JR Mitch goes to TLR/Orion
Sunday, Mar 4, 2012 10:03pm
In the epic soap opera that is the R/C car industry, few driver/sponsor relationships last more that a couple years. However, the partnership between JR Mitch and Team Associated/Reedy defied the odds and has been going on nearly two decades, seriously rivaling the lifespan of a Twinkie®. In what is very surprising change of events, JR has made the move to TLR and Team Orion. He will remain with JConcepts for tires and bodies.
In one of his first races with his new rides, JR looked right at home by taking the TQ and win in both 2WD Mod Buggy and Mod Truck. The race was Round 2 of the JConcepts Super Cup, held at New Red Hobbies.
Stay tuned to LiveRC.com and we will try to get some words with JR this week about his new rides! From all of us at LRC, we wish JR the best of luck on his new endeavours!
