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.

Scott Robert wins RC Mania Race

See: Tekin

The 2017 RC Mania race is a unique event as it is molded after a wrestling survivor series, two days on two different tracks, no podiums, just an overall champ of that class. After two rounds of qualifying Tekin driver Scott Robert had set TQ in both Mod 2wd buggy and Mod 4wd Buggy. In the 4wd A main Scott would lead the race with a decent lead until he would hit a pipe pin on the drop down on the left side of the track breaking an arm limping around the track to finish second, but would retain overall champ for that class. In 2wd, Scott focused again on clean consistent laps not crashing once the whole race which gave him a cushion to drive clean and win from the start.
