Maifield wins at Sidewinder Nitro Explosion
This past weekend the annual Sidewinder Nitro Explosion was held at RC Tracks of Las Vegas, host of the forthcoming IFMAR 1/8th Nitro Buggy Worlds. Excessive heat and a low turnout of drivers left the organisers with no choice but to make the usually very successful event a 1-day affair. In the Buggy Expert class Dakotah Phend took the overall TQ only to experience a very messy start that saw Dakotah dropping down the field massively. Up front a fight between REDS Team driver Ryan Maifield and Ty Tessmann arose but it was Maifield who was able to built a small margin on his competitor around mid-race that he would hold onto until the end of the race. Ty Tessmann had to settle for second while Dakotah Phend recovered to third overall.
Ryan was using REDS R7 Evoke engine, 2104 pipe and S manifold.
