Lefebvre & Kemper win at Gulf Coast Grand Prix

The 2017 Gulf Coast Grand Prix was held at Mikes Hobbytown in Porter, Texas with the race having attendees from all three coasts, California, Florida, and Texas. At the start of the GT8 final, Nick Lefebvre (Xray), coming from 4th on the grid, was able to move into 2nd within just a few laps trailing Marcus Williams who was leading. Marcus and his Serpent would need to make an extra fuel stop during the 30-minute main event. With 7:30 to go Nick made his last stop and came out of the pits just behind the leader. This would give Nick the gap he needed as Marcus was making one more stop and in the progress Nick was able to hang onto the lead and cross the line to take the win. Marcus would come in 2nd from Jeff Whiting (Serpent) 3rd.

In the 1/10th Sedan class, Ethan Lefebvre was able to qualify 3rd just behind TQ holder Ron Atomic and 2nd placed Chris Kemper. As the 30-minute main went on, Ron would run into issues and fall back, Ethan and Chris would battle, but Chris was able to take the lead and hold off a hard charging Ethan for the win as Ron had to settle for 3rd.
