AKA Sweeps Nitro Buggy Classes at Sidewinder Race
Latest race news from AKA:
Thunder Alley was the site of the 2010 Sidewinder Nitro Explosion race and the best in the world were in attendance racing their last big race before the upcoming World Championships. The entry list read like a world final. Pavidis, King, Cavalieri, Mayfield, Drake, Truhe, Tessman, etc… were all in attendance. For AKA the mains could not have gone any better! In the Sportsman Buggy A Main it was Sean Gaffney taking the win on AKA GRIDIRON soft (14003S) tires, AKA wheels and AKA closed cell inserts (34001MG). In the Intermediate A Main it was Colin Herzig taking the win on AKA ENDURO Soft (14006S) tires using the new AKA EVO wheel (24003W) and AKA closed cell inserts (34001MG). In the Expert Buggy A Main it was Cody King coming home with the win using AKA ENDURO soft (14006S) tires on the new AKA EVO wheel (24003Y) and AKA closed cell inserts (34001MG). Mark Pavidis also made the podium coming home a strong third using the new AKA IMPACT tire in medium (14007M) and the new AKA EVO wheel (24003W) with AKA closed cell inserts (34001MG).
Cody King and Mark Pavidis both commented after the race the the new EVO wheel really made the high speed sweeper much more predictable compared to the older wheels. AKA would like to thank these winners and all the drivers at the race who chose to run AKA tires.
