Maifield Does it Again in Arizona

A few weeks ago in our newsletter, I discussed Ryan Maifield’s win at the IFMAR 1/8 Scale Buggy World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand. This time he’s done it again at the Arizona State Championships.

Every year for the past 25 years, the fastest drivers in the southwest have been competing in Arizona for the State Championship. This year it was held at the infamous SRS in Scottsdale Arizona with over 150 cars racing at the track. Arizona’s own Ryan Maifield set a fast pace throughout the race, however during the second round he was passed by JConcepts Tanner Denney. By Saturday, Maifield had taken the lead again with his Team Associated B4.1.

On Sunday, the weather had become dark and cloudy, and before the drivers knew it, it was pouring. Luckily, after an hour they were back on the track with Maifield using his TQ starting spot to take an early lead over the rest of the drivers. With rain drops still hitting the track, it became difficult for the drivers to get traction. The race eventually ended with Maifield winning and Kinwald and Cavalieri rounding out the podium for the first A main.

A Proud Maifield After the Race

All in all the race was exciting and eventful and Team Associated’s Ryan Maifield continues to defend his title as the “2010 Driver of the Year.”  He has now taken five National Championships and has twice in a row been the ROAR Truggy National Champion. He has won fans all over the world with his passionate driving and approachable personality. I look forward to keeping an eye on him as he progresses even more in his upcoming races.
