Ty Tessman Continues His Win Streak at Sidewinder Nitro Explosion

Nov 01 2011

Another Great Weekend for Tessman!

This past weekend Ty Tessman attended the Sidewinder Nitro Explosion at ARC Raceway in Temecula, CA.  
Simply put, Ty dominated the expert truggy class.   It started with Tessman TQ'ing all three rounds of qualifying, and taking the pole for the main.   At the tone, Ty got a clean start to the final race and was followed closely by Ryan Cavelieri, who qualified in second spot.   Tessman and Cavelieri quickly pulled away from the field, and began a battle that would last the entire race.   Several times Tessman would pull slightly ahead of Cavelieri, then Cavelieri would close the gap again to make for a great race.   The two would battle to the finish, with the gap between never more than 6 seconds, and Cavelieri right on Tessman's bumper many times.   With Cavelieri keeping the pressure on, Ty kept his cool and never relinquished the lead.  By the end of the race Tessman and Cavelieri had lapped the entire field.  Ty took the win by only 2.3 seconds in one of the best races of the weekend.

In the expert buggy class, Tessman qualified 4th, and was determined to improve his position during the main.   The track was extremely tough, and after the 35 minute battle, Ty finished on the podium, taking 3rd in a very competitive race.   

When asked about his set up and the track, Tessman had this to say, "the OS powered Hotbodies D8 and D8T, fueled by Byron's, handled the loose, rough track perfectly.  And the Proline tires gave me all the traction I needed.  I'd like to thank all my sponsors for the best equipment available."
