The 2014 ROAR Region 2 Off-Road Championships series has come to a conclusion. After five rounds of racing at different tracks through out the Mid-Atlantic region, an awards banquet was held to recognize the top racers through the competition on Saturday October 11th in Washington D.C. This was the first annual banquet for the off-road series which has been in existence for several years. As the participation increased at the events through out the years, it was time to take the final awards presentation outside of the events and have it’s own dedicated time where racers and their families could enjoy dinner, refreshments, conversations with friends and donated raffle items from the series sponsors.
Eleven year old, Ethan Mackanick, from Shippensburg, PA represented Pro-Line Racing with his 7th place over all finish in the 1:8 Electric Buggy division. The 1:8 E-Buggy class was the largest class in the series with ninety-two racers represented from Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Delaware, New Jersey, Virginia, South Carolina, Ohio, and North Carolina. The series opener RC Pro in Hayes, VA had one hundred and thirty-six entries with the season final at Trains and Lanes Hobbies in Easton, PA coming out to ninety-eight entries. Pro-Line teammates, Anthony Mazzarra and Brian Miskolczi, were also among the top finishers in the Electric and Nitro powered Buggy and Truggy classes.
Ethan ran a Mugen MBX-6 Eco Buggy equipped with the Pro-Line BullDog body, Trifecta Wing and primarily M3 and X3 compounds of Hole Shots, Blockades, and LockDowns through the five race events of the series. His tires maintained the best bond to the wheels while using the Pro-Line Racing Pro-Bond Tire Glue over several months of racing between the series and other events attended during the non-series weekends.
Thank you to the Pro-Line team for continuing to provide the highest quality products and support for competition racing.
