Ryan Lutz wins Nitro Truggy at US Open Fuel Champs

Ryan Lutz wins Nitro Truggy at US Open Fuel Champs

The inaugural US Open Fuel Championships race was held at the Fear Farm Raceway this past weekend. A number of Pro drivers made the journey and it was raced like the “old days” where there was just one class per vehicle. Tekno RC’s Ryan Lutz would have a mixed Nitro Truggy qualifier but he would end up with the TQ spot and in the main final and right from the tone Lutz was in front of TLR’s Ryan Maifield as the top four made a breakaway from the pack. Maifield would challenge Lutz early on but he started to fall back as the Tekno driver found his groove and began to pull away. Soon Lutz had a 5 second lead and it continued to grow. His closest competitors mid race both had issues thus allowing him an even greater margin to 2nd. In the end of the 45 min A-main Lutz was able to win by about 1.5 laps over his Tekno teammate Joe Bornhorst. Serpent’s Mike Truhe would round out the top 3.
