Beach R/C is a brick-and-mortar hobby shop located in Myrtle Beach, SC that has gained a lot of presence in the Carolinas over the past couple years. For the past few months they have been working on an indoor track that would be highly welcomed for the upcoming winter season.

The anticipation was high, as 167 entries packed the pits Saturday morning proved. Tim Smith was on hand to represent Team Associated and Reedy in the 2WD Mod Buggy and Modified Stadium Truck classes. Tim TQ'd Mod Truck, taking a convincing win with his Factory Team RC10T4.2 in what seems to be a resurgence of the Mod Truck class.

In 2WD Buggy, Tim qualified a strong third, proving a competitive pace before the A Main kicked off around midnight. At different stages of the race, Tim, Max Flurer, and Griffin Hanna would all lead at one point, but after the mistakes panned out, it was Tim taking advantage of the easy-to-drive B5M and traction from his JConcepts rubber to put in an awesome drive and bring home the victory. Tim also commented that the drivability of his new Reedy Blackbox ESC was second to none. The B5M will go down as the first buggy to ever win at Beach R/C, a facility that is sure to be around a while.

Tim and the rest of the Southeast Team will again return to Myrtle Beach in two weeks for the always anticipated 11th annual Fall Brawl at the Badlands R/C Supercross.
