Maifield is adapting quickly to the 8IGHT 3.0.

Ryan Maifield recently caused a big stir when he switched sponsors to race for the highly respected TLR racing team. The talented driver has already been enjoying some great success with some of the company’s vehicles, but hasn’t really been tested with his TLR 8IGHT 3.0 on a world stage until now. Ryan isn’t one to disappoint and here in Messina, is mixing it up near the top. He finished right behind Ty Tessmann in qualifying and is ready for the upper mains to get underway. Fortunately I had to a chance to corner him in between his flurry of wrenching and take a peak under his buggy’s hood. Nothing unusual here, just meticulous work.
