Taylor Petersen dominates Hank Perry 240

Kyosho America have a brief report from the recent Hank Perry 240 that attracted more than 300 entrants as well as attracting top factory talent from many of the major manufacturers. Kyosho / CRF driver Taylor Petersen dominated the event, having qualified first in the Pro Buggy class and 2nd in the Pro Truggy class. At the beginning of the buggy main Petersen battled closely with a couple of the front runners, trading the lead during pit stops, before taking the lead for the last time on lap 35 and going on to win by 1 lap. The truggy main also started with some close racing with the early front runners, but it took a challenging turn when Petersen had problems during the first fuel stop, knocking him back to fifth place and a full lap down to the leader. Petersen put his head down and charged as hard as possible, eventually getting back on the lead lap before finally passing the leader on lap 70. Petersen pulled out more than a five second lead over the last five laps to seal the win in the Pro Truggy class. Taylor also took top honours in the 1/10 truck class for yet another class victory.
