Sun City Raceway of Canutillo, Texas held the U.S. Open Fuel Championship this past weekend, attracting nearly 115 entries. In the 1/8th Nitro Buggy class it was Xray’s Ty Tessmann with the overall TQ and he would also take a tone to tone win in the 45-minute A-main event, leaving behind 4th place qualifier, Tekno RC’s Jared Tebo in 2nd despite the latter being able to hang with Ty in the opening stages of the race. HB Racing’s Spencer Heckert would complete the top 3 result a lap behind Jared while TLR’s Tanner Denney and Team Associated’s Chris Boice completed the top 5 results.

In the E-Buggy class the single 10-minute A-main was a pretty entertaining affair with the top positions swapping constantly. In the end it was runner-up after the qualifiers, Ty Tessmann, who was able to get past 3rd place qualifier, Jared Tebo in the closing stages for his second win this weekend. Jared had to settle for 2nd overall, Spencer Heckert came in 3rd to make another podium while Brandon Rose and top qualifier, Ryan Maifield completed the top 5.
