2015 Silver State Banner

In the Open Nitro Truggy A-Main HPI/HB’s Ty Tessmann got out to an early lead, but would fall short suffering a couple of flamouts never recovering and finishing the day in sixth place. This made way for Maifield, Lutz and Tebo. TLR’s Ryan Maifield and Tekno RC’s Ryan Lutz would swap the lead several times but in the end Maifield would come out on top because Lutz would crash too many time trying to catch back up to Maifield. Tebo would also share in the spolight towards the second part of the race by leading several laps but couldn’t hang on for the win. In the end Ryan Maifield would take the win 2.3 seconds over Ryan Lutz coming in second and Jared Tebo would round out the podium over eight seconds back…
