Race Report by Colton Kiefer
The 2015 Futaba/ O.S. Nitro Challenge is in the books and it was an incredible event. This year featured an excellent but challenging track from Sik Track Designs (aka Levi Jackson). With all the top guns from the Midwest and factory drivers Ryan Lutz, Joe Bornhorst, Josh Wheeler, Matt Gosch, and Michael Paige, the competition was going to be tough.

The format for this race is different than most races. Practice on Thursday evening, and on Friday. With the first round of qualifying on Friday night under the lights. The final 2 round of qualifying on Saturday and the raffle, Dash for Cash, and all the mains on Sunday.
