Lots of movement around the rankings with the ROAR Nationals and EURO Contest both qualifying for the rankings. Spencer Rivkin (Team Associated) took home the win at the ROAR Nationals followed by Ryan Cavalieri (SWORKz), and Ryan Lutz (Agama) in 3rd. The big story of the event was former #2 ranked driver in the world Ryan Maifield (Mugen Seiki) that did not make the final due to some mechanical problems in the semi giving him a 29th place finish. However it wasn’t Just R.Maifield that had an uncharacteristic result over the weekend, The #1 ranked driver in the World David Ongaro (Team Associated) had an 10th place finish at the EURO Contest. Despite D.Ongaro’s finish, he did still retain the #1 ranking. Robert Batlle (Mugen Seiki) jumped to the #4 ranking with his win at the EURO Contest followed by Juan Carlos Canas (SWORKz) and Marco Baruffolo (XRAY) in 3rd.
