Xray have a report on their site from the recently held ROAR Region 9 Off Road Championships hosted by Mike’s Hobbies and Gulf Coast Raceway. Qualifying saw the buggy TQ go to Team Losi driver Dave Mangelsdorf while in the truggy class it was again Dave Mangelsdorf that took the TQ. The Expert truggy A-main saw Branham and Mangelsdorf battling together for the first 10 minutes waiting for one or the other to make a mistake and eventually Mangelsdorf did. Branham eventually ran away with the lead to win by a lap with Mangelsdorf finishing 2nd and Jimmy Matsler in 3rd. The Expert buggy A-main saw Jason Branham crash early in the main which dropped him to the back of the pack letting Dave Mangelsdorf and David Joor to run away with the lead. After the 9 min. mark Mangelsdorf and Joor were lapping Branham as he was struggling to get back on pace. Once Branham broke away from the back of the pack and moved up through the field and got his lap back and was once again on pace and was catching the leaders in a hurry. With 5 mins to go Branham caught Mangelsdorf and passed him to take the win.
