Rob Gillespie Jr. triples at April Fools Classic

The 27th Annual Pro-Line April Fools Classic hosted by Murf’s Intermountain R/C Raceway in Salt Lake City, UT, attracted over 250 entries from all over the western United States. As one of the longest-running events in the country, the heritage of the April Fools Classic is undeniable, and with a new facility racers were excited for the next chapter. Taking the TQ in both Truck Modified and 2WD Modified local Rob Gillespie Jr. was poised for the finals as he also qualified 2nd in 4WD Modified. As the main events got underway Sunday morning, Gillespie Jr. was on point and ready to compete. Taking a victory in A1 and A2 of Truck Modified, Gillespie Jr. sewed up his first title with a good challenge from teammate Tanner Denney. In 2WD Modified and 4WD Modified, Gillespie Jr. got the wins in A1 and looked to seal up the titles in A2. However it wasn’t to be and the titles had to be settled in A3. With a calm and determined mindset, the young Utah native completed the three-class sweep by winning both of the remaining main events in front of a very supportive hometown crowd.
