Eight Victories For Team Associated at the JConcepts Summer Indoor NationalsJuly 15, 2016
Event Name: JConcepts Summer Indoor Nationals
Event Location: Outback Raceway, Chico, CA
Event Date(s): July 9, 2016 to July 10, 2016
The 2016 JConcepts Summer Indoor Nationals made its annual stop at Outback Raceway in Chico, CA. With A-Main closing their indoor track and moving all racing to their outdoor facility at Silver Dollar R/C Raceway, this was the final event ever for Outback Raceway. Team Associated was on hand to support the event with Team Associated/Reedy Powered's World Champion Spencer Rivkin leading the charge.
As practice began on Friday, the track was already up to speed and slicks were the tire of choice: JConcepts Smoothies, for most. With a seeding round of practice setting the heat order for Saturday's three rounds of qualifying, each round was completed in about four hours, making for a long, but manageable event.
As the dust settled and main events began, Team Associated driver Spencer Rivkin found his way to the top qualifying spot in 2WD, 4WD and Truck Modified, as did Brent Thielke in 40+ 2WD Modified Buggy and Kamryn Ayers in 2WD 17.5 Short Course. Both Spencer and Brent used the just-released B6D in their buggy classes, while Spencer used the T5M in Truck and B44.3 in 4WD, with Kamryn driving her SC5M.
Each of the Top Qualifiers were able to convert their #1 starting position into victories, as did Kyle Layton in 2WD 17.5 Buggy, Nick Miller in 2WD 17.5 Truck and Douglas Hobbs in 4WD 13.5 Buggy. All of this adds up to a total of eight victories for Team Associated and a dominant team performance.
Thank you to everyone from A-Main and the Outback Raceway facility for being such great hosts and ambassadors for R/C racing. All of us at Team Associated wish them luck in their new venture at their outdoor location and look forward to supporting their future events.
