2wd Mod Buggy was by far one of the most competitive of the weekend. Tekin powered Derek Stephansen was on a mission at his home track. Derek would Tq 2wd Mod buggy, 4wd Mod Buggy, and Pro2 SC Truck!
Tekin would also power B-Miller Racing's Josh O'Connell to an overall Tq in Pro 4 SC, Ron Bickle to his overall Tq in Stock 2wd Buggy, and Eddie Bernal to his overall Tq in Mod Stadium Truck!
The mains would be full of good close competitive racing. Up first would be 2wd Pro 2 SC Truck. Tekin team driver Derek Stephansen would start from the pole and rocket off to a rough start of A1. Derek would fall to 5th and have to make a major push to get back to the front. B-Miller's Terry Wickum was the only other driver matching Derek's fast lap of 20.2 in the main. Derek would be rewarded for his hard charging to take the lead on the last lap of A1! A2 again was a fight for the top spots with Derek being pressured hard by both Terry Wickum and Marcus Plumlee. Derek would sustain his 1st place position and take the win in A2 giving him the overall victory! Derek used a Tekin RS Pro and 8.5 Redline motor.
2wd Mod Buggy would kick off with Tekin team driver Derek Stephansen starting from the pole. Derek would get out to an early lead over Tekin powered Nathan Bernal. The two youngsters would dice it up getting through traffic with Derek getting the worse of it allowing Nathan to get past Derek to take A1 by just over a second! A2 would again come down to who made the least amount of mistakes, the racing was this close. Derek would bobble over the "make or break" quad allowing Nathan to get out front with his father Eddie Bernal in tow. The two would get out front and run clean laps. Derek would put on a charge late in the main only to drop out when his motor backed off causing him to DNF. Nathan would cruise to his A2 victory uncontested with his dad close behind. Nathan would sit out A3 and let Derek and Eddie fight over 2nd place. Derek would take A3 over Eddie and take 2nd place overall. All 3 podium drivers were powered by Tekin esc's and motors. Keep an eye on young Nathan Bernal, this kid is an up and comer and will be a force to reckon with. Nathan was using a Tekin RS and Redline 10.5 motor.
B-Miller's Josh O'Connell would take off from his Tq position and go onto dominate this class taking A1 and A2 with his Tekin Rx8 Pro 4 powered Losi Ten SCTe. Rounding out the podium would be Marcus Plumlee and Tekin powered Lou Figueria also running a Rx8 and Pro 4 motor.
B-Miller's Eddie Bernal would Tq and dominate the 2wd Stadium Truck class with his Tekin/Protek powered T4.1 Factory Team truck. Eddie would take A1 and A2 with clean fast laps. Local hero Cody Hughly would take 2nd overall with Tekin powered Greg Stephansen rounding out the podium. Eddie used a Tekin RS Pro and Redline 6.5 motor. Great racing!
Ron Bickle would take the overall Tq and win with his Tekin powered TLR 22 buggy. Ron used a Tekin RS and Redline 17.5 Motor.
