The 2010 Fall Off Road Championship took place this weekend in Jefferson City, MO. Overall, the races were action packed, but one class stole the show – the 2WD Mod Buggy.
In the closest race of them all, TQ Lendel Smith, Mike Garrison, and Lou Colmo started out front. The top three drivers were close
for several laps before Colmo made a slight mistake, which allowed Smith and Garrison to extend their lead on the pack. The racing was extremely exciting as the two went back and forth lap after lap, swapping the lead more than five times. Both drivers crossed the loop just in time to get one more lap, with X-Factory’s Lendel Smith leading the way and Garrison less than a car’s length behind. With two corners to go, Team Associated’s Mike Garrison made his move by cutting inside for a last-minute pass. Smith made a slight mistake as he followed Garrison into the last rhythm section, securing the win for Mike Garrison.
Team Associated comes out successful once again – these guys are good!
Some news from Team Associated - The RC10B4.1 Factory Team Kit is now in stock and ready for purchase. This isn’t just any buggy. Team Associated’s B4 platform has been undefeated on a world level since its release in 2003, winning four I.F.M.A.R. World Championships (Billy Easton, 2003; Neil Cragg, 2005; Hayato Matsuzaki, 2007; Martin Achter, 2009). It has also taken Ryan Cavalieri to four straight R.O.A.R National Championships in Modified Buggy. That is a pretty impressive vehicle driven by great drivers. Read on »»
