1/8 Electric Pro Buggy
In the 1/8 Electric Pro Buggy Class, Mugen's Drew Moller would take the TQ honors after qualifying was complete. Kyosho would have 3 of their heavy hitters in the A-Main Event: David Ronnefalk qualified 3rd, Jared Tebo qualified 5th, and Cody King qualified 9th.
The 8-Minute A-Main Event would see the TQ Drew Moller lead the field around for the first 2 laps. Kyosho's David Ronnefalk quickly made his way up to 2nd and started putting the pressure on Moller for the lead battle. As Moller headed onto the back straight, he hit a rut and lost traction, just then Ronnefalk rocketed by to take over the race lead. Ronnefalk would never look back and extend his lead throughout the main event. David went on to win by an impressive 10-second margin with his Team Orion powered Kyosho MP9E! Moller would hold on to 2nd after a great battle with TLR's Dakotah Phend during the last couple laps. Phend would round out the podium in 3rd. Kyosho's Cody King put on a great charge at the end of the race to finish 4th. After a rough start, Jared Tebo would work his way back up to 11th. 1/8 Electric Pro Buggy Top 3 Overall:
