Cody King A Revelation At Kyosho Falls Classic
This year’s Kyosho Fall Classic was once again held at Revelation Raceway in Ontario, CA. The weather was perfect all weekend long being in the mid to upper 70’s. When pulling into Revelation Raceway, it was very apparent that this was a Kyosho Event not just a race with all the red and white Kyosho banners posted throughout the pit area and track. Kyosho America’s employees were all on-hand both days of the race with displays of their most popular and new vehicles, like the new Inferno VE, DBX VE and Mad Force Kruiser. A DNANO try me track was also set up for everyone to try.
Throughout qualifying and main events, Kyosho had demo time set up on the track where people attending the event could come up to the drivers stand and drive the new 1:8 Inferno VE and Inferno DBX. This was a big hit with everyone. The track layout was awesome with many challenging high speed and rhythm sections that tested even the best drivers.
The total entries this year was well over last years event showing the continued growth of 1:8 off-road racing in SoCal. Along with Team Kyosho drivers attending: Team Associated, Hot Bodies, Mugen, Team Losi, Tamiya, and CEN all had drivers come out to support this race. A big thank you to all our race sponsors for supporting and making this years Kyosho Fall Classic such a success. Special thanks to: AKA – KO-Propo – Byron Fuel – OS Engines – Futaba – Airtronics – ABC Hobby USA – Peak Racing – Revelation Raceway.
Kyosho’s Cody King went on to TQ and Win the highly contested 1:8 Nitro Pro Buggy Class. Cody also finished second in Pro Truggy and third in Pro Electric Buggy landing on the podium in all three classes he competed in making it a great weekend as Kyosho’s top driver at the event.
