The best drivers in the United States have all gathered here at SRS Raceway, home of the Cactus Classic, for the 2015 ROAR Off-Road Nationals.

With the first seeding ran earlier in the day, the track was able to hold its moisture and provided a fiercely fast track and with the most consistent grip. Slowly but surely as the day went on, the track was slowly losing its moisture that resulted in a much slower 2nd round of seeding. Here are the seeding results to set up the starting order for Friday’s qualifying rounds.
