Halloween Classic Victory for Keven Hébert and TC6

The Halloween Classic has become one of the premier touring car races of the year and signals the beginning of the indoor racing season. With factory drivers such as Paul Lemieux, Keven Hébert, Josh Cyrul, Drew Ellis, and Mike Blackstock competing for the victory in Open Touring Car, the fight was bound to be intense.

Keven Hébert showed excellent speed in practice with his Reedy/LRP-powered TC6. He and Paul Lemieux appeared to be the favorites going into qualifying. The schedule called for four rounds of qualifying with the single best run to count. Main events would also follow this single-race format to determine each winner and the Champion.

When qualifying was completed, Keven managed to secure the second position on the grid behind Lemieux. Unfortunately, some small mistakes slowed his pace but the precision handling of his TC6 combined with the power and duration of his Reedy 5000mAh 40C+ LiPo battery and LRP SXX TC-Spec ESC would ultimately pay off.

The A-Main event saw Lemieux and Hébert set off ahead of the rest of the field into a personal battle between the two. A bobble by Hébert allowed Lemieux to stretch out a small lead but Keven was able to reduce the gap and put pressure on the leader. Finally, at the three-minute mark, a mistake by the leader gave Keven Hébert the lead which he would maintain until the checkered flag!
