For the first time in the “Dirt Nitro Challenge” history (12 years!), someone has TQ’d and won both Pro nitro 1/8-scale classes.
Kyosho’s Jared Tebo put on a clinic, dominating the event by TQ’ing and winning both the Pro Truggy (in a nailbiter of a finish against AE’s Ryan Maifield) and Pro Buggy nitro classes at The Nitro Pit in Whittman, Arizona. And no, that’s not sweat on Tebo’s sweatshirt–it’s two trophy presentations’ worth of champion’s champagne!
Tebo took home the trophies piloting his Kyosho Inferno MP9 TKI2 buggy and Inferno ST-RR truggy, both equipped with Team Orion engines, AKA wheels/tires/inserts, KO Propo radio gear and Maxima nitro fuel.

Jared Tebo will start the Buggy final at the 12th running of ‘The Dirt’ Nitro Challenge from pole position after putting in a carbon copy performance of yesterday when he wrapped up the Top Qualifier honours for Truggy. The US Champion improved his morning time by over 7 seconds to top the time sheets for Q2 from Ty Tessmann to make it the perfect weekend so far for the Kyosho team driver. Running the same set-up and AKA tyre combination as the morning run, Tebo said he is really liking the way his buggy is feeling on the track and with the TQ in the bag plans to work on his engine tune in Q3 having felt it ran a little too lean in Q2.
GO TEBO GO!!! GO TEAM KYOSHO!!!
