We're huge fans of Deep Jewel Green, which means we love Chris VanGilder's '90 LX. Plus Chris is a diehard NMRA racer, so we enjoyed seeing him do well at Bradenton. Chris qualified fifth and took advantage of Dan Rawls absence in Round 1. Then Chris pulled out a stellar 8.64 against Alton Clements to get to the final. He pulled out yet another 8.64 in the final against Brian Mitchell, but Brian's own 8.61 was just a tad too much to overcome. There are plenty of strong runners in the EFI Renegade class, but watch out for Chris as the season rolls on.
