RC Pro National Finals was hosted by Mikes Hobby Shop/Gulf Coast Raceway, Porter, Tx. A 4 day event with open practice Thursday, controlled practice and 2 rounds of quals on Friday, 2 more quals and lower mains, and Sunday remaining mains.
Round 1 of Quals had Tekin powered Brian “Smiley” Henn taking early Tq in both Pro4 Sc and Pro E-buggy. Henn repeated his top qualifying in Round 2.
In Round 3 Henn would continue the TQ streak, TQ’ing both Pro4 Sc and Pro E-buggy. This would give him the overall TQ for both classes!
On Sunday Henn would go to take the A1 and A2 win in Pro4 to secure the overall win giving him the RC Pro Series Championship in Pro 4 SC! Brian chose the Tekin Rx8 Gen2 esc and Pro4 HD 4300kv motor to power his TLR Ten Scte 2.0 to the title.
In A1 for Pro E-buggy it would be much different. A 5 way battle for the win between Henn, AE’s Jake Dellinger and Tekin teammate David Joor, TLR’s Josh Glancy and local Jeremy Cupps. At the end of A1 it would be Joor taking the win with Glancy 2nd, Dellinger 3rd and Henn 4th. A2 was much the same, A heated battle with Dellinger taking the win, Henn 2nd ,Glancy 3rd. A3 was another exciting main. Henn had the lead for over half the race but a few traction roll’s cost him the A3 win. A3 was won by Dellinger with Joor taking 2nd, Glancy 3rd and Henn 4th. This would put Joor 2nd and Henn 4th overall in Pro E-Buggy.
