Kyosho's Jesse Munn takes 2 @ North-West Buggy Champs!
Race Report By Kyosho Team Driver Jesse Munn:
This past weekend I competed in the North-West Buggy Championships in Pasco, Washington. It was a 2 day event with Friday being a practice day and Saturday consisting of 3 rounds of qualifying with the qual points format, then triple A-Mains for electric and a 20 minute nitro main in the evening.

While the overall turnout was a little less than expected, the quality of drivers in attendance was great and the racing was intense! Still a long day with open practice starting at 7:00am Saturday and the last mains at 10:30pm. Then a 4 1/2 hour drive home put me in bed at 3:30 Sunday morning!

4wd Modified Buggy 
I TQ'd both of the first 2 rounds to secure the overall top qualifier position without having to run the 3rd round. In the triple A Mains I went 3,1,1 to take the overall win! The Kyosho Lazer ZX5-SP was great! Here is the overall finish order:

1/8 Nitro Buggy
In this class I also TQ'd the first 2 rounds of qualifying to wrap up the overall TQ. In the 20 minute main I led every single lap and won by about 16 seconds over local racer Darren Shank and TLR's Darren Hill. The MP9 TKI3 was awesome all weekend.
