Ryan Maifield triple at 22nd Dirt Nitro Challenge

Ryan Maifield has completed the triple Crown at this year’s Dirt Nitro Challenge, the Mugen/JConcepts driver taking a clean sweep of all the Pro classes. Held at Thunder Alley in California, the 22nd running of the World Famous event, saw little to no foreign entries for the first time in years as Covid prevented teams traveling from abroad. In the Pro Buggy class it was TLR/JConcepts driver Dakotah Phend that would take the pole position ahead of HB Racing’s Cole Ogden. In the final, having starting from 4th, Maifield would use his vast experience as a previous multiple winner of this event, to come through and win ahead of Ogden in 2nd with Mugen driver Tanner Denney completing the podium in 3rd. Pro E Buggy again saw Phend on the pole position, but again was unable to convert his front starting spot into the win as Maifield took the overall win ahead of his JConcepts’ team mate Phend in 2nd, with the Team Associated of Spencer Rivkin bringing it home in 3rd. In the Pro Truggy it was more of the same as Phend would again capture the overall TQ but be passed by Maifield in the 45 minute final for the win, Tekno RC’s Joe Bornhorst would work his way up from the 11th place starting position to capture the final podium spot.
