Tebo and Bradley get it done at The Dirt

Team Associated/Kyosho/O’Donnell ace Jared “The Kid” Tebo (who just turned 18 this past weekend) won both the 1/10-scale and 1/8-scale pro classes at The Dirt Nitro Challenge.
In the Unlimited Monster Truck class, Mugen’s Chad Bradley TQ’d and won with the new Mugen MBX5-T truggy, which will be offered as a conversion kit for the MBX-5 buggy.
Tebo was top qualifier in 1/10-scale and managed to break away from an early battle with Team Trinity/Losi’s Adam Drake. In 1/8-scale, Jared put in a valiant effort late in the race to pass Kyosho/Peak driver Mark Pavidis with just a couple minutes remaining in the race. Eight-scale TQ Ryan Cavalieri passed Pavidis with seconds remaining to grab second.
While Bradley TQ’d and won the monster truck class, Matt Gosch put in a strong showing taking second place earning him a100% Pro-Line ride—and did we mention he’s just 13 years old?. Mugen’s Jason Ashton (also running an MBX5-T) was on fire, and bumped all the way up from the G-main (the lowest Main for monster trucks) to take home third place. Ashton even led part of the A-main despite being 12th on the grid for the start of the race.

For 2005, Mark will be running Peak Racing Vantage modified motors and PowerFlo Voltage Enhanced batteries in all his electric Kyosho machines, and Blitz 1400 receiver packs in his nitro rides. Looks like Mark also scored a sweet sweatshirt and hat outta the deal too.
