Silver State: Tebo Doubles!

Team Associated and Kyosho ace Jared Tebo won both Pro classes at the Silver State Nitro challenge. The Kid started second for the main event in the 1/10 Pro class, battled early with The Drake, and eventually settled his O’Donnell-powered Factory Team GT into the lead. Trinity’s hard-charging Ryan Cavalieri dueled with Tebo in the back half of the race, often looking faster. The two must have swapped spots a dozen times, and it was an edge-of-your-seat thriller as Tebo got a better run down the nasty, rutted back straight on the last lap to sneak by for a 1.1 second victory over Pudge.

In 1/8, Tebo had troubles during qualifying and was forced to bump up from the B-main. He won the B for a 12th place spot on the A-main grid. Early on, it looked as TQ Mark Pavidis would check out and win, but an early flame out forced him pack in the pack. Tebo sliced and carved through the field with surgical precision as he picked off the other racers. As the clock wound down, Cavalieri was up in second and closing the gap, but it wasn’t enough to catch The Kid.

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.
