Rivkin, Tessmann & Evans win at Desert Classic

This past weekend the annual Desert Classic was held at Hobby Action RC Raceway in Arizona. The track has a very unique type of dirt that provides extremely high traction, that even increased during the weekend, and then the surface breaks up a little bit which can make it edgy and very challenging. In the premier 2WD Modified Buggy class it was Team Associated’s Spencer Rivkin with the win from AE teammate, Dustin Evans in 2nd. Xray’s Ty Tessmann, who started from 6th on the grid, made some good progress thanks to various setup adaptions and he would ultimately bring home the final podium spot.

The 4WD Modified Buggy class was more or less an all-Tessmann affair. Ty would TQ the second and fourth round of the qualifiers for the overall TQ and he would also lead the first two A-mains start to finish to take the overall win from Yokomo’s Ryan Mayfield 2nd and Team Associated’s Dustin Evans 3rd.

The Modified Truck class was held as a single A-main event and when the dust had settled it was Team Associated’s Dustin Evans with the win a narrow 0.1s in front of Ty Tessmann (Xray) while TLR’S Dakotah Phend completed the top 3 results.
