Tessmann is Top Qualifier at ‘The Dirt’

Ty Tessmann has wrapped up TQ honours for the buggy class at the Dirt Nitro Challenge.  Having set the fastest time in Q1, the Canadian ace again set the pace in the second of the three qualifiers, this time going fastest ahead young TLR star Dakotah Phend, to secure his first pole position start at Joey Christensen’s annual signature event.  The 19-year-old factory Hot Bodies driver, who is a former Champion of the event in Truggy, said he had a little problem with traffic which caused him trouble in the woops section but otherwise he was really happy with the performance of his OS powered D8.  With pole position for Sunday’s final in the bag, Tessmann will sit out the third qualifier and enjoy an early night while the his rivals battle it out for the other positions on the grid in tonight’s final qualifier which is not set to end until some time after 12pm here in Arizona.
