Maifield & Cavalieri to go head to head in Reedy Race decider

Ryan Maifield and Ryan Cavalieri are to go head to head for the Reedy Race of Champions title in the final race of the 23rd running of the event, Maifield chasing a second title while Cavalieri goes for win number 4. The penultimate round of racing at OCRC Raceway saw both drivers win their respective races with ease maintaining the overnight status quo as both drivers continued today’s run of perfect scores. Separated by 1-point going into the decider, both drivers having a 3rd as their current throw out, it is advantage Maifield as Cavalieri must win to have a chance of title glory over the 2015 Champion. While driver’s starting positions are allocated based on a lottery, looking at the grid one might be forgiven for thinking the showdown has staged.  Starting on pole, Cavalieri has his Team Associated Spencer Rivkin alongside while starting directly behind the three time champion Maifield has Yokomo team-mate Lee Martin to his inside, Martin having just become the first European to register a win in 2WD today.  While all the focus will be on the Ryan & Ryan showdown, the final round will also decide who joins them on the podium.  On the podium last year, Rivkin will fight it out with former Champion Dustin Evans and Ty Tessmann but on paper Rivkin has been dealt the toughest race as all three line up in separate races.
