Kyle Johnson Wins Short Course 4×4 Class At 2011 Silver State Short Course Championships

May 11, 2011 No Comments by

702 Raceway in Las Vegas, Nevada provides the setting for the annual Silver State Short Course Championships. For the 2nd annual event the crew put on a fantastic show with a brand new first class layout and together with race director Notch from West Coast Raceway, provided non-stop racing all weekend long.

The Short Course 4×4 class was highly contested all weekend long. Kyle Johnson with his Losi SCT-E truck with JConcepts Subcultures tires took TQ in the first round and held onto the fastest time throughout the weekend placing the truck on the pole position for the A-main.

As the last race of the day lined up and the tone sounded it was Kyle taking a quick start ahead of the 2wd champion Steve Antill. Just as it looked all weekend long Kyle’s truck was hooked up with the Green compound Subcultures and he was out front and maintaining a great leaders pace. Steve applied pressure for the first half of the race and looked to the inside on several occasions but Kyle remained sharp. A mistake and problems with traffic in the 6-pack section by Antill allowed Kyle to open a large lead. Crossing the finish line in style, Kyle celebrated with a well deserved victory earning the Silver State title. Rounding out the top 3 Steve Antill Finished in 2nd with Daniel Fry in 3rd.

Congratulations to all the winners and 702 Raceway on another outstanding event. See you next year.
