Team Associated’s Hébert Wins 3rd Annual Timezone Grand Prix

Timezone Raceway, host of the 2011 ROAR Carpet Nationals, is one of the biggest carpet tracks in North America which makes it a great place to test and race thanks to their challenging layouts that feature a good mixture of high and low speed corners. Open practice and testing on Friday would be followed by four rounds of qualifying on Saturday and the main events on Sunday.

During Friday’s practice session, I had the plenty of time to fine tune my LRP/Reedy powered 12R5.1 and TC6. Both cars worked well right away but after learning the track and making some small changes I felt extremely confident going into Saturday’s qualifying. Saturday’s qualifying went as well as it could have hoped for. I TQed for every round of qualifying in both 1/12 Modified and TC Modified which gave me the pole position for the triple A-mains on Sunday.

On Sunday, I was able to win both classes by winning the first two mains with an early challenge in the first TC Modified main by local TC6 driver Kody Knutson. Kody ended up in second position overall with Weylin Rose finishing third. In 1/12 Modified Randy Gross finished in second with EJ Evans in third.

Thanks to Timezone Raceway for another fun and successful event!
