Trinity Monster Horsepower Motor Series Dominates On-Road Classes at IIC!!!

10-7-16 Las Vegas, Nevada

For the first time I made the trip to the Scotty Ernst’s IIC Championships in Las Vegas! I don’t know why it took me so long but if you are thinking about going to this event, don’t make the same mistake I did. Don’t wait! It is without a doubt one of the best races I have ever attended. In my 36 years of business with trips all over the world, I have never experienced the promoter opening the race door each morning himself and welcoming each and every racer. We all felt “like we were in this together”. There is no higher compliment I can give Scotty Ernst. Great Job!

This is was the first race Trinity used our new R.O.A.R. approved Monster Horsepower (TEP1701 13.5) and TEP1702 (17.5) motors. With very little testing on these in on-road we brought motor-guru Jim Dieter in to complete all the final tuning. To say Jim and the Monster were successful would be a vast understatement. They dominated the event.

For the new 6.5 Modified Class we used our 24K (6.5T)  REV1816 modified motors.

A great introduction for the new Trinity Monster Horsepower Series Motors! Andrew Knapp won all 3 classes 13.5 plus TQ (with Knapp 1st, Ray Darroch 2nd, and Hupo Honiji 4th place and 5 out of 10 in the main)

In 17.5 Andrew Knapp lead a 1-2 sweel with the TEP1502 (17.5)

In the Modified 6.5 class Trinity had 4 out of 10 in the A-Main with our 24K REV1816.
