PROTOform Sweeps the ROAR On-Road Fuel Nationals

The results are in and it’s official. PROTOform dominates the 2009 ROAR On-Road Fuel Nationals in Toledo, Ohio. Mugen’s own Mike Swauger takes the 1:8 crown using PROTOform’s P909 body.

PROTOform’s Paul Lemiuex takes top honors on the pole going into the main. His Stratus 3.1 body allowed him to be the fastest most consistent driver in qualifying and kept the qualifying streak alive with the top podium spot in the main.

Long time supporter of PROTOform and all-around fantastic guy Eli Ezrow showed his true colors in the Master’s class by matching Paul’s performance with¬†a TQ and win.

Out of the three A-mains  31 out of 38 drivers chose PROTOform and their body of choice. Passion and performance is what PROTOform is all about and the results speak volume to just that.

Congrats Mike, Paul and Eli!
