Venue:  BIGFOOT 4×4, Inc.

2016 Summer Event #1 Hot But Fun!

The first race of the 2016 Trigger King R/C Summer Series was hot, very hot, but it was also a lot of fun!  The heat did not deter a good crowd of R/C monster truckers from making their way to BIGFOOT 4×4, Inc.  The day topped out at about 99 degrees but with the help on some canopies and industrial fans, it was cool enough to put on a great event.

The first course of the day was a large S-course design where the finish line was jumping a curb into the grass directly in the front of the BIGFOOT building.  The course proved tricky at first, but as drivers got a handle on it, the racing got very tight.  Newcomer Dan Ryan, with his cool big rig monster called “Pete” did quite well, making it all the way to the semi-finals before being taken out by RH Designs’ Ross Hinshaw in Bad Habit.  The other semi-finals round paired TK architects Doug Welker in his Green Monster and Chris Blank in his Ragin’ Orange.  Chris just edged out Doug making a Blank and Hinshaw final.  Hinshaw beat out Blank taking his first ever TK modified racing bracket!
