LAS VEGAS - Turbo 2-N-1 Grips 1 of Madison, Wis., has established itself as one of the premier teams at the USBC Open Championships and turned in another dominating performance at Cashman Center on Saturday.

The accomplished quartet already owned the Regular Team lead (3,403) when it entered the building for doubles and singles, and that momentum carried the group into the top spot in Team All-Events with a 10,317 total, the fifth-highest team effort since the category was added in 1947. The record is 10,425, shot by Pollard's Bowl of Versailles, Ind., in 1996.

It is the 17th time the 10,000 mark has been eclipsed, and the second for the Turbo 2-N-1 Grips crew, which shot 10,040 in 2007 and finished second to Browning Pontiac of Eminence, Ky. (10,071).

Mike Shady led the way for Turbo 2-N-1 Grips 1 this weekend with a career-best 2,133 all-events total, and while he is second in Regular All-Events, his focus is always on team success. That's why the 43-year-old right-hander saved his best performance for doubles and teamed up with Marc McDowell to take the Regular Doubles lead with a 1,474 total.

Shady and McDowell each shot 737 as they moved past Ron Nelson Jr. of Bridgeview, Ill., and Bryan O'Keefe of Arlington, Texas, who previously held the lead with 1,466. Nelson still leads Regular All-Events with 2,138.

"We really work hard together," said Shady, who had 715 in singles and 681 in team and has broken the 1,900 all-events mark in all 14 of his tournament appearances. "We come in with a game plan and stick with it. Some years it doesn't work out that well, but this year it did. We are very fortunate."

Gail Myers Jr., one of 18 bowlers who own multiple 300 games on the tournament lanes, added 2,111 for Turbo 2-N-1 Grips 1 and was followed by four-time USBC Open Championships titlist Jeff Richgels (2,051), McDowell, a five-time Professional Bowlers Association national champion (2,027) and Steve Richter (1,995).

The same group claimed the Team All-Events crown in 2005, with Richgels and Richter also taking home the Regular Doubles title. Don Johnson Memorial of Lexington, Ky., previously held this year's Team All-Events lead in with 10,056.

"The lanes opened up and we executed," said Shady, who owns one Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour title (1992 Earl Anthony Open). "It's all about pre-shot routines and going out there and trying to make the best shot possible."

At one point in time, Shady and McDowell were enemies on the lanes, bowling for rival colleges, Nebraska and West Texas State, respectively, but as their careers progressed, so did their friendship, and a doubles title at the Open Championships often has been a topic of conversation.

"We have great communication and talk with each other through our games," McDowell said. "It feels awesome, but you look back and you wish you could have knocked a few more pins down and posted the highest score possible. Ever since we became friends, we talked about winning a doubles title together, so we hope our score holds up."

If Shady and McDowell can hold on to win all three titles, they will add their names to a very short list of 13 bowlers who have claimed three or more eagles in a single year.

A win also would be bittersweet for Richgels, who claimed the first of his four titles (Regular Team) under the same roof when the Open Championships made its only other trip to Las Vegas in 1986.

Richgels also found individual success before hooking up with his current teammates. In 1997, he posted 90 clean frames on the way to the Regular All-Events title, a feat that has never been matched in 106 years of Open Championships competition.
