The 24th Annual CRCRC Electric Midwest Championships were held at The R/C Factory in Jeffersonville, Ohio. This would be the first year for event to be held in this new location. The facility was very big providing plenty of heated pits for everyone that attended. The track was very challenging consisting of very high speed sections along with technical jumps. This years event brought in over 380 entries around the country.

The race format consisted of 4 5-minute qualifiers on Saturday, taking each drivers 2 best points toward their overall qualifying order. Then Sunday would run triple A-Mains for all classes to decide this years champions.

In the 2wd Modified Buggy Class it was Kyosho’s Jared Tebo who would go onto TQ overall with his Team Orion powered Kyosho Ultima RB5-SP2.
