1/8 E-Buggy
AKA's Ryan Cavalieri would run strong all throughout qualifying and go onto start 3rd on the grid for the single 10-minute E-Buggy A-Main Event.

As the start tone sounded, Cavalieri got a great jump off the line with his AKA GRIDIRON 2's in Super Soft Compound. Cavalieri quickly worked his way to the front by the end of the 1st lap making some incredible passes. Cav would then begin clicking off fast and consistent laps to pull away from the field. With a few laps to go, Cav would hold off a hard charging Ty Tessmann to lead all 16 laps and take the 1/8 E-Buggy Championship!
