This past weekend the Tennessee State Championship race was held at ROCCK Racing in Knoxville, TN. The race drew in an amazing crowd of over 160 racers from all over the southeast. There were 30 entries in the Pro E-Buggy class alone!
Tekin factory driver Shay Brand was running his Tekin powered Mugen MBX7R-Eco at the event. Shay was able to get the TQ in all 3 rounds of qualifying and solidify his #1 position for the main. At the start of the main Shay was able to jump out to a quick lead. A mistake allowed 2nd to pass Shay who would put his head down and charging back. Shay was able to make the pass for 1st with about 2 minutes left and hold on to take the overall Win!
“My Tekin RX8 Gen2 esc paired with the T8 1900kV motor had unbelievable power and consistency. Thanks to all of my sponsors for their help and support, I wouldn’t be where I am today without them!” Shay Brand
