Mike Malkinson TQ + Win at Round 5 of Western Canadian Indoor Championship Series

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.
