Jared Tebo takes ROAR Nitro Buggy title

Stateline R/C Raceway in Fremont, Indiana played host to the 2017 ROAR Fuel Off-road National Championship this past weekend. Mixed weather conditions made this challenging for both drivers and the organisers and in the premier Nitro Buggy class it was Xray’s Ty Tessmann who took the overall TQ honours courtesy of round wins in Q3 and Q4 while the only other round TQ holders, Team Associated’s Spencer Rivkin and Kyosho’s Jared Tebo had to settle for 2nd and 3rd respectively. In the finals things mixed up a bit with Tekno RC’s Ryan Lutz looking really fast but being a bit too inconsistent, this allowed Jared Tebo to take another national championship title, although after quite a winning drought at national-level events. Ryan Lutz had to settle for 2nd overall while defending champion, Spencer Rivkin completed the podium in 3rd after a great recovery following an early mistake.
