Latest driver news from Team Associated:
Since bursting onto the scene with his first major win in 2003, Ryan Maifield has been one of the top drivers in the world and a threat to win any event he enters. Since then, Maifield has been a factory team driver for the Associated/Reedy/LRP product group and as of today extends that relationship.
Over the years, Maifield has won countless titles, including multiple ROAR National Championships in a wide variety of categories, including 1:8 Gas Buggy, 1:8 Electric Buggy, 1:8 Gas Truggy, 2WD Electric Truck, 2WD Short Course, and 4WD Electric Buggy. Maifield has also been awarded the coveted Radio Control Car Action Driver of the Year Award for 2009 as voted on by the readers of the popular R/C magazine.
When asked about his re-signing, Maifield had this to say: “Team Associated has been behind me since the beginning of my racing career, and during the highs and lows they have always been supportive and constructive. I have many friends at Associated that are 100% committed to me and the products they produce, so it was a no-brainer when it came to sign a new contract to stay with the company that has been there through it all. I want to thank everyone at Team Associated and all the Team Associated customers for their support. I’ll see you at the track soon with my Reedy- and LRP-powered Associated vehicles.”
Team Manager, Brent Thielke, and long-time friend of Ryan, had this to say about the re-signing: “All of us here at Team Associated are excited to continue our relationship with Ryan. We look forward to supporting him as he continues to grow as a racer and ambassador for the sport we all have an unwavering passion for.”
