Ryan Cavalieri sweeps CRCRC Midwest Championships

The 29th annual CRCRC Winter Midwest Championships were held at The Ohio R/C Factory in Jeffersonville, Ohio this past weekend. Ryan Cavalieri (Team Associated) and Jared Tebo (Kyosho) would battle it out for the overall TQ in the Modified Buggy classes with the better end for Ryan who would grab the pole position for both the 2WD and 4WD Modified Buggy classes. Ryan would then also snatch the TQ for the 2WD Modified SCT class while Jared came out fastest in Modified Truck to start the finals from the 1 spot.

In the 2WD Modified Buggy finals Ryan started with a 3 seconds win over Jared Tebo and he would also come out successful in A2 to take the overall win early. Ryan than sat out A3 which was won by Jared Tebo from newly-signed Team Durango driver JP Richards who would round out the podium behind runner-up Tebo.

The 4WD Modified Buggy class saw a bit more drama for the pole setter as Ryan scored a DNF in A1 after having to retire his Team Associated buggy some two laps into the race. This made way for Jared Tebo (Kyosho) who took the win in  the opening A-main from Travis Amezcua (Team Durango). A2 and A3 then were a clean affair for Ryan who took two wins from JP Richards (Team Durango) to take his second title of the weekend. JP Richards would grab the runner-up spots in the second and third A-main from Jared Tebo with both ending tie on points after the finals. The better tie-breaker though would hand Jared the overall second place from JP.
