The 2016 Reedy Touring Car Race of Champions was held this past weekend at the Tamiya Raceway in Aliso Viejo, California. While Ronald Völker walked away with the win in the Invitational class it was Cristian Lopez who took the victory in 13.5T Stock. Keith Yu, Eric Anderson and the UK’s Jimmy Maddison set the early pace along with local Cristian and it was Keith who took the overall TQ spot after the qualifiers. The triple A-main events were rather eventful with Cristian Lopez taking A1, Keith Yu in A2 and Cristian again in A3 to lock up the win. Keith Yu would be second overall with Eric Anderson rounding out the podium.
In 17.5T Stock it was Kevin Smith who set the pace early and often. After four rounds of qualifying Kevin Smith was able to TQ 17.5 tot start on the P1 spot. After a small mistake at the start he would finish the 1st main in 2nd. For A2 and A3 there would be no doubt. Kevin made no mistakes and took convincing wins to secure the overall victory from Albert Benavidez and Mike Rydwell.
