The 2008 ROAR Region 4 NITRO Off-Road Championships were held at HURRICANE RC Club in Tampa Florida on August 16 – 17, 2008. With a total of 124 entries in 4 classes, Production Monster Truck, Truggy, Buggy and Gas Truck, we had 2 action pact days of racing. It rained most of the week before the race, so Saturday Qualifying started out on wet sticky clay, with no rain all weekend the track grooved up really nice for Sundays Mains. With the rain all week, practice was at a premium. Local Hotshoes include Ryan Eckert, JR Mitch, Jason Ruona and more. Starting with his base setup Billy didn’t change anything all weekend on his car, he swapped pipes around a bit to get the right power band for the track, and it must have paid off! Posting the most consistent laps all weekend and winning the main by over a lap, the SX8 is once again proving its reliability and speed on the track!
