Hebert Wins Halloween Classic!October 19, 2015
Event Name: Halloween Classic
Event Location: The Gate, Brunswick, OH
Event Date(s): October 2, 2015 to October 4, 2015
With entries selling out in only 35 minutes, the Halloween Classic continues to be one of the premier on-road events in the U.S.A. On October 2-4, 225 lucky entrants converged upon The Gate in Brunswick, OH for an exciting weekend and the unofficial kick-off to the 2015-16 indoor racing season.
Canadian driver Keven Hebert has been the dominant North American 1:12 driver the past few years and continued to show world-class pace by placing his Reedy Sonic 540-M3 powered RC12R5.2 on the pole position with a time that bested his nearest competitor by over a lap!
With a single main event determining the winner, a clean start and mistake-free race would be in order. As planned, Keven shot into the lead at the sound of the tone and never looked back. He slowly increased his lead and at the 8-minute mark he crossed the finish line to take a wire-to-wire win. Teammate Mike Haynes also drove impressively to join Keven on the podium in the third position.
Congratulations to the participants and thanks to the organizers for continuing this Halloween tradition.
