Tacoma R/C Raceway in Tacoma, Washington hosted round 3 of the 2nd annual Pacific Northwest Showdown. Track owner Scott Brown and staff prepped the track and building during the week to set the stage on an excellent event.
The Pacific North West Showdown travels to four of the best racing facilities the Northwest has to offer. Round 4 will be held at 4 Seasons R/C Racing in Lacey, WA in February.
Team Associated vehicles dominated round 3 of the PNW Showdown, taking the win in six of the nine classes. Modified Buggy was dominated by two Team Associated/JConcepts drivers: Luke Smith won the first main and first place overall with his Reedy-powered B4.1 WC, and fellow Team Associated driver John Walentia TQ’d and won the second main, finished second overall. Luke also took the Modified 2wd Short Course overall with convincing wins in both mains driving his Reedy-powered SC10, again teammate John Walentia TQ’d and finished right behind him in second place. Both drivers used JConcepts gold Bar Codes in mod buggy front/rear and gold Bar Codes on the rear rear and Pressure Points up front in Short Course.
Kyle Schoening drove a very intelligent race and won Stock Buggy with his B4.1 WC with JConcepts gold Bar Codes. Mike Brown won 4×4 Short Course with JConcepts gold Bar Codes. Patrick Morehead won Stock Truck with his T4.1 and JConcepts gold Bar Codes. Evan Margeson won Stock SC with his Factory Team SC10 with JConcepts gold Bar Codes in the rear and gold Pressure Points in front.
Thank you to Scott Brown at Tacoma R/C Raceway and Marty Barnes as series promoter for an excellent race.
