Kyosho are reporting that their factory driver Scott Kimbrow TQ’ed and won the Open Class at the 2008 ROAR 1/8 Fuel On-Road Nationals held at the 301 Raceway in Brandywine, Maryland. The start of the A-main saw him jump straight into the lead which he held onto easily in the first half of the race. A long pit stop that included a tire change cost him 47 seconds, which shuffled him back to 2nd place behind Mugen’s Mike Swauger but Kimbrow managed to close to within five seconds after being nearly 16 seconds behind. The building anticipation of a door-to-door dash for the finish was scuttled however when Swauger made a mistake around the 50-minute mark and broke his car. Kimbrow cruised to the finish nearly a lap and a half ahead of 2nd, scoring the title of National Champion, his 3rd in a row. In the Masters class it was Eli Ezrow, who was also running a Kyosho Evolva M3, that TQ’ed and won the title in that class. Ezrow started on the front row but within two laps was relegated to 3rd place but was back into 2nd place by lap 21. Bowerman, who got through the first lap cleanly, wasn’t going to be as easy to catch, but with Ezrow about 14 seconds behind Bowerman ran into trouble handing him the position and allowing him to take top honors.
