This past weekend Tri-Cities RC held the Northwest Buggy Championship’s in Pasco, Washington. In the 1/8 Electric Buggy class, Tekin Team Drivers Jeremy Potter and Nick Buechler would fight hard in the 3 rounds of qualifying to start 2nd (Potter) and 3rd (Buechler) on the grid for the triple A-Mains. In A1 Potter and Nick would engage in a 3-way battle for the lead, halfway thru the main Potter would pull away from the rest for the A1 win, with Buechler locking down 2nd. In A2, once again Potter and Buechler would jump out front early on where Potter would never look back. Buechler would have a couple rough laps to finish out in 8th. In A3 with Potter on the sidelines already wrapping up the overall, Buechler would jump to the lead by the 2nd corner, but a mechanical issue would end his run where he would have to settle for a 6th overall. AE’s Chris Nealeigh would take the win in A3 and 2nd overall with Brian Munn rounding out the podium in 3rd. Both Jeremy and Nick’s Hot Bodies D812E’s were equipped with the award winning RX8 Gen 2 ESC and Tekin T8 Gen 2 Motors.
