Hudson On Top At Northwest Championship Tour Round #1
The outdoor season is finally upon us here in the Pacific Northwest. The Northwest Championship Tour (NCT) kicked off round #1 in Wenatchee, WA with close to 200 entries coming from Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and parts of Canada.
Team Associated/Reedy/LRP team driver Mike Hudson qualified second in the highly competitive 2WD Modified Buggy class with his Factory Team B4.1 Worlds Edition, fourth in Modified Truck with his Factory Team T4.1 after having issues, and ninth in 4WD Modified with his Factory Team B44.1 with even more issues.
Come main day, Mike managed to win the first leg of triple A mains in Modified Truck, second in 2WD Buggy and managed a very hard-fought third place in 4WD Buggy coming all the way from nonth on the grid. The second leg of A mains went very well as he won the 2WD Buggy main and finished second in Truck Modified and 4WD Modified mains. With all of the titles still on the line going into the final set of A mains, Mike pulled out a decisive win in the 2WD Buggy main along with a tight battle in the Truck Modified main, taking the win by .2 seconds to take the overall titles in those classes. Also taking a respectable third place overall in 4WD to take the last step on the box. Privateer Nick Buechler took home the win in 4X4 SC with his Factory Team SC104X4.
A special thanks to the RCCCW crew for the hard work and dedication and a trouble free race weekend. Next stop is in Spokane, WA for the 26th Annual Hank Perry 240.
