Ryan Lutz wins Pro Nitro Buggy at 2016 Fall Brawl

Ryan Lutz wins Pro Nitro Buggy at 2016 Fall Brawl

The 2016 edition of the popular Fall Brawl race was held this past weekend at Badlands in Myrtle Beach with over 550 entries. The track was very fast overall with lap times dipping to 21 seconds and the surface stayed very smooth. The conditions however were ever changing and the paramount tire choice was the hardest part of the racing. In Pro Nitro Buggy Mugen’s Cole Ogden would take the overall TQ from Tekno RC’s Ryan Lutz. Main day Sunday started at 7am and the program was shortened throughout with shorter mains so the organisers and driver could try to beat the incoming rain. The A-main started and Ryan Lutz crashed after shorting the first double and fell to 9th on the first lap. He quickly moved up to 4th and then both third and second let him by as he came up on them and Lutz set his sights on Ogden who was 5 seconds up. A couple laps later Cole got into a crash and Ryan just moved past him into the lead. Ogden eventually had to come in for a tire change as his was coming unglued so now Ryan worked up a 5 second lead ahead of Noah Dickerson about 7 minutes in and that seemed to be the same cushion for the next 10 minutes as Noah stayed on Ryan’s pace. After the last stop though Ryan suddenly had a 14 second lead and eventually he found himself right behind Noah on the last two laps. Lutz wanted to put him a lap down and he knew Noah wanted to stay on same lap and Dickerson fought him off hard and Lutz couldn’t get past and so Ryan Lutz came home with just under a lap victory from Noah Dickerson (Mugen) second and Griffin Hanna (Serpent) third while top qualifier, Cole Ogden had to settle for fourth overall.
