Robert Rux, 2015 and 2016 Board President, took 2nd place in the 2015 racing season.  Robert came in with 845-season points.  His engine blew towards the end of the season, with doubts of completing the end year of racing his team mate John Mustered in the 26-car came through with his back up engine.  It was all about team work.  Mike Clother in the 7-car drove back to Tacoma, from Rochester, early in the morning before the evening race to grab the engine for the 88-team.  So as it turned out, with all the team work, Robert was able to finish the evening of racing and held 2nd place. Thank you to all the teams that pitched in and came to the 88-team’s rescue.  Congratulations to Robert Rux and the 88-team for a very successful season.  Not only did the 88-car take 2nd place, but also received the ” Best Appearing Car” for 2015.
