Now in its 9th year, the International Indoor Championships (IIC) has become an unrivaled RC racing extravaganza. Top drivers from around the world gathered at the classic Riviera Hotel & Casino to battle for the newly introduced IIC championship belt. Race organizer Scotty Ernst once again created a challenging layout while Sin City provided plenty of after-hours activities for those that wanted to put the day’s racing activities behind them. Reedy/AE factory driver Keven Hébert won the 1/12 Modified and Super Stock 13.5 TC classes last year and was looking to make it two in a row. After four hard-fought rounds of qualifying, Keven started on the pole position in Super Stock 13.5 and in the third position in 1/12 Modified. Driving his Reedy-powered 12R5.2, Hébert took control of the 1/12 Modified A-final just past the one-minute mark and never looked back. With no serious challenges, he was able to comfortably win the class for the second year in a row and claim the IIC championship belt. The pole position start in Super Stock 13.5 TC allowed Keven to drive his Reedy-powered TC6.1 Factory Team prototype to an early lead. Unchallenged, Keven took the wire-to-wire win to earn his second championship belt of the weekend and second class win in a row.
