Modified Touring Car
In the premier Modified Touring Car class, Cavalieri went onto dominate qualifying with his Muchmore powered Team Associated TC7.1 by TQ'ing 3 of the 4 rounds to take the overall TQ honors!
In A-Main #1, Cavalieri drove flawless by leading every lap and taking the Win by over 5-seconds!
A-Main #2 would be more difficult as changing track conditions made racing extremely tough. Cavalieri remained calm while having great battles with teammates Rick Hohwart and Kevin Hebert throughout the intense 6-minute A-Main. As the checkered flag waived, it was Cavalieri just edging out Hebert to take the Win and the 2018 ROAR Modified Touring Car National Championship!
