Ty Tessmann completed a lights to flag victory as he held his lead from pole in the 45 min final at Silver Dollar RC Raceway – the chasing pack got off to a clean start and followed through in grid order, Ryan Maifield 2nd until a mistake allowed Lutz to challenge, further mistakes from Maifield dropped him towards the back, this time Tessmann with a small gap out front, Phend got past as well as Drew Moller, the pair trying their hardest to stay on pace with Tessmann but struggling to.

Eventually Dakotah Phend seemed able to mount a small challenge, but the gap never really closed to less than 6-8 secs outfront, Tessmann managing it well, even a bad mistake from Tessmann didn’t spice up a pretty straightforward uneventful final, Phend managing a similar one as he clipped the twin corner pylons at speed, donuting on his roof before finally making it into pitlane.

This mistake allowed Ryan Lutz to assume 2nd, a position he would hold until the finish, he kept Tessmann honest, but never under much serious pressure. Phend would roll in a slightly dejected 3rd – sadly not a repeat of the magic truck final we witnssed last year in Texas, however a more than deserved win for Ty Tessmann – now the buggy final awaits.
