In A-Main #3, Tessmann would finish a very close second behind Team Associated’s Spencer Rivkin. Tessmann & Rivkin would both tie for the overall Win from there 2 best finishes. Ty Tesmmann would Win the tie breaker based on laps and times as he was the only driver to make the extra lap in his A-Main two win.

In the 2wd Modified Short Course class, Dakotah Phend would dominate qualifying to take the overall TQ honors. Dakotah would then have an EPIC 8-minute single A-Main battle with Spencer Rivkin where both drivers would never be more than 5 feet apart during the entire race. When the checkered flag waived, it was Dakotah Phend taking the impressive win. Both Tessmann and Phend use the Team Orion’s new HMX ESC.
