All of the 2019 ROAR Off-Road Nationals are in the books, and the 2019 National Champions have all been crowned. This year we have seen multi-time champions returning to the top step of the podium for yet another title on their resume, as well as first time National Champions from the next generation of R/C racers.
For many people their goal is to win a weekly club race at their local track, let alone a National Championship. The dedication, talent, skill, and competitive edge that each and every one of these drivers has displayed this year is truly nothing short of amazing. 754 different entries competed for a National Off-Road Championship title among the various classes in 2019, but only 7 of them reached that goal. I want to personally congratulate each and every 2019 ROAR Off-Road National Champion, as your name is etched among the elite in the R/C history books forever!
