ROAR On-road Nats: Hara takes Mod, Francis wins 19-turn, Ellis captures Stock

Speedline Hobbies, Largo, FL: Atsushi Hara absolutely dominated the Modified class and even lapped the entire field in every qualifier and in both of the Mains to take the championship. With a win in 19-turn, Team Losi’s Matt Francis showed he still has what it takes as he enters his self-proclaimed last season of racing. Drew Ellis of Team XRAY/RC America earned his first National championship with a win in Stock Touring. Mike Lufaso won the 1/12-scale Modified class to give LRP/Reedy a second National title using brushless power—a feat yet to be matched.

Tamiya TNX Wins Monster Madness II

Tamiya was the big winner at the second annual RC Car Action Monster Madness race, hosted by RC Madness in Enfield, CT. Team drivers Jimmy Jacobsen (who took the TQ spot) and David Jun dominated the small block class with their TNX trucks, besting a field that included Traxxas’ hard-charging Steve Slayden and his Revo. Slayden was gaining on the front-running Tamiya drivers, but flamed out before he could close the gap. Jacobsen took the checkered flag with two laps on the field, followed by Jun and Slayden. Congratulations Tamiya!
