VP PRO Dominates FORCE Rd6


VP PRO reports – “Round 6 of the FORCE series was held at Rotonda Raceway last Sunday. It was a makeup race for the rain out the previous weekend which cause a lower turnout of 61 entries, but the track and racing was still awesome. In round 1, VP-Pro USA’s Gene Hickerson was racing his new Agama A8 buggy for only the 2nd time. Hickerson took the TQ with VP-Pro Ultra Flexx Turbo Trax, just missing a 12 lap run. In round 2, Hickerson missed the start due to a dead starter box, leaving the door open for VP-Pro driver Scott Blaney to set a new TQ with a fast 12 lap run, followed by Xray driver Jared Scott also putting in a 12 lap run. In the 1/8 A-main event, there was a first lap pileup leaving the two VP-Pro drivers 11th & 12th. Blaney and Hickerson worked their way though the pack and eventually took over the lead from Jared Scott after the 1st round of pit stops. Hickerson passed Blaney after a crash half way through and the two went on to lap the field giving VP-Pro a 1st & 2nd place finish in the 20 minute main event, followed by Sean Farmer in 3rd.
