Tekin Team Driver Clinty Riley aka “STLNLST” had a great weekend of racing. The 10th Annual Speedworld Cup was hosted at the world famous Speedworld Hobbies and Raceway in Roseville, Ca. Clint is well known in the area and finally was able to shake the monkey off his back at a major event. Many times Clint has Tq’d or near Tq at this coveted event but never able to clinch a victory. Clint started from the 2nd spot and was able to work his way around the leader to take the overall win in TC 17.5 Super Stock. Clint’s Tekin powered Hotbodies TCX was on rails all weekend.
Equipment used: Tekin RS Pro, Tekin Redline 17.5 Motor, Hotbodies TCX.
Clint, time to find a new online “handle.” I suggest “NowNfrst” Randy P.

The Munn brothers dominate the NCT series. Brian Munn locked up the Mod Truck class in round 4 held in Lewiston Idaho. Jesse Munn locked up the 2wd Mod buggy class in Rd 5 held Pasco Washington last weekend. Jesse’s cousing Brian Munn was in contention up until the 5th and final round of this 5 series best of 4 race format. The two Munn’s battled it out with a few key mistakes by Brian allowing Jesse to take the overall NCT series Championship. Brian was determined to win yet another class, 1/8 E buggy. Brian would again have a bit of a rough time in qualifying breaking out in rounds 1 and 3. Brian’s Tq’d round 2 though and was clearly in a class of his own beating the previous Tq by nearly 15 seconds! Brian would go out and win the main in dominating fashion securing his 2nd NCT Championship! Congratulations guys! This is Jesse’s 2nd year running the NCT and the 2nd straight year that I have won both the Mod 2wd and Mod 4wd championships
