It takes incredible driving talent, the right adjustments, and top-shelf equipment to capture any national title, let alone four - especially in the same day. Ryan Cavalieri figured out the tricky track conditions of SRS Raceway better than anybody, and simply outpaced all challengers in qualifying and the A-Mains to add four more ROAR national wins to his credit. While it’s hard to put into pictures (or words) just how well Cavalieri drives, we can show you an in-depth look into his championship vehicles from SRS Raceway in Phoenix.

He ran hard front arms, the standard (hard) B5M rear arms, Factory Team steering set, aluminum C and D blocks, aluminum rear hubs and aluminum rear ball stud mount. The wing buttons are from AVID.
