Five days of inconsistent weather and consistently incredible racing action concluded with a stunning drive from the local favorite, as Ryan Maifield drove his Team Associated RC8.2 to his second Nitro Challenge Pro Buggy championship in convincing fashion. As we saw in last night’s Pro Truck final, dominating qualifying meant little for the Top Qualifier; […]
If you weren’t here in Phoenix, AZ to watch Ty Tessman outduel Jared Tebo, Adam Drake, and the other 12 drivers in the Pro Truck final to take his second class championship in a row, here’s your chance to relive all 45 minutes of this exciting race!
It’s the final day of the 2013 Nitro Challenge and last night was an amazing Pro Truck main event, with reigning champion Ty Tessman winning for the second year in a row. Earlier in yesterday’s program we caught up with two of the drivers who bumped up from the B-Main event, and both have some […]
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. The young […]
A Main Hobbies team driver driver and Tekno RC frontman (front kid?) Austin Blair has had a great weekend so far in Arizona, qualifying straight into the Pro Truck final and driving his EB48 to the TQ spot in Pro Electric Buggy, both of which will run today. We got to chat with the NorCal […]
It was another late night, but qualifying for the 2013 The Dirt Nitro Challenge is officially over. It’s nothing but heads-up racing from here on out for the nitro classes, which includes 40+, Open, and Pro Truck on Saturday and the same divisions for Buggy on Sunday. We’ll also have 1/10-scale short course racing on […]
Just like yesterday, the first round TQ sealed the deal early and left everyone fighting for the second spot on the grid. Kyosho’s Jared Tebo drove his red, white, and blue Kyosho to a commanding 6-second gap over the field, gaining a valuable advantage heading into Sunday’s 60-minute final as he goes for yet another […]
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. A familiar face jumped to […]
The 14th annual The Dirt Nitro Challenge got off to a strange start, with a storm bringing rain and snow (yes, snow in Arizona) to the track surface and cancelling Wednesday’s practice before the first round was completed. Rain is not at all unusual for this race, which has been plagued with strange weather over […]
