Maifield wins Buggy at Winter NitroX

Puerto Rico recently hosted their own “big race” style event and the organizers made sure that the attendees added to that feel, with 8 pros being flown in, Jimmy Babcock running the show and nearly 250 attendees in both classes. The very large track had little maintenance performed on it during the course of the weekend and this contributed to the rough, dusty, and dry conditions with the jumps being a huge source of difficulty. Ryan Maifield continued his winning ways from the JConcepts Clash onto international soil where he was able to TQ 1/8th buggy over the likes of Adam Drake and Jesse Robbers. Maifield took control of the main early and cruised to a victory some 30 seconds clear of the Drake in 2nd place. In 1/8th truck Adam TQ’d and had the lead in the main until about 3 minutes to go when he got caught up with a lapped car. This allowed Maifield to take over first and with 1 lap to go Ryan got bit by a lapper. Even though he pushed hard, the Drake had too much of a lead to overcome in 1 lap and held of Maifield by half a second.
