Christmas is right around the corner marking the end of my primary 2015 racing season. Now is the time I get to catch up on all my administrative work, and family time, as well as reflect on the year that was.
2015 was by far the best year of my R/C Career. If you have been keeping tabs with me, I have been keeping my Tekno Tally at the end of each blog post. That does include the final two events of 2014. So this is my overall results since joining with Tekno RC.
Tekno Tally (My results with Tekno RC)
Classes Entered- 82
Wins- 46 (56%)
TQ- 41 (50%)
Podium- 72 (88%)
A-Main- 81 (99%)
Now I want to recap some of 2015’s best results for me:
-Out of 5 classes entered at ROAR Nationals, I got 5 x top 5’s including a 2nd, and 3 x 3rd’s!
-Silver State Truggy and E-Buggy 2nd Place
-Numerous Trifectas (TQ+Win in all 3 classes entered) at Large Regional level races
-More wins and TQ’s than i’ve ever had in a season.
Some other accomplishments that I am proud of in 2015:
-My LutzRC brand has continued to grow at about another 10% this year. Thank you to everyone who supports me in that endeavor!
-Being a part of what I feel is the best team in the industry Tekno RC. Everyone helping everyone, and now showing that the cars are the best as well!
-Another Charity Auction to end the year in which another $1,127.07 was donated to some worthy causes!
I want to thank all of my sponsors from 2015 who helped make it my most successful season ever!

For 2016 I hope to improve even further on 2015. The year ended absolutely awesome for me with some great results against top competition. I can’t wait to get to the opening big events of 2016 and of course the IFMAR Worlds in October. This could be my ‘break-out’ year! Time to work to make it happen! 🙂
