For the first time in the “Dirt Nitro Challenge” history (12 years!), someone has TQ’d and won both Pro nitro 1/8-scale classes.
Kyosho’s Jared Tebo put on a clinic, dominating the event by TQ’ing and winning both the Pro Truggy (in a nailbiter of a finish against AE’s Ryan Maifield) and Pro Buggy nitro classes at The Nitro Pit in Whittman, Arizona. And no, that’s not sweat on Tebo’s sweatshirt–it’s two trophy presentations’ worth of champion’s champagne!
Tebo took home the trophies piloting his Kyosho Inferno MP9 TKI2 buggy and Inferno ST-RR truggy, both equipped with Team Orion engines, AKA wheels/tires/inserts, KO Propo radio gear and Maxima nitro fuel.
