Round 1 of the RC Pro Series kicked off at Ultimate RC in Alvin, Texas. Mother Nature would make an appearance with an Ice storm blowing in cancelling Friday practice however four hours of practice would be held on Saturday. Saturday practice was “wet” causing cars to pick up weight, nearly 3 lbs at times! However come qualifying time the track would dry up enough to race on. Due to the practice the program was cut short to 2 qualifiers which allowed Tekin powered Brian “Smiley” Henn to Tq 4wd SC and take 2nd in Pro 1/8 E Buggy.
Back on schedule and the mains were run on Sunday, the track was nice and dry but a little rough due to the weather. First up was 1/8 Pro E buggy where Henn would take A1 battling it out with Jake Dillinger. A2 was much of the same the two battling for the lead however Dillinger would take A2. Due to the reduced schedule only two A’s were ran with the tie breaker coming down to average times, giving Henn the win!
In Pro 4 SC it was the “Smiley Henn” show with Brian taking both A1 and A2 in dominating fashion.
