Tessmann takes DNC Truck title


Ty Tessmann successfully defended his Dirt Nitro Challenge truck title as he edged and threaded his way through the final having started p7 on the grid, initially Adam Drake led away with Tebo chasing him hard for the opening five laps, eventually Tebo would get past as Drake made an error, further errors from top qualifier Drake would see him drop back eventually finishing 4th. Ryan Lutz having started 2nd had a poor getaway and unfortunately broke his car – ending his challenge early. Tebo looked to have cruise control firmly on however hard charging Ty Tessmann who looked off colour throughout qualifying but found his true rhythm in  the main as he drove brilliantly from a midpack starting position. For a couple of laps Tebo & Tessmann were close on track however as the final fuel stop filtered through the momentum swung Ty’s way as Tebo crashed losing time but also looked to struggle with an engine that went rich, giving him trouble to make the center double. 3rd place went to a lively Ryan Maifield – never in the hunt for the win but comfortably took 3rd an epic style as usual.
