Misses first by less than the blink of a eye. After the 45 minute main. 1/100th of a second or 5 inches(approx.) Wow!!! This kid just might be Canada's first world champion one day. Congrats Ty.

This young guy is on fire!

As Martin said, check out the small different in total time between first and second place:

Report by Brent Thielke;
"As the sun set and the weather turned from crisp to down right cold, the 45 minute Expert Buggy main event went off. TQ man Drake got a good jump off the start and lead Truhe and Maifield for the first few laps. Bobbles by both Truhe and Maifield allowed Drake to get an early 5 second lead and for the pack to catch back up to Truhe and Maifield. The battle for 2nd was intense with 5 drivers vying for the same piece of track, something had to give. Truhe and Tessmann separated themselves from the pack and a few laps later Maifield did the same. With approximately 5 mins down in the main event the running order was Drake, Truhe, Tessmann & Maifield. As things settled down Drake again suffered from vehicle troubles and eventually pulled off the track. This moved Truhe to the lead, Tessman to second and Maifeld to third. A few bobbles by Truhe proved to be costly as he landed awkwardly over the back double and cracked a front arm. Limping around for 3-4 laps Truhe gave up the lead to Tessmann and eventually second to Maifield. Truhe pitted, changed the shock location hole and rejoined in 6th. This allowed the race between Tessmann and Maifield to take center stage and the two didn't disappoint. Swapping the lead multiple times, the two battled clean and worked their way around the now quite rough Thunder Alley track for over 20 minutes. As time dwindled down, Maifield lead and Tessmann was charging hard. A few small bobbles, combined with a stellar lap from Tessmann. gave the youngster from Canada an opportunity at victory in the final corner...a drag race to the line had to be decided by the computer and at the final printout, Maifield just edged out Tessmann by 1/100th of a second to claim his second victory of the day.

Thanks to the Thunder Alley/Sidewinder crew (Jimmy Bab*, Rob Jackson and Rick Hernandez) and track designer Levi Jackson for a very unique layout that tested the skills of pros and beginners alike. As the temperatures drop across the West Coast of the US, the Sidewinder Nitro Explosion un-officially ends the 2008 racing season for most racers. If the opportunity arises to attend this growing event, take it. A great facility, good competition and a well run event, what else can you ask for? See ya next year!"

I would love to watch him race in person. His interview was very humble in my opinion.
