Denney Leads Team Associated to 3 Titles at the Short Course Showdown Tour Stop #2May 7, 2012
Event Name: Short Course Showdown Nationwide Tour Stop #2
Event Location: Competition Hobbies, Tucson, AZ
Event Date(s): April 28, 2012 to April 29, 2012
The second stop on the Scotty Ernst Production, Short Course Showdown Nationwide Tour, made it's way to Arizona and Competition Hobbies in Tucson, AZ. This is the first trip for the popular Short-Course-only series to the premier indoor facility. Known for high grip and layouts with lots of elevation changes, the "CH" layout didn't disappoint.
In the 2WD Modified Short Course class it was Team Associated's Brian Kinwald who set the pace in qualifying. Starting in a 2x2 formation, the start of the single main event was extremely important. With a good start, from the third row, Team Associated/Reedy/LRP's Tanner Denney found himself towards the front of the field racing for the win. As the time ticked off the clock, Kinwald and Denney checked out from the field to race for the win. With a solid last few laps it was Denney who came out on top, but the real winners were the fans.
The two Factory Team SC10s of Kinwald and Denney treated the crowd to a great race. Also taking home victories for Team Associated were Dave Duncan from JConcepts in the 2WD 17.5 Short Course class and Brandon Fox in the 2WD 13.5 Short Course class. Both drivers used Team Associated SC10s. Thanks to Competition Hobbies, Scotty, and his crew for a great event, and congratulations on a successful Short Course Showdown Nationwide Tour debut in Arizona.
