HÃ©bert Crowned ROAR 1:12 Modified Carpet National Champ
The ROAR Carpet On-Road Nationals was held at Mike’s Hobby Shop just outside of Dallas, Texas in the suburb of Carrollton. Team Associated was well represented at the event with Keven HÃ©bert, Mike Blackstock, Rick Hohwart, Sean Cochran and others all in attendance. In the 1:12 Modified class, Keven HÃ©bert and his 12R5.1 powered by Reedy and LRP laid down the fastest qualifier of the weekend in the final round to start on pole for the triple leg A finals. However, the French Canadian wouldn’t need three legs to claim his first Modified National Championship. Rocketing from the pole position, HÃ©bert left the field in A1 and never looked back, taking the victory ahead of team mate Mike Blackstock. In the second leg, HÃ©bert again got a great start however, a bobble dropped him back to fifth place at one point. Staying focused and showing the determination of a champion, HÃ©bert found his way back to the lead and distanced himself from the field.
Congratulations to Keven HÃ©bert on his first ROAR Modified National Championship and also to Northwest Team Associated/Reedy/LRP driver Kody Knudtson on his top qualifying effort in 17.5T Touring Non-Timing.
