Congratulations to Josh Cyrul for Top Qualifying and Winning both World GT Expert Modified and 12th Scale 13.5 at this year's 10th Anniversary International Indoor Championships! Josh, his World GT4 and Rev.8 were pretty much untouchable all week long. He TQ'd every round of qualifying in both classes and won both A-Mains wire to wire. In 12th scale, Josh piloted his Rev.8 to TQ with the only 45 lap run in the class, taking fast lap by a tenth. He then backed that TQ up by doing the only 45 lapper in the Main, for the flawless win. In Expert World GT Mod, Josh's World GT4 was just scary fast. In fact, his World GT lap times would have easily put him in the top half of the 12th scale Modified A-Main! In the A-Main Josh lapped everyone up to 2nd place, and his fast lap of 9.6 seconds was FOUR TENTHS quicker the 2nd place Hupo Honigl's 10.0. Josh went on to do the only 31 lap run of the week in that class also. As always, thank you to all of the sponsors that support Josh and SpeedMerchant...

Congratulations to SpeedMerchant team driver Donny Lia bringing home the hardware in 1/12th 13.5 Pro Stock at this year's SnowBird Nationals held in sunny Orlando Florida. The unique 24-hour format race features Road Course and Oval broken up into 12-hour intervals and has attendance of up to 500 race entries every year. Due to work commitments, Donny wasn't able to fly down to the race until Wednesday evening, missing all of the organized road course practice. Using the race qualifiers for gathering your set-up information is never ideal, but sometimes it's your only option. Donny's Rev.7 was quickly on pace and his SpeedMerchant "New School" front suspension was carving up the track. After some small tweaks early Sunday morning, we knew we had the car to beat in the A-main later that day. The race went well and Donny's Rev.7 assumed the lead over Corally's Ray Darroch and CRC's Andrew Knapp around the 3-minute mark. After that, Donny put it on cruise control, fending off one attack by Jason Schreffler and bringing home the win with a comfortable 2-second lead. In 1/12th 17.5 class Steven Boice drove his Rev.7 up to a 2nd place finish in the A-main. Steve runs a box stock Rev.7 Sport, and only races 12th scale twice a year, so to finish at the top of one of the most highly contested classes at the Birds is really quite remarkable. Steve and Team Associated's Joe Trandell had a great battle for the top spot that lasted most of the A-main. Both drivers held 1st place at some point during the race, and in the end it was Joe taking the win by a scant 3-tenths of a second. Steve also joined Donny in both the World GT & 12th 13.5 Pro Stock A-mains. A big thanks to our sponsors: JACO Racing, Protoform Bodies, Team Trinity, Xenon Racing, EA Motorsports, Horizon Hobbies, Team Tamale & TQ Wire. Source: Speedmerchant
