Team Associated Wins Four R.O.A.R. National Titles
(Pictured: Dreighton Stoub (left) and Spencer Rivkin.)
Each year the best racers from the United States and Canada gather to compete for the R.O.A.R. 1:10 Electric Off-Road National Championships. With four vehicles in two categories of racing (17.5 and Modified), eight titles were up for grabs. This year's event makes its first trip to EN Hobbies in Columbus, OH, which features a dirt clay racing surface that provided high grip conditions and very tight racing.
In the premier class of 2WD Modified Buggy Team Associated's Spencer Rivkin earned the top qualifying position with his B6.1DL and started on pole for the triple A Mains. Capitalizing on this, Spencer went on to drive a flawless A2 and A3 main event to secure the win and retain his title as 2WD R.O.A.R. National Champion. Spencer wasn't done winning, though. He also raced his way to the front of the 2WD Modified Short Course with his SC6.1 to take his first National Championship in that class and Team Associated's tenth consecutive (and undefeated) 2WD Modified Short Course National Championship.
In the highly competitive 2WD 17.5 Buggy class, privateer Dreighton Stoub was the class of the field. Choosing to race the B6.1FL, Dreighton checked out from the field and won a long-overdue National Championship in this class. Much like Spencer, Dreighton wasn't done winning, either. Borrowing a friend's B64, Dreighton also TQ'd and won the 13.5 4WD Buggy category to earn his second title of the event.
With a majority of the field choosing to use Team Associated products, we are proud to be the #1 choice of racers. With team support around the world, you're sure to find a representative at the track to help you dial in your vehicles. Congratulations to the winners, A-Main finishers and to EN Hobbies for hosting an unforgettable R.O.A.R. National Championship.
