Rick Hohwart Wins CenCal Challenge 5
(Pictured: Mod TC podium: 1st Rick Hohwart, 2nd EJ Evans, 3rd Lex Tyler)
The CenCal Challenge, now in its fifth year, has become one of the most coveted titles on the West Coast. Thanks to its Central California location, racers from throughout the state and as far as Oregon and Arizona made the trek to the permanent track in Fresno -- the "Raisin Capital of the World." Hot weather and a challenging circuit combined to put racers and their machines to the ultimate test.
In the Modified TC class, Rick Hohwart and his Reedy-powered and Protoform-bodied Awesomatix A800MMX started out on top in the controlled practice round and never looked back. Rick set the fastest time in each of the three qualifying rounds to grab the pole position and went on to victories in A1 and A2 to take the win.
