Aaron Hess hooked up all weekend at ROAR Fuel Off-Road Nats on Blockades and Lockdowns


This year I attended the 2014 ROAR Fuel Off-Road Nationals at Thornhill Racing Circuit in Hutto, Texas. The crew at TRC worked very hard in preparation for this event on the largest track we have ever been on.


I used this day to just learn the track and didn’t worry about set-up too much, knowing that the track would change a lot over the next four days.


Thursday was seeding practice and my cars felt great. The groove was starting to form but it was still slick. For seeding, they took your best 3 consecutive laps in order to decide what heats you will be in for qualifying.

We were battling tuning /mileage on our cars along with many others on this huge track. On my D8T I ran Blockades in X2 and X3 compounds. On the D812 we ran LockDowns in X2 and X3 compounds.

Pro-Line had us hooked up all week with awesome traction on very challenging track conditions.

Overall, I was very happy with how my weekend went. In both classes I accomplished my goal of finishing higher than I did last year.


I would like to thank whole Thornhill crew for the countless hours of hard work on the track.

I would also like to thank my sponsors, Daniel Adams and Pro-Line for supporting me and equipping me with the best products on the market!
