Thank the RC Gods, the Tekno RC Driver did not retire from professional racing in 2018.
Jared Tebo has rejuvenated his career after joining Tekno RC with a vigor and passion that propelled Tebo to two 10th scale world championships, 2 ⅛ Buggy National titles, 6 Neo Race wins, as well as plethora of other national titles and big race wins.
Near the end of 2017 Tebo was burnt out and not happy with his racing, he had stated many times he wished to retire to a normal man’s life. Fast forward to silly season 2018 and Tebo left long time chassis sponsor Kyosho for the American company Tekno RC.
2019 saw a complete 180 in the Missouri native and he was winning and enjoying RC again with big wins in 2019 and 2020. Jared Tebo is enjoying RC and life embracing social media and being one of the pro drivers that allows us mere mortals a glimpse into the everyday life of an RC Pro.
2021 has not seen the 34 year old win a nitro buggy race but he has been very consistent at DNC with a 7th then on to PNB where he would get a 4t. At SilverState Tebo was feeling the flow and after winning the truggy main everyone had him picked to win the nitro buggy main. This would not be the case as he would have to settle for a 4th. While these might not be wins they are consistent and Tebo goes to the Nationals in first place of the NNRC Cup Series with 204 points.
What the future has in store for ⅓ of the Great 3. Tebo, Cav and Maifield have raced against each other and elevated RC racing over the last 18 years. Tebo last tasted NATS glory in 2017 in a controversial win at the Stateline RC Raceway. Will Tebo find favor at LCRC and leave there a 3 time National Champion?
