The 2014 ROAR Region 11 1/8 Championships were held this past weekend at Skagit River Raceway in Burlington, Washington. It was just a one day event with practice in the morning hours, followed by 3 rounds of qualifying and mains. The track was very fast with incredible traction. In the 1/8 E-Buggy class it would be Kyosho America’s Jesse Munn who captured the overall TQ spot in qualifying by .4 seconds over TLR’s Jonathan Cantrell. Cantrell would take the win in A1, but Munn was back in winning fashion to steal A2. A3 was a close battle between the two, but Munn was able to make a late race charge to stretch out his lead and win the ROAR Region 11 1/8 E-Buggy title!
