Scott Robert wins RC Mania Race

See: Tekin

The 2017 RC Mania race is a unique event as it is molded after a wrestling survivor series, two days on two different tracks, no podiums, just an overall champ of that class. After two rounds of qualifying Tekin driver Scott Robert had set TQ in both Mod 2wd buggy and Mod 4wd Buggy. In the 4wd A main Scott would lead the race with a decent lead until he would hit a pipe pin on the drop down on the left side of the track breaking an arm limping around the track to finish second, but would retain overall champ for that class. In 2wd, Scott focused again on clean consistent laps not crashing once the whole race which gave him a cushion to drive clean and win from the start.
