Brian Kinwald Wins S.I.G.P.


“Brian Kinwald TQed and won the modified buggy class at the recent Southwest Invitational G.P. held this past weekend at Competition Hobbies in Tucson, Ariz. Qualifying was by fastest single run and Kinwald took TQ by the smallest of margins in the last qualifier. Then Brian took the Championship with his X – 6 Squared in a closely fought single-A main. The challenging lay-out was typical for the S.I.G.P. and this year featured a cross-over jump that went over the main straight! Traction is always high at C.H. and the S.I.G.P. was no exception. Good lay-outs with high traction and great drivers always makes for an exciting race. Two other X-Team drivers attended the race, with Chance Chapel and Alex Krieg also in the A driving the X – 6 Squared. Several Family members made the trip to Tucson, finishing in the B main. Kinwald also TQed pro 2WD short course in his SCX – 60. Again there was a very close main, this time with Kinwald leading on the last lap before a small mistake sent him to second.”
