Event Name: RC Pro Series North Division, Round 1
Event Location: HobbyTown USA Hobbyplex in Omaha, NE
Event Date(s): April 6, 2013 to April 7, 2013
This past weekend, HobbyTown USA Hobbyplex in Omaha, NE hosted the first round of the RC Pro Series North Division. With a good number of entries to start the series, Team Associated's Nick Gibson qualified his Team Associated RC8.2 in the number 2 spot behind Jared Tebo.
Settling in to second place and overcoming adversity with a bent servo horn, Nick was able to solidify a gap over third place Associated teammate Chad Parks. At the 33-minute mark and with just over 10 minutes to go, leader Tebo flamed out. Gibson capitalized on Tebo's misfortune, taking the lead and holding off a late race charge by Parks and Tebo -- taking the win with just a 5-second margin!
Congratulations to Nick on his outstanding performance, and we wish you good luck for the rest of the series.
