This past weekend (November 19th) was the 2011 Kyosho Fall Classic, held at Revelation Raceway in Ontario California. This year’s event attracted many competitive Pro-Line drivers such as; Current ROAR 1:8 Buggy National Champion Ryan Cavalieri, Ty Tessmann, Richard Saxton, and Dylan Rodriguez, were all in attendance.
In the 1:8 Pro Truggy Class Ryan Cavalieri went into the main with a TQ in both rounds 1 and 2 to take the overall TQ for the class. Pro-Line driver Dylan Rodriguez started 2nd and Cody King 3rd.
In the 20-Minute A-Main Cavalieri broke away from the field after the first couple laps and never looked back. At the halfway point Cavalieri had stretched his lead to over half a lap on second. As the checkered flag waived, Cavalieri crossed the finish line first to take home the Win! Dylan Rodriguez and Jessie Robinson had a great battle for the 2nd position with Rodriguez edging out Robinson. Dylan used Holeshot M3 tires, Velocity Dish wheels, HD wing and BullDog Body.
In the 1:8 Pro Buggy Class Ty Tessmann started 2nd and Ryan Cavalieri came in at 3rd. A rough opening lap had Tessmann and Cavalieri at the back of the field. At the halfway point Cody King was out front with the lead but Cavalieri put on a charge and worked his way up to 2nd.
With 2 laps to go, Cavalieri made his way right up behind King and then made a pass for the lead halfway through the lap and then King passed Cavalieri a few corners later. With King leading and Cavalieri in 2nd starting their last lap, the Championship was down to this. With 3 corners from the finish, King made a slight mistake and Cavalieri got around him for the win.
Pro-Line had a chance to speak with Ryan Cavalieri about the event and here is what he said,
“Everything went well at the race overall. The track that Dana put together was good for the event. The truck main went to plan and I was able to TQ and lead the race from start to finish. I ran M3 Hole Shots Tires for qualifying and the mains.
Buggy was a little rocky to start but was able to I put together 25 minutes of good solid running. Good pits from my dad and Richard Saxton gave me an edge and I managed to squeak by right at the end. I ran the new M4 Tazer Tires for qualifying and the mains. I enjoyed some good racing with Cody.”
