This year’s ROAR Region 11 off-road championships were held by Tri-Cities RC in Pasco, WA.
With temperatures reaching triple digits, the fresh track layout firmed up quickly and allowed a groove to build quickly during practice. However, late night thunderstorms washed a majority of the groove away, and caused a rain delay Saturday morning.
Once the rain had concluded Saturday morning, the track crew had the track ready to go and racing was underway. After 4 rounds of qualifying, Team Associated sat on top in 4WD Modified and Truck Modified, held by Associated driver Chris Bridgewater. Modified 2WD SC TQ was held by privateer Tim Hethcox.
Sunday’s main events brought more domination from Team Associated in the Modified classes, with Associated’s Chris Bridgewater taking home the win in Modified 2WD, Modified 4WD, and Modified Truck. Privateer Tim Hethcox also sealed up the win in 2WD Modified Short Course.
