Qualifying saw Kyosho driver Jared Tebo take the pole position ahead of Losi driver Darren Bloomfield, with the pair tied on points, Jared taking it due to a faster time. Associated driver Ryan Maifield lined up 3rd with Mike Truhe and Ryan Cavalieri completing the top 5.

Leg 2 saw Bloomfield go one better and take the win ahead of TQ Jared Tebo, while Cavalieri came home in 3rd, setting up a final leg showdown between 3 drivers. Leg 3 saw Darren come through to win the decider in front of Tamiya man Lee Martin, with Jared Tebo taking 3rd, the result giving the TLR22 buggy the win with Bloomfield, with Ryan Cavalieri with his B4.1 in 2nd and Jared Tebo with the Kyosho chassis taking the final podium spot in 3rd.
