WOW Raceway in Clermont, FL hosted round 4 of the popular R/C Pro Series. With a competitive crowd and packed pit area, Florida racers were once again ready to go, putting in the late hours and heavy wrenching for a shot at Saturday glory. With 100 degree weather throughout the day, all equipment was put to the test. Taking early TQ in the pro 1/8th buggy class was Serpent ace driver Billy Easton. The first round of qualifying seemed to be smoothest for Billy and JR Mitch, with Billy holding a small advantage in overall time. Jason Ruona put in his best run in round 2, placing him 3rd on the grid.
As the A-main warm-up began it was easy to spot the favorites as JR, Billy, Jason and Ryan Eckert all appeared ready and extremely quick. JR got off to a great start and a mistake by the leader placed him in the lead with incredible breathing room. JR worked his way through traffic with ease with Eckert in 2nd and Ruona 3rd after a poor start. During the first pit stops, race leader JR Mitch, was in and out smoothly as well as Ryan Eckert. Ruona came in to pit and a flame-out in the pits put him behind the top 2 drivers. Mitch began to check out with a lap on the field. With a flameout by Eckert on the track, Ruona easily grabbed the 2nd position behind Mitch and that was how it finished.
