Once more the season cycle gets underway with our first flyaway race, the annual Dirt Nitro Challenge (or DNC) held at the Fear Farm RC Raceway in Phoenix, Arizona USA. NeoBuggy will be present at the event with live coverage and reports from Thursday directly with 1/8 Truck qualifying.
Here’s a little reminder of what’s to come later this week, tune in to Neo to see how all the winter silly season swaps pan out with the likes of Ty Tessmann entering his first ‘big race’ under the XRAY banner, Ryan Maifield now in post TLR-Exile with Mugen Seiki, World Champion David Ronnefalk and defending Champion Ryan Cavalieri both now wheeling JConcepts rubber and the return of Robert Batlle to the DNC after missing the event for many years. It’s gonna be good!
The 18th The Dirt Nitro Challenge will be held from the 22nd to 26th of February at the Fear Farm R/C Raceway in Phoenix, Arizona. Joey Christensen and The Dirt crew will work their magic to create yet another set signature DNC tracks (1/10 track, 1/8 track, and 1/5 track). “Don’t miss out the largest gas off-road race in the World” and send in those entries while there is still time!
The Dirt Crew are happy to announce that the 18th annual, 2017 The Dirt Nitro Challenge will once again be held at the famous Fear Farm facility in Phoenix AZ! The dates are set at February 22nd-26th 2017. The new entry and class limit proved to be a success last year with the race selling out and allowing the event to run smoothly with a scheduled race itinerary and 10 pm finish time! The 2017 DNC will continue to implement the same format as last year to insure a successful, scheduled event! The 2017 DNC planning is well under way and we are excited about bringing you the biggest gas off-road race on the planet!!! For more information visit www.THEDIRT.us or email email@example.com.
This past weekend, the 2016 Dirt Nitro Challenge was once again held at The Fear Farm in Goodyear, Arizona. Joey & The Dirt track crew did an amazing job on the track build for this years event and it was a big hit with all the drivers. Kenny Brosh & Jimmy Babcock did another great job keeping the race program moving silky smooth all weekend long. With the total 1/8 race entries being limited to 600 this year, the event went off without a hitch and was very well received by all the racers.
With few spectators expecting a repeat of last night’s brilliant truck final, they were gladfully rewarded something even more exciting, dramatic and entertaining as Maifield, Tessmann, Cavalieri and Phend went head to head – toe to toe for the 45 minute duration, individual title quests looking unbeatable at points whilst others’ down n’ out only for some sudden turn of events to swing the favours once again.
The main started out with Maifield making a somewhat tentative getaway, perhaps the moisture in the track, or even simply the rough conditions not suiting his car, Tessmann hustling him as well as Phend, Cavalieri staying in contention but not part of the headlines early on.
