Maifield, Tessmann & Cavalieri win at Manufacturers Cup

The Amain Hobbies Manufacturers Cup was hosted by Silver Dollar Raceway in Chico, California over the weekend with some of the fastest U.S. racers making their entry to race in the usual array of 1/8th off-road classes. The Manufacturers Cup is always an exciting race that carries a different format much similar to the Reedy Race of Champions, where the Pro drivers compete in a series of heads-up racing and awarded points after finishing results for each round. The lowest point total taken from 3 of the 4 rounds decides the overall finishing order making each round an all-out race rather. Ryan Maifield was on another level in the Pro Nitro Buggy class as he delivered a perfect performance going 4 for 4 to win all rounds and took the overall without question. The Mugen ace was on top of the tire program selecting the right tire at the right time and got good starts to work his way up to the front. Once in the lead, Maifield put it in overdrive and secured his flawless weekend in Nitro Buggy with some amazing driving. Xray’s Ty Tessman secured 2 wins and locked up 2nd as Kyosho’s Jared Tebo finished on the podium in 3rd.

Pro Truck saw Ty Tessmann (Xray) taking the overall from Team Associated’s Ryan Cavalieri 2nd and Ryan Maifield (Mugen) rounding out the podium.

Team Associated’ super duo, Ryan Cavalieri and Spencer Rivkin locked out the top 2 spots in Pro E-Buggy with Cavalieri taking the win as the only repeat winner winning rounds 3 and 4 to take the overall. Rivkin had some solid finishes to add to his round 1 win. to wrap up 2nd behind Cavalieri. Xray’s CJ Jelin won round 2 and secured an impressive 3rd place finish.

Taking an impressive win in the 40+ E-Buggy class was Tekin team manager, Randy Pike. Having slotted himself 1st on the grid for the 8-minute final, Pike pulled away and commanded the lead from start to finish. Dominic Favorito took home 2nd with Lee Hackney 3rd overall in the master’s class.
