Arrieta wins Street Buggy at Novarossi Challenge

At this year Novarossi Challenge, there a new class called Street Buggy. It’s 1/8th Off-road buggies running on the asphalt with a chicane on the straightaway in order to keep the engine from over working. It was a big hit since 1/8th nitro buggy are the current biggest class in FL. The “body roll” made this class the most entertaining race for the weekend. During the A main event, the race was a great battle between Alfredo Arrieta and Joaquin Desoto Sr. The 2 drivers using Hot Bodies Pink Megabite tires were never more than a few seconds apart the whole race. With the same pit strategy, it all came down to the driver. Alfredo was able to take the win, with Joaquin close behind. The TQ Ricardo Jordao suffered from the wrong tire choice, but he was still able finish the race on the lead lap. All three, running Novarossi powered Serpents, were separated by only 10 seconds after 30 minutes of intense battle.
