Borden wins at 20th Annual Northwest Gold Cup

The 20th Annual Northwest Gold Cup at Tacoma R/C Raceway hosted by Scott Brown had strong competition and epic battles in every class offered. In 17.5 Pro Stock Buggy, Shane Borden and another fast northwest driver Tyler Miller would both get two rounds of TQs but Tyler would get the tie breaker with the extra lap. With the grid set for the triple A-mains, in A1 Tyler would lead from tone to tone to prove his TQ was no joke with a 23/6:04.6 pace. Evan Overmars and Evan Margeson would round out the top 3. A2 was slightly different as Tyler would make a mistake in the first corner allowing Shane Borden to take the lead and control it for the first half of the race. Evan Overmars would eventually catch Shane and apply the pressure causing a small mistake on the infield triple. Evan was able to pass Shane and take the win narrowly by 0.5 seconds, Evan Margeson would finish third.

A3 would be set for a showdown, with only Tyler Miller, Evan Overmars, and Shane Borden in contention for the overall it was going to come down to every tenth of a second. On lap one Tyler would once again make a mistake allowing Shane to take the lead and establish a small gap early on. Tyler was still in a solid second only a couple seconds behind first but Evan made his way around third and reeled in on second quick knowing he needed to win to lock down the overall. Tyler would crash allowing Evan to get to second. He would gain a little time on Shane in first but he had already started to check out with a three second lead and less then two minutes to go he put it on cruise control until the end winning with a 23/6:04.2 to Evans 23/6:06.6. With it coming down to a tie breaker between Shane and Evan it would be Shane who edged out Evan by only 1.7 seconds with Tyler Miller finishing third.
