The 5th Annual International Indoor Championship (IIC), presented by Scotty Ernst, was hosted over the weekend at the Riviera in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. With 90 entries in the class, Team Associated/Reedy’s Keven Hébert took his TC5R to the top qualifying position and eventually the A-main victory in the ultra competitive 13.5 Rubber Touring Car category.*Hébert was on a mission to add to his impressive career resume by setting the fastest time each time he was on the track. With challenges from former World Champion Andy Moore, multi-time Reedy Race & National Champion Barry Baker, the young Associated star stood up to the pressure and claimed the top qualifying position.*As the tone sounded for the main event, Hébert jumped out to a lead that would never be challenged.* Waiting in the cat bird seat, Hohnstein took advantage of a tangle between Moore and Baker and jumped in to second position. Three minutes later, Hohnstein had Moore all over his back door and never cracked; even making a clean pass back on the World Champion after a wide corner. With Hébert on a victory lap, all Hohnstein had to do was drive around traffic to claim the runner up spot with Mike Haynes 3rd.
