Tebo & Cavalieri dominate CRCRC Winter Champs

Tebo & Cavalieri victorious at CRCRC Winter Champs

The 25th Annual CRCRC Winter Mid-West Electric Off-Road Championships were held this past weekend in Jeffersonville, OH. This is known as the first big electric off-road race of the new year as well as being one of the longest on-going races to date. This years event reached an outstanding 355 entries. Team Orion would once again have 2 of their aces in attendance this year with Jared Tebo and Ryan Cavalieri. The overall qualifying order in each class was determined by the points system which would take each drivers 2 best qualifying round finishes out of 4. The top 10 drivers from each class would automatically go into the A-Main Events. This would be the first year CRCRC incorporated the bump-up system to their electric race. Lower main events up through the B’s were ran earlier on main day. The top 2 finishers from each main event would bump into the next main. This would make a 12 car field for the triple A-Main Events.
