Round 5 of the RCPro Series was held at Boothill Raceway this past weekend. Racers battiled the weather on Friday and Saturday morning as rain left the track area very wet and muddy. After some time and some sun the track became extremely enjoyable with an abrasive bumpy surface foriegn to most who had been to the track. Look out for the finals at Thornhill Raceway November 16th through the 18th.

Pablo Tejada would finish 4th with Robert Chapman finishing 5th.
