Paul Wynn, JR Mitch and JConcepts win big at the 2009 “ROAR” Region 4 Off-road Championships.
This past weekend the ROAR Region 4 Off-road Championships was hosted by the Coral Springs R/C Car Club. CSRCCC is home to one of the finest tracks/clubs in the State of Florida and once again did not disappoint.
CSRCCC surface is one to write home about and Paul Wynn took full advantage with his JConcepts equipped Factory Team B4 & T4. Qualifying in the 2nd position in the highly competitive 2wd Mod class, Paul quickly took the lead on the first lap from JC teammate Ryan Eckert. The race battle continued for the entire 6 minutes between Paul and Ryan, but in the end it was Paul taking the win followed by Ryan.
Straight off the 2wd mod win Paul set his sights on Mod Truck. Paul quickly took the lead on the 2nd lap from his 3rd qualifying position, and once again had a great battle early on with another teammate JR Mitch. With JR having an electrical problem, Paul would cruise to another victory followed closely by teammate Zach Genova.
Multi-time Region 4 champion JR Mitch was looking to add a new title to his list of accomplishments, Short Course Modified. Utilizing his JConcepts equipped SC10, JR set a blistering pace in the A-main and looked to take control early. A close battle emerged throughout the A-main but JR put on the “jets” and cruised to yet another Region 4 Championship.
For the 2009 Regionals an 1/8th E-buggy demonstration class was offered. JR Mitch, an avid 1/8th buggy driver, took his nitro skills to the test and ran for the first time his RC8e buggy. JR was quick to mount up the brand new 1/8th buggy Bar Codes as the track began to “groove-up”. During the A-main it was clear JR was the buggy to watch as wheelies where just apart of the ride while JR walked away from the field in one of the most impressive single performances of the day.
