Ryan Maifield and JConcepts take 1st ever ROAR Short Course Open National Championship. JConcepts picks up 4 ROAR National titles, 3 via control tire and 1 via open performance. The scene was fresh and exciting at the 2010 ROAR Off-Road Nationals. With many of the major teams putting in a push that hasn’t been seen in many years, competition and stakes were at an all-time high. With the introduction of Short Course and the steady popularity of 1/10th buggies and trucks, 305 entries assembled into Joliet, Illinois for the largest 1/10th Off-Road race of the year. With an agreed upon or control tire used in 6 of 8 classes, a level playing field was present for all participating drivers.
