E-Buggy win for Ty Tessmann at Lonestar Challenge

Thornhill RC Raceway in Hutto, Texas played host to the Lonestar Challenge last weekend. The event also doubled as the nationals warmup and the event, organised by The Dirt, attracted most of the country’s fast 1/8th off-road racers. Friday was practice day on a wet track, it was watered a couple of times throughout the day which gave good grip. The track started to get smooth and polished up by Friday night and in the first round of electric buggy Xray’s Ty Tessmann qualified 3rd which he backed up by two TQs which would give him the overall TQ. Sunday was mains day, and drivers were still trying to get grip on the polished surface. The organisers did double A-mains for E-Buggy with both mains counting to determine the overall winner. A1 was up first, Tessmann had a mistake fairly early on that he needed to be marshalled for which dropped him quite a ways back to 4th. Ty got back in the groove and was able to make his way by 3rd and 2nd place and then had a good battle with Agama’s Ryan Lutz before making a pass back to the lead which is where he would finish the race. A2 was smoother, Ty was able to just put in clean laps and lead tone to tone, which would give him the overall win in from Ryan Lutz 2nd and Serpent’s Brandon Rose 3rd.
