US ROAR 1/8 Off-road Nationals – Xray Report



“The event was held in beautiful Beaumont, California at Thunder Alley R/C raceway and had 264 entries in total. When Jason Branham and I arrived at the track first thing on Wednesday morning we were in awe of just how magnificent of a facility Thunder Alley was. We had both heard stories and watched videos on the internet to try and get a feel for what to expect but none of that could do the track the justice it deserved. It wasn’t a very large track but it was very high-speed, had HUGE jumps, and had what I would estimate to be almost 20 feet of total elevation change throughout the racing surface.

In attendance for U.S. Team Xray/RCAmerica was Josh Wheeler, Jason Branham, Brian Kinwald, Ray Norte, Dave “ The Mangler” Manglesdorf, myself, and a few others.
