Results! ROAR Fuel Off-Road Nats

Dec 01, 2006 No Comments by

The ROAR Fuel Off-Road Nationals just wrapped at Gears R/C in Harlingen, Texas. This was the first time monster trucks were officially recognized as a class. Jay Halsey took top honors in the monster truck class driving a prototype Jammin’ Truggy powered by a big block.
Jason Ashton pulled out to an early lead driving a Mugen MSR X5-T, but suffered mechanical troubles that would take him out of contention.
Jared Tebo took the top spot in the 1/10 stadium truck class driving a Team Associated RC10GT. Word has it that Tebo’s truck was fitted with custom quick-change rear hubs, which allowed a rear tire change half way through the race. Tebo reportedly had a large lead, lost a critical screw in the suspension, was brought into the pits to have a new screw installed, and still made it back on the track in first place.
Team Kyosho’s Mark Pavidis and Trinity/Kyosho driver Ryan Cavalieri battled for almost the entire 1/8 buggy A-main. With just two laps to go, Cavalieri jumped over the top of Pavidis for the lead and the eventual win.
