The second round Frank run nearly an identical time to he first round, beating his TQ narrowly. When the dust had settled, Root was TQ with Turner 6th and Castellano 9th on the grid. When the tone went off, Root got off to a great start and put in clean lap while being chased by a 3 car freight train. Eventually, Frank was left with only one challenger still in close pursuit. The racing was close, but Frank managed to get the win with his 22 to take a strong hold of the points lead in the series. Turner and Castellano both had had a great run also moving up from their starting spots to finish 4th and 5th respective giving the TLR 22 the TQ, win and 3 of the top 5 spots for the night.


Pro2 (Modified SC) – Frank’s Losi XXX-SCT equipped with the TLR Tuned Kit was untouchable all day. Cody would take the TQ in the first round with a strong run. The second round saw Frank and Cody battle for the lead early with both on a TQ run, but Frank would eventually pull away a little and take the TQ, with teammate Cody Turner in 2nd. Frank started on form at the sound of the tone and quickly pulled out from the field, leaving the battle for 2nd place. Turner finished 2nd with his Losi XXX-SCT giving the XXX-SCT the top 2 steps of the podium.
