Each year the best racers from the United States and Canada gather to compete for the R.O.A.R. 1:10 Electric Off-Road National Championships. With four vehicles in two categories of racing (17.5 and Modified), eight titles were up for grabs. This year’s event makes its first trip to EN Hobbies in Columbus, OH, which features a dirt clay racing surface that provided high grip conditions and very tight racing. In the premier class of 2WD Modified Buggy Team Associated’s Spencer Rivkin earned the top qualifying position and started on pole for the triple A Mains. Capitalizing on this, Spencer went on to drive a flawless A2 and A3 main event to secure the win and retain his title as 2WD R.O.A.R. National Champion. XRAY’s Ty Tessmann came in 2nd and Ryan Maifield in 3rd.

Spencer wasn’t done winning, though. He also raced his way to the front of the 2WD Modified Short Course to take his first National Championship in that class in front of Dakotah Phend (TQ) in 2nd while Alex Kosciuszek came in 3rd. It was Team Associated’s tenth consecutive (and undefeated) 2WD Modified Short Course National Championship.

In the highly competitive 2WD 17.5 Buggy class, privateer Dreighton Stoub was the class of the field. Dreighton checked out from the field and won a long-overdue National Championship in this class. Davey Batta finished in 2nd and Galen McCreary in 3rd.

Much like Spencer, Dreighton wasn’t done winning, either. Borrowing a friend’s B64, Dreighton also TQ’d and won the 13.5 4WD Buggy category to earn his second title of the event. AJ Marasco in 2nd and Galen McCreary in 3rd completed the podium.
