Though the results of tonight’s Pro Truck final weren’t what was expected after watching three rounds of qualifying on Thursday, it wasn’t really a surprise either: Ty Tessman repeated as Pro Truck champion by methodically driving through the field, hanging tough as pit stops cycled through, and keeping it together when it mattered.

2013 Nitro Challenge – Day Two, First Round

Buggy qualifying is underway at the Fear Farm, and it took just a few corners into the first heat this morning to see that the rough track surface, with edges and inconsistent spots created by Wednesday’s rain storm, wreaked much more havoc on the cars than during yesterday’s truggy qualifying.
