14th Annual Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout!

Hey RC Fans! I’m coming back at ya with more race results. This time, we are taking a look at the 14th Annual Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout that took place this weekend.

The event was once again 3 days with 2 rounds of qualifying on Friday, 2 on Saturday, and triple A mains on Sunday! And it was HOT in California this weekend! It is known for being scorching hot every year, but top racers from all around still make it out for the 3 day event! The competition was fierce this year, and with it being the last big race before the 1/10th scale electric worlds in Finland, the pros were looking forward to sizing up their competition at the race.

Pro-2 short course started off the day yesterday with the first round of the triple a-mains. Jared Tebo lead the first lap and never looked back in A1.  In A2, Tebo raced again with complete domination driving his Kyosho RB-5 SC to the victory and clinching the overall win. Team Losi Racing teammates Mike Truhe and Frank Root had battled  for 2nd place the whole race, swapping positions what seemed like every corner. Truhe and Root had a rough start in A3, but it didn’t take them long to work their way back to the front where the rivalry continued. This made for an exciting and entertaining race!

As he raced it around 10 different cars and throughout the yard and road, I couldn’t help but crack a smile as I saw my 80 year old Grandma’s reaction and my mom yelling at him to stop. Then I looked the other way to see my brother in law and his family members saying things like “awesome!”, or “that thing is sweet!”.
