Nick Gibson wins Pro Buggy Round 1, RC Pro Series North

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.

Thanks to Jeramy Riggs for this report.
