Ty Tessmann’s busy month!
Ty Tessmann has been extremely busy during the last month, starting with the RCX Hobby expo in Pomona, CA on March 19 and 20 where he raced both 1:8 Buggy and 1:8 Truck classes in the Supercross race. Ty won both his semis in buggy and truck to qualify him to run in the main where on Saturday after a very close race with Adam Drake he came in 2nd in Truck, on Sunday Ty was able to bring home the gold in the buggy race leaving his competitors behind!
The following week March 24-27, he travelled to Washington State where he competed in the ROAR touring carpet nationals, even though touring car is not Ty’s specialty, he did extremely well by qualifying 2nd in mod touring using the PROTOform Mazda Speed6 LW. Unfortunately in A1 and A2 Ty broke so he finished 10th overall.
The next weekend, April 1-3 Ty was back in Beaumont, CA at Thunder Alley RC Raceway at the 1:8 Off Road Nationals warm up race. Ty qualified 2nd in Truck and went on to take the win after a hard fought battle with Jared Tebo. In buggy Ty qualified 4th and ended up in 2nd place after the hour long main.
Finally the next weekend April 7-10, was the Silverstate Nitro Challenge in Boulder City, Nevada, one of the biggest races of the year. Ty TQ’d the 1:8 Truck class and dominated the entire main from start to finish bringing home the win. In 1:8 Buggy, Ty qualified 2nd but a rock got hung up in the flywheel causing a flameout so Ty finished 10th overall.
