Team Axial Driver Nathan Eells Wins 2009 WCC Qualifier

I made the trip up to Lucia Falls in Washington for the first Axial West Coast Championship Qualifier this past weekend. Winning this comp gets you a paid ride into the Axial West Coast Championships in Donner California, one of the biggest, baddest R/C rock crawling events of the year!! Axial Team Driver Nathan Eells (aka Tanis on RCCrawler.com) and his SWX chassis walked away with the win, and paid invite for the 2009 WCC event. Congrats again Nathan on an awesome victory over some of the best drivers in the nation. Look for the full write-up on the event with tons of pictures soon right here on Axial’s Blog. Also keep an eye out for the announcement of Axial’s full team of drivers as well.
