June 24, 2021: RC Pylon Racing

By Gary Freeman Jr.

Pylon had two more rounds of qualifying on Wednesday, and as I previously mentioned, lots of things changed as far as who made it in. Dennis Cranfil came out with a mission and won both of his heats and made it in. The top 22 made it in, along with the wild cards, 23rd (Ray Brown) and fast time (AJ Hemken).

Sorry but I have to be a proud dad one more time and mention that Brody did an amazing job for his first 426 competition at a Nationals. He finished up with a personal best time of 1:17.

Tuesday started off a little chilly, with temperatures in the low 50s. The good news was that there was little wind and that made from great racing conditions.

Event 426 is a one-engine class that uses the Dub Jett Super Sport .40.  All of the engines are very close in performance. As a result, this class has very tight heats in almost every race. We completed six of the eight qualifying rounds. The top 22 will make it, along with two “wild cards.”
