7 Victories For Team Associated at the JConcepts Winter Indoor NationalsFebruary 24, 2017
Event Name: JConcepts Winter Indoor Nationals
Event Location: Smac Trac Indoor Raceway, St. Charles, MO
Event Date(s): February 10, 2017 to February 12, 2017
The 2017 JConcepts Indoor National Series kicked off with the traditional winter round at Smac Trac Indoor Raceway just outside of St. Louis, MO. As one of the original venues to host the popular series, Smac Trac drew over 300 entries to jump start the seventh year of the popular series.
Heading to the central U.S track to represent Team Associated and Reedy Powered were racers from around the country including Alex Kosciuszek from Connecticut, Tommy Hinz and Kamryn Ayers from Arizona, Daimon Borkowicz and Jason Ruona from Florida, and Team Manager Brent Thielke from California, along with a host of other representatives from within a few hours' drive.
As qualifying got underway, the competition was tight. With such a short and tight track, lap times were under 16 seconds for the fastest drivers and the narrow lanes made passing challenging. With turn marshals blowing off the racing surface between every heat, the surface stayed consistent and groomed throughout the event.
As the dust settled and the awards were given out, Team Associated claimed seven titles and Reedy Powered claimed six. Taking victories for Team Associated were:
Alex Kosciuszek - 4WD Modified Buggy, B64D
Alex Kosciuszek - 2WD Modified Short Course, SC5M
Aydin Horne - 2WD Modified JConcepts Spec, B6
Allen Horne - 40+ 2WD Modified Buggy, B6
Dreighton Staub - 2WD 17.5 Buggy, B6
Scotty Ernst - 2WD Stadium Truck, T5M
Kyle Layton - 4WD 13.5 Buggy, B44.3
Thanks to everyone from the Smac Trac facility and to JConcepts for hosting the first round of the 2017 JConcepts Indoor National Series. Up next, the Spring Indoor Nationals in Tacoma R/C Raceway in Tacoma, WA in May.
