The last competition of the 2019 season has come to an end! Team Neutrino attended the Cowtown Throwdown this past weekend, November 1st-2nd. After 63 qualification matches, the team had an undefeated record, and seeded at the #1 position. During alliance selection, the team captained the 1st seed alliance alongside teams 323, 1802, and 5119. Our alliance prevailed through the elimination rounds, defeating the 2nd seed alliance in the finals! We’re so proud of our drivers and thankful for our alliance members. This would not have been possible without them!
