Stomps Stock Nats
Salt Lake City’s Intermountain R/C Raceway was home to this year’s off-road Stock Nationals, where Mike Truhe put together his first ROAR national titles by winning the 2WD and 4WD classes (and TQ’ing two-wheel for good measure) with his Orion-powered Team Losi buggies. (Maybe “his” buggies isn’t quite accurate; Mike had to borrow a Double-X4!). The 4WD top qualifier, Cliff Nicholson, finished second to Truhe in both 2WD and 4WD, also with Orion power. You might think these guys had an unfair advantage, since Team Orion provided the handout motors for the event, but all the Stock Nats racers had access to Worlds-qualifier and Team Orion rep Joe Pillars, who was on hand to help all drivers with their Core stock motors.
Joe Pillars. His face is actually stuck like that.
