Check out the top 15 from each of the pro classes after the first seeding round of practice. One more round to go to determine where everyone will start for qualifying.
Ryan Cavalieri would come out fastest in the first round of seeding for pro nitro buggy. The Sworkz driver would top the times with a 1:51.6 and a fast lap of a 36.7. The rest of the top 5 would be about a 10th slower consecutively. Marco Baruffolo (Xray), Davide Ongaro (Team Associated), Ty Tessmann (Xray), and David Ronnefalk (HB Racing) would find themselves at the top of the charts behind Cavalieri.
Joe Bornhorst (Tekno) topped the times in pro truggy with a 1:49.2 pace. (Cavalieri is shown on top for the round but had an extremely short lap that isn't omitted on the ranking). Cole Ogden (HB Racing) and Ryan Maifield (Mugen Seiki) would round out the top 3 5 tenths behind Bornhorst. Ryan Lutz (Agama) and Tanner Denney (Mugen Seiki) would round out the top 5.
Dakotah Phend (TLR) was the class of the field in pro ebuggy taking the top time with a 1:49.7 which was almost a second faster than anyone else. CJ Jelin (Kyosho) would seed 2nd for the round with Joe Bornhorst in 3rd. Ty Tessmann and David Ronnefalk would round out the top 5 for the round.
