MAIFIELD, TESSMANN, PHEND VIC­TO­RI­OUS AT 2017 ROAR 1/8 ELECTRIC NA­TION­ALS

Sil­ver Dol­lar RC Race­way in Chico, Cal­i­for­nia, hosted the ROAR 1/8 Electric Na­tion­als, with all of the fac­tory teams and big names bat­tling it out for the ti­tles. Al­though at­ten­dance was lower than ex­pected, the com­pe­ti­tion was still fierce. In the pre­mier 1/8 E-buggy class, Ryan Maifield (Mu­gen) put in a strong per­for­mance from his TQ po­si­tion to take the ti­tle in the first two mains. A hard-charg­ing Ty Tessmann (XRAY) se­cured se­cond and Team As­so­ci­ated’s Dreighton Stoub left to take the fi­nal podium spot. In E-truggy, Tessmann drove to the win ahead of some of the big­gest names in off-road rac­ing. Ryan Maifield put up a strong fight, but set­tled for se­cond. Ryan Cava­lieri took the last podium spot for third over­all with Team As­so­ci­ated. The 4X4 Short Course class saw TLR’S Dako­tah Phend come out on top af­ter set­ting the track ablaze for the TQ spot. Tan­ner Den­ney (TLR) kept things in­ter­est­ing by tak­ing the first A-main, but set­tled se­cond over­all with Ryan Maifield wheel­ing his Yokomo into third af­ter the three Mains.
