On June 13th and 14th, Tri-Cities RC hosted the 1st annual Northwest Buggy Championships in Pasco, Washington. This race was a gathering of all buggys across the great northwest of the United States to crown the 1st ever “King of the Hill” in 2014. This particular race ranged from all buggys including 1/8 E-buggys, SC buggys, 2wd buggys, 4wd buggys, vintage buggys, and finally 1/8th nitro buggys.
Overall, it was a fantastic display of the different types of racing buggys that allowed racers to showcase the technical skills required to pilot these agile, and often fragile, vehicles to the podium. The “King of the Hill” was decided among racers participating in 2wd Mod, 4wd Mod, 1/8 E-buggy, and 1/8 nitro buggy. The racer with the 2 best combined results in any of these particular classes were eligible to take home the overall trophy and claim “2014 King of the Hill” in this bugtastic race!
When it was all said and done, it would be Team Kyosho’s Jesse Munn who would be crowned the “King of the Hill.” Munn clenched the title by winning both 4wd Mod Buggy and 1/8 Nitro Buggy classes.
