Matt Schreffler takes Pro Truggy at Byron Western Cup – first time out!

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 2:28 pm

New Team Durango driver Matt Schreffler took his brand new DNX408T and DNX408 vehicles to Revelation Raceway this past weekend, to compete at the Byron Fuels Western Cup – where Matt took the win in Pro Truggy and after a bad start took second in Pro Buggy!  A fantastic first-time-out result for Matt and his Team Durango rides.

Last weekend I attended the Byrons Western Cup race located at Revelation Raceway in Ontario, CA. This would be the first race with my new Durango cars and I was looking forward to the race. I had only just finished building my DNX408T for the race weekend, so this would mark the very first time running the truck. My cars seemed to be very good in morning practice and I was ready for the two rounds of qualifying and main events.

Truck qualifying went very well and I was able TQ and start on pole for the main followed by my teammate Carson Wernimont starting second on the grid.


I would go on to put in a solid run in the truck final from the TQ spot and secure the win for the event in Pro Truggy. In the buggy class with my DNX408 I would have to settle for a mid pack starting position due to some poor driving by myself, but going into the main I felt very comfortable with my equipment and was looking to put in a solid finish. The buggy final would get off to a slow start and I would have to make a come back finish in the end after an early flame out which lost me a lot of valuable time. I would go on to finish the final in the second position which I was very happy with after all that had taken place in the final. I was very happy with the results of the first race with my new cars and look forward to the upcoming season with Team Durango products.
