Awesomatix USA is proud to announce that Josh Cyrul is joining as a racer for the 2014 season. Josh brings along his long history of racing experience to help strengthen the Awesomatix USA Team. Josh's first race will be at the 2014 Snowbird Nationals.
Josh had this to say:
"I want to give a HUGE THANKS to Mike Hanulec and Oleg Babich for putting things together for me so fast for this year's Snowbird Nationals. I inquired to Mike about Awesomatix after hearing rave reviews from Danny Strasser at Apex R/C, as well as seeing the great size and just great people that he had been able to pull together into his US team so quickly. I was impressed with the car, the designs but most importantly the people and dedication to making Awesomatix a front running name in the TC market. I am very proud to join their team and looking forward to some great races in the near future!!"
This past weekend Team Awesomatix USA took on their local ROAR Regional Carpet Championships and won the 17.5T Touring Car classes.

Horsham RC in Horsham, PA held a one day race for the Region 2 Championship. Mike Gee, starting from 3rd made his way past Jeff Cuffs and then set his sights on the TQ Sal Amato. At the 4:30 mark Sal tapped out in the sweeper allowing Mike to cruse to the win.
Awesomatix drivers from the Northwest USA and Canada had great result at Round 5 of the Western Canadian Indoor Championship Series (WCICS) held by IROCC (Victoria) & NRC (Nanaimo RC), Victoria, BC, Canada. With 220 entries running in 8 different classes, there where 24 entries in Mod TC, and 36 in stock TC. The three day indoor carpet event featured only one set of sweep QTS tires over four qualifiers and one single main.
In Stock TC Awesomatix Drivers finished 1st and 3rd. Mike Malkinson with his A700L USA Spec driving rock solid the entire weekend took TQ and under intense pressure never gave up his position for the win. Frank Bortolazzo did a great job as well, finishing 3rd.
In the Awesomatix Sponsored Mod Touring car class, Kody Knudtson placed 2nd in qualifying and finished 2nd. Kody drove very well with the new A700 Evo USA Spec chassis, at times leading qualifying runs and maintaining pressure on the winner , Canada's Keven Hebert of Associated. Awesomatix driver Blake Bell also finished on the podium, considering he was race directing and was a significant part of putting on the event, it was quite an achievement to finish 3rd. Four Awesomatix Drivers were in the Mod TC A main : Kody Knudtson Finished 2nd, Blake Bell 3rd, Korgae Scales 7th, Jake Danilchik finished 10th.
