    saw tim gibbon's name on vegas FC Q sheets, but knew nothing about the car.
    earlier today was reading really good article on complus about stringer racing, clay/grubby, and their
    upcoming 2018 season. at the bottom of article was (1) comment from chris bennett.
    here's a couple links about his racing operation. i wish his family and operation all the best.
    pretty darn inspiring reading about this team.

    Interesting, because I thought they were associated with Richard Townsend. But that is not the case.

    Townsend will be running a Toyota body part time this year with his own team. Saw a Facebook video of them making a 1/2 track hit at Famoso earlier this month.

    New competition is always good.

    Their "About" page actually tells more about the team...history, etc... I definitely wouldn't call them "New" by any means whatsoever. They've been racing some sort of nitro powered vehicle since the early 80s.
