For the 2012 installment of the ROAR Electric Off Road Nationals, the decision was made to create a “Super Nationals” combining 2WD Buggy, 4WD Buggy and Racing Truck all in to one four-day event. Then with a day off between, the second half of the event concludes with 2WD Short Course, 4WD Short Course and 1:8 eBuggy. We are now currently halfway through the event and Team Associated has already secured five National Championships.
The standout performance of the first half of the event was from Ryan Cavalieri and his LRP-powered Team Associated vehicles. Cavalieri TQ’d 2WD, 4WD, and Truck Modified with his Factory Team B4.1 Worlds Edition, Factory Team B44.1, and Factory Team T4.1. In dominant fashion, Cavalieri took the win in all three classes by winning the first two of the triple A Mains to complete the event sweep. This is the second time that RC has completed the sweep of the ROAR Nationals, with the first time coming in 2007 at ARCOR Raceway in Albuquerque, NM. Joining Cavalieri with TQ’s and wins for Team Associated were Nolan Anderson in Truck Stock and Zack Genova in 4WD Stock.
