Ryan Maifield, the defending 1/8th buggy champion put his stamp on the 1/8th truck class by TQ’ing in convincing fashion on the newly released Sevens in Blue compound. Ryan also placed his RC8b in striking distance by qualifying in the second position with the brand new Double Dees V2 tire. JR Mitch with his freshly built RC8e TQ’ed the electric 1/8th buggy class utilizing the Subcultures tire in blue compound.
Sunday was main day as drivers carefully evaluated the conditions and made changes to steadily changing surface and elements. JR Mitch used the TQ position in the Modified Truck class to his advantage and won A-main #1 and #3 wrapping up his 3rd consecutive modified truck Clash title.
In the 2wd Super Stock Class 2nd qualifier JP Richards mounted a fresh set of Bar Codes in blue compound for the 10 minute A-main and held a tight battle with TQ Leon McIntosh. JP pulled a comfortable lead with only a few minutes to go but made a mistake allowing Leon to move in for a pass and they raced side by side. Coming onto the straight away JP had the inside line but touched wheels with Leon sending him into the pit lane wall. JP finished off the last lap adding another title to his already impressive list of racing wins.
1/8th buggy TQ Jared Tebo had a magnificent start with 2nd qualifier Ryan Maifield holding down the 2nd spot. Ryan made an uncharacteristic mistake allowing Ryan Cavalieri and JR Mitch to move by into 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Cavalieri was on the hunt and actually caught Tebo and made a move toward the end of the race and took over race lead with only a few laps to go. Ryan made a mistake in the rhythm jump section and Tebo quickly drove by and finished off the last several laps on his way to another impressive weekend taking the overall win. Ryan Cavalieri would finish 2nd and JR Mitch would finish 3rd.
