Modified: 

JJ Wang and Max Kuenning (XRAY/RCAmerica) were on site to challenge the Canadian Keven Hebert and a few other local fast guys. It was Wang with the fastest pace throughout the weekend that would have him line up on pole for the triple A-mains with fellow teammate Kuenning starting in fifth. All 3 mains were action packed with battles all throughout the field. Wang would end up winning A1 while Kuenning won A2. It was all up to the the final battle in A3 between the top 3 drivers. Wang and Hebert were able to spread out a comfortable lead between themselves and Kuenning. It was an extremely close battle for the entire 5 minutes. JJ went with a defensive strategy. While the top 2 were battling Kuenning was able to close the gap to 1.2 seconds between himself and the leaders. Hebert made an amazing pass to get past Wang and would end up finishing in that order.

1/12 Stock (13.5 blinky): 
With the a new spec motor coming out every couple months we had no idea how this class was going to shape out. But it was our very own Max Kuenning with his Trinity powered X12 2017 that would lead the charge for TQ. Only setting TQ by a couple tenths of a second from CRC’s Adam Balk. A1 was a chance to see if Kuenning had the pace throughout the entire 8-minutes to see if he could hold off Balk with his immense pace in the closing minutes of the races. Just by driving very clean races Kuenning was able to lead A1 and A2 tone to tone to cling the overall win.
