Tebo, Neumann, and Maifield stand out through opening rounds of the Cactus Classic

Morning cloud cover gave way to crystal clear blue skies for the opening round of the 28th Annual Cactus Classic, with both the racing action and temperature climbing throughout the morning.

Sneak Peek: Pro-Line’s New Phantom for the Associated B5M

Pro-Line’s latest labor of lexan is this stealthy-looking design for Associated’s hot RC10B5M mid-motor car. No official details yet, but it’s easy to spot the steering-enhancing cab-forward design, multi-level reinforced wing, and the steep kickup to the side pods as they meet the transmission–should be good for downforce. You can count on window masks, overspray […]
