Tebo moves closer to first Reedy title with 2 rounds to go

Jared Tebo has moved closer to his first ever Reedy Race of Champions title after the Tekno driver made up for a disappointing start to the final day’s racing by taking his 3rd win of 2WD in the fourth round.  After giving up a win in the previous round, Tebo converted a 7th place starting position into a win over pole sitter Ty Tessmann and with two rounds to go he holds a 2-point lead over Ryan Maifield with Spencer Rivkin who is carrying a 5th sitting third.  Also starting P7, Maifield added his fourth win of the event thanks in part to team-mate Ryan Cavalieri.  Making a late mistake, the same place Tebo threw away his win in the previous round, this allowed Cavalieri to go to the front but the new Yokomo signing took a wide line that allowed Maifield back to the front for a win that keeps the former champion in the hunt.  With the best starting position of the trio, starting third, Rivkin couldn’t respond to the pace of pole sitter Broc Champlin and had to settle for a P2 1.6-seconds back on his Associated team-mate.  For defending champion Dustin Evans the round netted him a P4 from 10th, a result that effectively ends his hopes of a third title.
