TQ is TQ at Spektrum Championship!
For the weekend warrior, stock class is the choice at tracks around the country on a weekly basis. TQ once again showed that its SX10 series gives a racer the advantage needed when the competition is close. Having already won the 2010 ROAR Stock National Championship in 2wd and finishing 2nd at the Nationals in Stock Short Course, TQ is quickly becoming a weapon for local stock racers everywhere.
TQ had 3 drivers and one customer qualify in the top 10 of the 2wd Stock class at the recent Spektrum Championship at the Famous Trackside Hobbies. Mike “Zippy” Ziolkowski won 3 of the 4 rounds of qualifying. Colton Kruse, a TQ customer won the other round. Qualifying was so close that the last round of qualifying was determined by .4 of a second, on the last lap of the last run in the class. Zippy and Colton were joined in the 2wd Stock A Main by Cory Podoski and Ray Kindstrom. While the Zippy won one of the triple A Mains, a second and a forth left him second overall. Cory finished 6th, Colton 7th and Ray 8th.
Another customer Aric Seffrood, showed the pace of the SX10 T in the Stock Truck class by TQ’ing the Stock Truck class and winning the triple A Main format. This was Aric’s first weekend with the SX10T!!! Saying “it has more turn in than then anything.”Whether the wheels are big or small the sharp handling of the SX10 series gave the drivers and control they needed to be quick and consistent over an entire race distance.
Cory Crosley (the 2010 ROAR Stock SC National Champion) qualified 9th overall in the Modified Short Course class with a field full of factory drivers. With the unique format of the Spektrum Championship, only the top 8 qualified for the A Main with 2 bump spots available. Cory had to race his way through the B Main to bump into the A Main. After winning the B Main it was on to the main event. Starting at the back of the field, Cory worked his way up to finish a racy 5th place behind some big name factory drivers a former world champion.
