Round #2 of the 2017 JConcepts Indoor Nationals made its annual stop at Tacoma R/C Raceway in Tacoma, WA for the Spring Indoor Nationals. Now in its seventh year of existence, the popular series continues to draw racers from all over the country. Team Associated was lead by four-time World Champion Ryan Cavalieri, who made his first trip to Tacoma R/C Raceway. Also making the trip to the Pacific Northwest was reigning 2WD World Champion Spencer Rivkin, Reedy Powered’s Dustin Evans, and Team Manager Brent Thielke.
260+ entries enjoyed a fast-paced event, what with three qualifiers, extended A mains, and triple A mains for the two premier classes, 2WD and 4WD Modified. Keeping everything on schedule was track owner and former ROAR 4WD National Champion, Scott Brown.
After a slow start for him, Ryan Cavalieri dropped the hammer in qualifying and secured the top qualifying position in 2WD, 4WD and Truck Modified. Also taking a TQ was Spencer Rivkin in Modified 2WD Short Course, Brent Thielke in 40+ 2WD Buggy, Rudy Rico in 13.5 4WD Buggy, and Dreighton Stoub in 17.5 2WD Buggy.
With great races throughout the main events, all of the top qualifiers were able to convert their qualifying positions into victories. Although a few up-and-coming Team Associated drivers didn’t get victories, they turned in highlight performances: Harley Yoshi, Luke Smith, Kamryn Ayers, Aydin and Austin Horne. Keep up the great work, team! #WeAreAE
