This is the fourteenth time that the calendar of notable RC races kicks off with the biggest nitro offroad race of the year, The Dirt Nitro Challenge. Held in Arizona since 2007, and for the second time at the Fear Farm in Phoenix, the Nitro Challenge consistently draws record breaking crowds with incredible track layouts and an international contingent that annually boasts the fastest racers in the world. Last year, Hot Bodies’ Canadian sensation Ty Tessman kicked off a career year with a clean sweep of the Pro Truck and Buggy classes. Will he do it again, or will another racer steal the show? Stay tuned to RCCarAction.com all week long for interviews, photos, and updates straight from the track!
