Round 1 of CTS3 was held at Rise Up Hobbytown in Palm Desert, California this past weekend. The inaugural race for the facility was perfect and designed well. For Modified Touring, it was Team Xray driver JJ Wang who showed a dominant performance clinching the TQ honors and A-main followed by Awesomatix driver Brandon Clements and defending Champion Rick Hohwart.
In 17.5 Touring Spec it was Brandon Clements who left a statement leaving the competition almost two laps down. His Awesomatix TC had excellent rip and corner speed. JD Ramsey came in 2nd and Ryan Cooper (Team Associated) rounded out the top 3.
In USGT Clayton Young from Maryland came to his first CTS race and gave the Cali locals a run for their money in the main. Juan Aveytia led the entire race while TQ Clayton closed the gap then to drive around Juan’s mistake.
In Formula Brandon Clements had the whole field covered and he took home an easy win.
