One more Team Blasfome update from last weekend. Also in attendance at the Clubloose Spring Moves event in New Jersey was the one and only Troy “Squirt” Manners. A little background on Squirt. We met him last year at The Clubloose 2 Midvale events that we sponsor. Troy was one of the stand out drivers at the Clubloose events. 16 years old at the start of the season we were all blown away by his ability to drive a car like a maniac. We were of course had to get him on the squad. Fast forward a year and Troy is still killing it.
Spring Moves was Squirt’s first event of 2013 and with a rough off season he was eager to get back in the car after 7 months off. Spring Moves would be his first event driving his Nissan with a completely new suspension set-up and engine tune that outputs 400hp.
According to Troy the day was going extremely well until some contact with The Bloodmaster’s Steve Angerman resulted in a broken steering knuckle on Troy’s car and cut the day short.
The broken steering knuckle and a few minor issues on Troy’s car should be addressed before the Clubloose 2 event at Midvale Speedway on May 12th. We look forward to seeing Troy there.
