Team Associated have confirmed that they are parting ways with multiple ROAR National Champion Ryan Maifield effective July 1st. In a message on their FB page, which lists the impressive collection of victories achieved together since they signed the young Arizona racer back in 2003, Team Associated said the following.
Discovered by industry legend Mike Reedy as a young teenager, Ryan burst onto the scene in 2003 by taking an impressive victory at the prestigious Cactus Classic with the just released RC10B4. For more than a decade the dynamic combination of Associated, Reedy, LRP and Maifield compiled a list of championships that is one of the most impressive to date. Team Associated and Reedy have nurtured many champions over the years, and Ryan Maifield will go down in history as one of the best. All of us at Team Associated and Reedy have cherished the time helping Ryan grow into the champion he is today, and wish him the best of luck in all his endeavours; both on and off the track.
Continuing to run with other main sponsors JConcepts and Novarossi, Ryan is expected to confirm his new car and electronics sponsor (expected to be TLR and Orion) in the coming days/weeks ahead of the 2014 ROAR Electric Nationals in Florida and the IFMAR Worlds which will take place later this year in Italy.
