Chico, CA. June 2, 2019—AMainHobbies hosted the Third annual Manufacturers’ Cup present by Tekin at the world-famous Silver Dollar RC Raceway. The race pitted the top pros against one another in four heads-up 14-minute races. Many of the elite drivers were in attendance including: Ryan Maifield, Adam Drake, Spencer Rivkin, Alex Kosciuszek, Broc Champlin, CJ Jelin, Phillip Atondo, Mason Eppley and Kyle Layton,
The pros results were combined with open class drivers using the same chassis to determine the overall manufacturer champion. “Moto style” starts were also a key element to the Manufacturers’ Cup. Racers would blast down the front straightaway to the first corner vying for the holeshot—surprisingly, most of the starts were clean thanks to a uniquely shaped starting grid. The decision to depart from a traditional IFMAR style race was made to provide more excitement for both the racers and spectators—It worked again for the 3rd year!
