On Saturday, Team Orion sent out a press release stating that current IFMAR 1/8 Nitro Buggy World Champion Cody King, current ROAR 1/10 Modified Truck, 1/8 Buggy & Truggy National Champion Jared Tebo, along with current ROAR 1/10 4wd Modified Buggy National Champion Ryan Cavalieri will once again join forces under the Team Orion name. All three of these guys are amazing drivers who have reached the world championship milestone and are looking to keep that pace up.
These guys are know as the “Big 3″ for Orion and that has to be exciting that the are sticking around. Cody King has been on a hot streak as of late winning the highly contested JBRL Nitro Series in both Buggy and Truggy, followed by winning the Sidewinder Nitro Explosion, and then on to winning the 2010 IFMAR 1/8 World Championship in Pattaya, Thailand just a few short months ago. This gave Team Orion their first ever World Championship in the nitro class. Jared Tebo has racked up countless wins for Team Orion over the past 2 years. None more gratifying than being the first driver in ROAR history to sweep both the 1/8 Buggy and 1/8 Truggy National Championships in the same year. And Cavalieri has been a model of consistency for Team Orion over the past 5 years. Cavalieri and Team Orion have won a staggering 10 ROAR 1/10 Electric Off-Road National Championships together.
These guys are good and I’m sure there is only more to come. Keep an eye on them this year!
