Congrats to both drivers! Here is a small report from each race:

2016 Concepts Indoor Off Road Championships, Report by Jared Wiggins:

I had an awesome time at the JConcepts race in Rockford, Il at Race Em Rc! Practice went well with my EB48.3 being on pace from the first time it hit the track! Qualifying was close between Associated’s Corey Crosley and I as I would win the first qualifier but come in a close second for 2 and 3, with the fastest time from round one I would need a Q3 win for the overall TQ. I was up by 5 seconds until a traffic issue caused my lead to vanish and Corey would take the TQ. The main was fun with a couple lead changes until I was able to pull away for the win by a half a lap! My EB48.3 was amazing all weekend!!

Final Results:

1st: Jared Wiggins

2nd: Corey Crosley

3rd: Travis Brock

North West Model Hobby Expo Race, Report by Jesse Munn:

The 2016 North West Model Hobby Expo was held this past weekend, 1/29 – 1/31/2016, at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA. The 3 day event featured a swap meet, drift racing, battle robot competitions, drones, boat racing and the highlight of the event (at least according to me) was astroturf off-road racing in front of an impressively large crowd. Saturday was a DieHard RC points race and Sunday was a completely separate event also put on by DieHard RC in which all the entry fee money went back to the racers as each class had cash payouts based off of finishing position.

Both days used a format that consisted of 2 rounds of qualifying and single main events. My Tekno teammate Keith Hadley and I battled bumper to bumper over all 4 rounds of qualifying and both mains over the 2 days. I beat Keith by just .1 seconds in the first qualifier and he beat me in all 3 of the remaining qualifiers by small margins to take the TQ both days. After extremely close battles I ended up on top in the main events but it easily could have went the other way as Keith and I swapped positions seemingly every lap. The Tekno SCT410.3 trucks were working great on the high bite surface and Tekno took a podium sweep on Saturday and top 2 on Sunday. DieHard RC put on a great event, check them out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/DieHardRC and look for them to be posting information on more great events coming up here in the Pacific NW!

Final Results:

4×4 Short Course (Saturday Race):

1st: Jesse Munn

2nd: Brian Hadley

3rd: Brian Gillett

4×4 Short Course (Sunday Race):

1st: Jesse Munn

2nd: Keith Hadley

3rd: Shane Gagnon
