be in attendance.
New Actinium motors showing some real promise just weeks after release!
This past weekend brought confirmation that the new Actinium motors are extremely fast. Months of testing and hardwork have paid off with some great results! Father/son Team Powers drivers Nathan and Eddie Bernal finished a sweet second and third behind World Champion Steven Hartson in the hotly contested Expert Buggy Class. Team driver Rob Moots clean up the truck class with a top podium position! We would like to thank our talented drivers for the hard work they have put in!
