2017 Tekin Fall Brawl

Over the weekend of October 21st, 160 entries from all over Northern California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Arizona converged on the Silver Dollar RC Raceway Raceway, located in Chico, CA to battle in 12 different divisions at the 2017 Tekin Fall Brawl including the First Family of RC Cup. With this being the final big race of the year at the AMain RC Tracks turnout was great. Fall starts the migration of racers back to the tracks and racers trying to one up their resumes for the next year hence laying the path to 2017 Tekin Fall Brawl.

After one packed day of practice, 34 qualifying heats, 18 main events, 160 entries and 2 days of action on the track, the 2017 edition of the Fall Brawl is now in the books, and what a weekend of racing it was. Racers started to show up as early as 10:00 a.m. on Friday morning to get their first laps on the new turf 1/10th and 1/8th dirt layout. Practice and racing didnt end till Saturday 9pm. The layouts where fast, fun, racy and consisted of two separate tracks one turf and one dirt. The turf layout was a hit with all the racers as while the 1/8th ran quals on the dirt track the turf track was open all day for tuning. This ensured everyone got plenty of track time as Nitro got longer mains also. The layout made for some of the best racing action we’ve seen at at the new redesigned Silver Dollar RC Raceway. The raceway has been redesigned to support both 1/10-scale on the turf and 1/8-scale on the dirt.1/10th electric classes only needed to marshal 1/10th and 1/8th for the most part was only needed to marshal 1/8th. This was well received by both classes of racers.

Friday would consist of a full day of practice from 10am to 9pm allowing racers to get really dialed in and to get back and get some sleep at a decent time before Saturday qualifiers and mains started. Friday would start with open practice at 10:00 a.m. when drivers would get their first opportunity on the turf and dirt layouts. Drivers would spend the day hard at work figuring out the best lines and setups in hopes of making one of Saturday’s A finals. The turf tracks was super fast and racey seeing 1/10th scale lap times in the low 17’s and 1/8th dirt track times  in the low 30’s. By mid afternoon open practice had turned to packed opened practice as more drivers started to arrive and prepare for the weekend of competition that lay ahead of them. Signups  would keep piling in throughout the day and into the night.

Saturday morning came early with doors opening at 7am. There were a few drivers still showing up for their first practice laps as everyone else was trying to get their last few laps before the start of qualifying. Race directors Shane Mouton and KJ at 10:00am would kick off 2 rounds of qualifying with great informative announcing allowing the racers to put down fair qualifying using the IFMAR live loop start process. Racers would work together in this format to put an effort at their one best runs out of two to seed them into their main events. Qualifying would go on all day till two rounds where complete and this would start the main events.

Main events started early mid Saturday afternoon and now the amazing race announcing of Shane Mouton would really be heard. Shane combined with a second set of eyes of KJ would observe most of the main events to ensure clean, exciting racing would take place . Racers would do an amazing job of policing themselves when incidents would happen and this made for some of the cleanest and best main races seen to date at Silver Dollar RC raceway. Some exciting finishes and lots of last lap passes would go down keeping the spectators entertained all day. Mains would finish up early in the evening and the awards presentation would take place with photos of top threes in typical AMain Performance Hobbies fashion.

The Tekin Fall Brawl First Family of RC trophy has been updated with the winners from the event. AMain Performance Hobbies and the sponsors would like to congratulate Francis and Jaden Tiu  on the First Family of RC win. This is their third year on the trophy as the winners.
