Over the weekend Fastlane R/C Raceway in Blue Springs, Missouri hosted the 2016 Byron Fuels Heartland Off-Road Challenge, Kyosho Factory drivers Cody King flying in from California whilst (former Byron driver) Jared Tebo also attended but now a Missouri-native. Tebo TQ’d all three qualifying rounds, Lutz lining up 2nd and Cody 3rd.

It proved to be a tone-to-tone victory for Tebo as he dominated the main final, King and Lutz swapping positions to complete a 1,2 for Kyosho and Pro-Line, Lutz coming home in 3rd ensuring a majority Byron podium at their home event.

Strangely considering the ‘Fuel sponsored’ event, an E-Buggy class was held – Tebo would go on to win & TQ with Seth van Dalen 2nd and Kyle Skidmore 3rd.
