Top Qualifier Team Durango’s Stevie Charles led from the start and was on cruise-control for 8 minutes. 2nd place starter TJ Eller has a solid showing holding onto 2nd. 3rd place starter Santos Colon was briefly challenged by Randal Fraser falling back to 4th briefly, before taking the position back and bringing home a solid 3rd place finish.

A rough start in the 2WD Buggy A-main, saw Top Qualifier Schumacher driver Aja fall back to 5th but he quickly responded and made his way back to the front. 2nd place qualifier Team Durango driver Toby Hamson fell back to 3rd and had a good battle with Losi’s Justin Drinks. Hamson prevailed about 10 laps in moving back up to 2nd, with TJ Eller coming from 6th to round out the podium.
