2011 Nitro Challenge Race Coverage–NEW VIDEOS ADDED!

Mar 04, 2011 No Comments by

Check out the exciting on-the-scene coverage by John Cary, West coast contributor, of the 2011 Nitro Challenge at The Nitro Pit track located in Wittmann Arizona. If your not sure what The Nitro Pit is, it’s one of the largest off-road tracks in the entire USA. This years Nitro Challenge is leading up to be quite an event. The racing field consists of drivers from all over the U.S. as well as an international crowd with drivers hailing from the United Kingdom, Finland, Spain, and Sweden. The layout of the track is simple, but it’s extremely hard to go fast. There is even a 4ft drop off with slight gap added in. I’ve heard rumor of several new products being tested in the pits, including a couple that should be released in the near future. The best part of all… The Dirt Girls.

It’s 10:30pm at the track right now and we’re currently getting hit with 30+mph winds and excessive rain. I have a feeling racing may expect some delays tomorrow.

Tonight’s main event was pretty exciting. Over the years I’ve been privileged to have the opportunity in covering RC races throughout the world, tonight’s truggy main was by far one of the best. The battle that took place between Kyosho’s Jared Tebo and Team Associated’s Ryan Maifield did more then getting people on their toes, it electrified the stands. The two drivers changed positions numerous times throughout the main event, worked their way through traffic with ease, both bobbled allowing the other to pass, and it came down to the last lap. In the end… Jared Tebo came out on top giving 2nd place to Mailfield and 3rd to Ryan Cavalieri. Not to mention, Jared was also the TQ. Not bad for days work. Congratulations, Jared.
