If there was ever an all-star team of drivers, Team Orion has the biggest names in the game. With the ability to cherry pick the best drivers from all the different chassis manufacturers, Team Orion has gathered multiple national and world champions that consists of Phend, Maifield, Cavalieri, Tessman, Evans, and Tebo. Undoubtedly, Team Orion will be hard to beat at this year’s nationals. But, what is it like to be a part of this elite team? Find out more as I join Team Orion for this year’s 2015 ROAR Nationals!
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. Finally, all the countless hours of preparation and practice is finally starting to see an end goal as the racers have just wrapped up 2 rounds of seeding on this blistering hot 110 degree Thursday.
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.
Fastest seeding times –
17.5 Stock SC – Alexander Krieg
17.5 Stock Truck – Alan Wight
17.5 Stock 2wd – Tanner Day
Mod SC – Ryan Cavalieri
Mod Truck – Ryan Cavalieri
Mod 4wd – Ryan Cavalieri
Mod 2wd – Spencer Rivkin
