Cavalieri kicks off Reedy Race defence with a win

Defending Reedy Race Champion Ryan Cavalieri has kicked off the 24th running of the event with a hard earned win.  Starting from the second row of the grid, the Associated driver would win the opening race at OCRC from team-mate and pole starter Alex Kosciuszek but he had to work hard for it following a poor opening lap and a mistake 3-minutes in while challenge for the lead.  Last year’s 4WD Open Champion Broc Champlin made an impressive Invitational class debut as he led for 5-laps from 7th on the grid before getting pushed back to 4th. In the second of the three encounters, Spencer Rivkin took the win over Ryan Maifield, the World Champion having led for a lap before a mistake – this year’s track challenging all the drivers.  Behind, Jared Tebo completed the Top 3.  Having set the pace in practice yesterday, Dustin Evans would round out the first round of races with the most convincing win.  Starting on pole he immediately built up a massive lead to cross the line 7.3-seconds ahead of Ty Tessmann who was pleased to have been able to work his way through from 10th on the grid.
