Default 2018 DNC Dirt Nitro Challenge

Didn't see a thread for this year, so I kicked it off.

Ryan Lutz put up an early track walk on YouTube yesterday: https://www.facebook.com/lutzrc/vide...0786414956663/

So who is going to take it this year? Will Mayfield sweep the field again?

that track is sick!!! US tracks need to incorporate more of the Euro style tracks with the pavers, turf and other random surfaces...soo cool.

Im assuming there will be a live stream???

I realize this is your opinion which is totally cool with me. But I hope that never happens IMO.

Most of those tracks with the multiple surfaces are permanent tracks,layouts rarely change. That would get boring.....

Is Cody running the old Serpent truggy or do they have a proto?

I think its still the 811 Truggy, there has been talks of new truggy based on the newer SRX8 platform.

I don’t know much about serpent but I think the guys are happy with the current platform, kinda like the tekno guys and their truck... in years past serpent never had a big team showing at the dnc, 4-5 guys. Hope Cody does good for them. I hear they appreciate the drivers like tekno does....

What’s up with Max Mort racing expert and not pro?
