13 Year Old Rising Star Kamryn Ayers Shines at Cactus Classic

No matter what class you run at the Cactus Classic, you can count on racing the fastest drivers from all over the country. That certainly includes the stock classes, where a win very rightly earns the victor “driver to watch” status. In the Stock 17.5 2WD buggy class, the winner deserves a little extra attention […]
The Factory drivers have one more round to decide their qualifying fate.

Cactus Classic: Tessmann TQ’s 2WD Buggy, Cavalieri TQ’s Truck

With one round of qualifying to go, the Cactus Classic’s heavy hitters are scrabbling to find the points to move up in qualifying in the premier classes.

Cactus Classic: “No Tire Sauce” Rule Weakly Enforced

With qualifying well under way at the Cactus Classic, it seems that there is some big drama swirling among the drivers.

Cactus Classic: The Rebirth of the Stadium Truck?

Cactus Classic: The Rebirth of the Stadium Truck?

Short-course trucks have enjoyed great popularity over the past few years, but many feel that could be changing.  With many modern tracks seeing higher and higher grip, driving a short-course truck with their inherent characteristic of rolling and swaying makes them hard to drive when there is already an abundance of traction. In response, drivers […]

Durango Previews New Models at Cactus Classic

Team Durango displayed their new lineup coming out in early April of 2015. The new Durango vehicles are only a tease and I wasn’t able to look under their hoods, but they are all new platforms and not just a new freshening up of older models. The DNX8 is their 1/8-scale nitro buggy and I […]
