Team Associated’s Ryan Maifield led most of the hour-long Pro Truggy A-main only to relinquish the victory to his teammate Ryan Cavalieri. Cavalieri, who TQed, seemed to be cruising most of the main event. In the last 10-minutes of the race, he dropped the hammer and put down his fastest laps of the race. Cavalieri won with with a Factory Team RC8T, Team Orion’s new Alpha CRF .21 engine, and Pro-Line Hole Shots. Cavalieri said, “my truck was good in the beginning of the race, then it went away, and in the end it got really good, as my tires wore in.”
