Kyosho/AKA driver Cody King swept both expert buggy and truggy classes at the Tri-State Off-Road Championship. Hosted by Radical Racers in El Paso, TX, the race is fundraising event to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Inspired by local racer Corbyn Showers, who is affected by MD, Father/mechanic Paul King and Cody traveled to Texas to support Corbyn and the event after meeting him at the Nitro Challenge in Arizona. Kyosho also donated an ST-RR kit as a raffle prize to generate additional contributions. Cody King and his Mother helped to sell raffle tickets to generate as much revenue as possible, raising a total of $1050 from just the ST-RR kit.
In his first outing with the AKA tires, wheels and unique inserts, King fought a hard battle with Ryan Maifield in the buggy class, but ended up unchallenged at the end when Maifield retired due to mechanical troubles. King TQâ€™d and also won the truggy class driving a Sirio-powered ST-RR in front of three other ST-RR trucks.
Congratulations and thanks to Cody King and family for such an awesome performance, and for their enthusiastic support of such a worthwhile charity.
