Maifield. It looks like he was destined to be the replacement for Drake and now the next phase of this big change at TLR is kicking in.

He didnt beat everyone by 2 laps.

And last years nitro challenge Ronnefalk was beating him even with a flameout, but then he flamed out another 3 times.

He finished with 2 more laps than everybody else. That means he beat everyone by 2 laps. No one can hold his pace for a long time except maifield. everyone else has to push to hold his pace he just seems to be on a sunday drive where ever he races. Phend got screwed in the ROAR nats with crashing over the birm but still I dont think anyone has anything for him.

You are funny. Ty has "clearly" won almost every race he has entered recently in nitro buggy. If anything he is becoming more dominant. Guys are going to HB to get some of that mojo. Ronnefalk is awesome though they will make a great team.

It has nothing to do with HB.The reason is so fast is because he is Canadian.

Totally...
If you watch closely a World map, Canada is above USA. Air is cleaner and colder the higher you are relative to South Pole, therefore the air is better and more dense so his body gets at least twice the O2 one of us middle Earth would get. He lives in a snowy place so his eyes can pick differences no one can and thats why his eyes are bright blue, to see the blue groove.

May want to pick a race that Ty's not good at to question how dominant he was in 14'.

2014 Dirt- Ty was in first all but laps 6 thru 12 out of 60 laps made in Buggy. That's a 90% lead by my math. Ronnefalk was impressive coming in 4th with the engine issues. Lead All 62 laps in truggy. Wow


Ifmar worlds posted results:
1 Tessmann, Ty 2 94 52:34.122 37.183 9998
2 Cavalieri, Ryan 5 92 52:02.555 37.757 9998
3 Wernimont, Carson 7 92 52:06.669 37.597 4.114 9998

You were there and would know if a timing error had occurred. He still lapped the field. He and Maifield made a mistake. One vehicle survived, which is racing

Tebo is the only other driver that can beat Ty, Tebo just lost his Mojo. Tebo is having issues. He is not even in the top 5 anymore.

Dakotah needs a better buggy/truggy, he would be unstoppable.

There's no denying when Ronnefalk's car came around the corner it was driven much harder closer to the edge of being on 2 wheels at points when compared to every other car hitting the same corner. You could just hear it lap after lap. This year will heat up even more Sunday night. I can't wait....

I didnt say Ty wasn't dominant. I said he didn't win by two laps, (which is true, if I cross the line 1 second before you, and make the next lap, do I win by a lap? Well you can argue that point but not when saying someone is one lap faster. And Ronnefalk actually looked like he had him beat at NC, but he flamed out multiple times. So he isn't unbeatable. Did he dominate? Yes. Is he unbeatable? No. Is he World Champion? Yes. Is he the best driver in the world? One of them.

Let's stick to reality.
