2WD Wrappped Up at the Reedy Race with Evans On Top.

2WD Wrappped Up at the Reedy Race with Evans On Top.

The Reedy Race of Champions is one of the most exciting events to watch on the racing calendar and this year’s race is living up to that reputation. With 2WD rounds of close racing for the Invite guys concluded, there’s been a lot to see. Rising to the top is TLR’s Dustin Evan, but with points being so close there’s no time for relaxing. Next on the agenda is 4WD, and this could make for some very interesting battles. For those tuning in to the event for the first time, the format is much different than the traditional qualifying with mains system normally used. In this case, six rounds of both 2WD and 4WD buggies are contested for a total of twelve rounds with three heats in each round providing critical racing for the elite drivers who are (somewhat) randomly placed on the grid in heads-up races with points earned based on finishing order. One lowest score is thrown out for each driver in both 2WD and 4WD classes and ten best scores used to decide an overall winner. It’s like watching a world-class main event every time these guys hit the dirt. Easily the best format for spectators and by far the most popular format for the participants.

The current Top 10.

1) Dustin Evans/ TLR- 7 points.

2) Dakotah Phend/ TLR- 8

3) Kody Numedahl/ Team Associated- 10

4) Ryan Cavalieri/ Team Associated– 10

5) Ryan Maifield/ TLR- 10

6) Spencer Rivkin/ Team Associated– 10

7) Jared Tebo/ Kyosho- 10

8) Steven Hartson/ Team Associated– 13

9) Chad Due/ Team Associated– 17

10) Kyle McBride/ Team Associated– 20

As you can see, it’s still pretty wide open with many having a legitimate chance at the overall win. Stay tuned.
