Myron Kinnard wins USGT at ROAR Region 3 Champs

The 2020 ROAR Region 3 Championships here held at Apex RC Raceway in Murfreesboro, Tennessee this past weekend. The event drew racers from all over the region and beyond, including Ohio, Missouri, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama Illinois and Indiana. Friday was an all day practice day. New layout and new drivers all over made for some good runs and the field of drivers was a who is who of National Champions including Eric Anderson, Kemp Anderson, Bill Sydor, John Barron, Justin Lyons and others top drivers that were set to all go after top 3 podium spots. As qualifying got under way, Team Associated/Reedy’s Myron Kinnard was able to take the TQ in round one of USGT from Ohio’s hotshot Von Perry of Capricorn/Motiv. In round 2 Myron was able to make some minor adjustments to his USGT car that put him two seconds ahead of his current TQ and at 98.9%. For the final round of the event Myron was able to hold on to his TQ for the event in USGT, just one second over Perry.

Sunday was going to be triple A-mains for all classes. Myron was looking to go two and out for GT and hoped to make the podium in 21.5T TC. On the first USGT main Myron made a mistake in the first corner and ended up on his lid. Once he was marshalled he put the hammer down to make a run to get back up front. After chasing for six minutes Myron was able to come within 0.188 of Perry. A2 was an amazing race in USGT with Myron and Perry swapping the lead on multiple occasions. Myron was finally able to get a little gap and made the most of it with a 2.1 second win. This would set the stage for the final main to decide the champion. A3 was set and the back and forth racing Myron and Von had displayed all weekend came down to the last six minutes of the event. Myron was ready at the tone and for six minutes of battling and the best show of sportsmanship by both of them. And at the end Myron was able to gain another ROAR Championship in 2020. Von Perry came in 2nd overall from Jacob Schneider in 3rd.

Thanks to Myron Kinnard for the report.
