Joel Johnson, Vice President of Kyosho America and an accomplished racer with two World titles and countless National Championships to his credit, can now add 2007 ROAR 1/8 On-Road Nation Champion to his dossier.
Driving a 2007 Kyosho Evolva, Johnson qualified fifth for the A-main. He decided to set-up his car for a long, conservative run during the final that would not include a tire change, while many other drivers stopped mid-race for a tire change. Johnson’s measured pace paid off around the mid-point of the one-hour final, passing most of the front-runners as they stopped for tires. After swapping the lead back and forth a few times due to pit stops, Johnson finally took the lead for good in the last ten minutes, scoring the win as the 2007 ROAR 1/8 On-Road National Champion with his Sirio-powered Kyosho Evolva 2007.
