The Casino Classic race was held at the RC Tracks of Las Vegas this past weekend. While the entries were a little on the low side the racing action was taken serious by all who attended. Tekin’s Chris “18” Wheeler would take the overall TQ in the 17.5 2wd Buggy class which had the most entries. Teammate Matt Olson would sit in P2. Matt Olson was the only driver to dip into the 19 second lap range during qualifying. A single A main would see Olson jump over Wheeler in the quad section! Wheeler would try to fight back immediately in the next corner and the two would collect each other. Olson got a racers roll and the lead, Wheeler would drop back. Olson would get caught up in some traffic allowing Wheeler to catch back up and make a pass stick. The two would finish 1-2 separated by 2 seconds while James Nelson rounded out the top 3.

In the 4wd 13.5 class Olson would dominate qualifying and the A-main lapping the entire field and once again was the only driver in the 19 second lap range. Olson was the only driver to make the quad on this layout as well. James Nelson and Jason Manley rounded out the podium.

Chris Wheeler also won the 2wd Mod Buggy class in front of Kevin Kimberly in second and Richard Lake in third.
