Ryan Lutz opened up his Dirt Nitro Challenge in style as he TQ’d the opening round of today’s three rounds of truck qualifying, yesterday’s top seed David Ronnefalk would suffer a couple of mistakes as the majority of top drivers struggled round the track which features very technical sections testing drivers’ abilities.

Lutz would assume the lead in the final heat, slowing reeling in P2 man Maifield, Lutz was able to race his way past Maifield but it took a couple of laps before he found a way though the tight infield. XRAY signing Ty Tessmann would claim 3rd overall.
