Team XRAY again proved that they are a force to be reckoned with. The 2004 Reedy Race of Touring Car Champions was held at the Tamiya America R&D Test Facility (Aliso Viejo, California) on May 27th – 30th. At this prestigious event, Team XRAY driver Greg Hodapp finished a close 2nd place to overall winner Surikarn Chaidajsuriya.

Hodapp was leading until the last run, and still finished with the same points as overall winner Surikarn Chaidajsuriya. However, Hodapp suffered a technical failure in one run preventing him from winning that run; that unfortunately resulted in the overall win slipping from his grasp due to the points tabulating method.
