ECNS Race #5 at the Tiltyard in Dayton, VA.
What a great track with alot of elevation changes and big jumps with some serious air time!!! The World Famous Tiltyard lived up to it's reputation and Homer Allman's track building expertise showed!!!
After qualifying was over, Chris Crews a Past Pro Series 1/8th scale Buggy National Champion made a quest appearance and TQed with the Novak powered T-4.
The "A" main started with Chris Crews leading the first 3 laps and a hard charging Dereck Martin chasing him down to led lap 4.
Crews was going to have none of that and took back the top spot on lap 5 leaving Dereck Martin, Dennis Allison to do battle while the battle for the 4th spot was being hard fought for by Tim Hepler, Doug Tudor and Tim Habuik.
The race settled down with Crews, Martin, Allison, Hepler and Tudor as top 5 running order until just past half way Crews and Martin developed problems shaking things up.
On lap 25 Allison took the lead with Crews struggling with a broke shock tower holding 2nd and Hepler and Tudor moved past the struggling Martin for 3rd and 4th spots.
After Crews and Martin came charging back from problems they fell a little short with the race finishing by Dennis Allison taking his first Pro Truck win of the year followed by Chris Crews, Tim Hepler, Doug Tudor and Dereck Martin as your top 5 finishers.
Congrats to all the Pro Truck Class for a great race.
Need to mention the top 3 trucks were all Novak Spread Spektrum GTBs with 5.5 motors in Associated T-4 trucks!!!
