Ryan Maifield outpaced and outraced the competition on a very difficult ARC International Raceway track to win his second IFMAR World Championship in the same week. He sprinted forward from the fourth position on the grid to win the first leg of the A-Mains, came within 1.5 seconds of winning the second, and scored another second-place finish in A3 which gave him enough points to earn just the fourth sweep of 2WD and 4WD in history and the first since 2011.
Congratulations to Ryan Maifield and the Team Yokomo squad for winning the 2WD and 4WD world championships, and thank you to the Xiamen 3-Circles Battery Co., Ltd. for hosting a phenomenal world championship at the ARC International Raceway in Xiamen, China. We appreciate everyone for following along with us this week.
Here are the final overall finishing results:
