See: Team Associated 

The 25th running of the Reedy International Off-Road Race of Champions took place over the weekend of January 24-27, 2019, at OCRC Raceway in Huntington Beach, CA, and brings together a unique group of racers. With a separate category for Invitational drivers, the Open class gives an opportunity for up-and-coming drivers to shine in the spotlight. In the 4WD Open category it was Team Associated’s Ron DeVoll who started in the fourth position that would put on a racing clinic. Patience and sheer speed saw R.DeVoll work his way to the front of the double A Mains to secure victories and the overall title. XRAY driver Tommy Hinz came in second while Factory Tracks Racing’s Austin Horne finished a respectable third place, just beating out Team Associated teammate Blake Champlin on a tiebreaker.

Race Report by Tommy Hinz (XRAY) :

This past week I was able to attend the 2019 Reedy Race of Champions held at world famous OCRC Raceway. The track crew and shop once again outdid themselves on this historic event remembering the legend Mike Reedy. Wednesday was my travel/ open practice day. I left early morning and arrived at the track around noon time. I was able to line my bags up at the door and was first in line! I walked inside and was able to help with a few finishing touches for the event, and check out the track surface and layout. At 3pm the doors opened and we all scrambled in to set up our pits and anxiously get onto the green track. I went out for practice first with my XB219D and it felt pretty solid. As practice went on I threw my XB419 out for a test drive and she was ripping some fast laptimes from the start. We had open practice for 5 hours, 3pm-8pm. I ran my 4wd for 2 practice runs and felt it was on pace with setup to be fast. As the track progressed the front step on step off gained some character, and I needed to make a few changes to my 2wd to manage the jump better. After 4 practice runs with my 2wd I felt comfortable and was able to clean my cars and prep them for the seeding runs on Thursday. At 8pm at the conclusion of practice the open class got their handout tires and was able to mount them at the hotel that night. I also bought an extra set so I was prepared for later in the event.

Race report by Ty Tessmann:

“This past weekend I race the Offroad Reedy Race of Champions, at OCRC in Huntington Beach, CA. The top drivers in the world are invited to participate in the Invite portion of the event which is comprised of 6 rounds of heads up racing for each 2WD and 4WD, your top 5 finishes from each class are counted for the combined total and that is how the winner is determined. The track layout was very challenging, there were 2 very demanding triples along a rythym section and a whoops section all these parts combined made it very hard to clean consistent laps. Everyone in the invite class was limited to 3 practice runs for each car.
