Team Associated have announced the release of Carson Wernimont. Newly signed by Team Associated for the 2015 season, Wernimont immediately put in consistent A-Main performances in both electric and nitro off-road while racing his new Team Associated vehicles. As the 2015 racing season unfolded, it became obvious that the relationship was not in alignment with the original goals, and a decision was made to terminate Carson’s contract instead of fostering an unhealthy relationship through the agreed upon contract term. Everyone at Team Associated wishes Carson the best of luck in his future endeavours.
