El Paso, TX May 8-10, 2009 Tri State Off-Road Championships held at Hal's Hobby Warehouse benefitting the MDA Foundation.The loamy dirt track began to really show signs of rutting up in certain sections as qualifying finished on Saturday night. However 11 year old Tanner Stees was able to put together several good qualifying runs to put his JConcepts equipped (Tires/wheels/bodies and wings) Jammin X2 buggy and truggy into both Expert A mains.
Sunday had perfect weather and Tanner chose soft Hitmen in Buggy and Soft Cross Hairs in Truggy for the mains. A mechanical problem ended his buggy run early but in truggy the Cross Hairs were working great on the sandy blown out surface and after the 30 minute truggy main Tanner finished in the #2 spot behind "The King" Richard Saxton.
Tanner felt his tires choices were a major reason he ran so well on this surface as he ran consistent lap times lap after lap. The JConcepts tires, bodies, wheels and wings made his buggy and truggy look and perform awesome all weekend.
