Race Report by Alexander Hagberg
The 2019 edition of the ROAR Carpet Nationals was held at the permanent facility of Prolevel RC, at the Chesterfield Mall, near St. Louis, Missouri. A decent turnout of drivers were ready to race it out in all classes. The RC America team was looking stronger than ever, with a big and very focused team present.

Open practice started on the Wednesday, and the open track really allowed for us to get a lot of useful track time. As the track started to groove up, we also fine tuned our setups for the track layout. I was personally present at this race only for team support, but I was also able to run a little on the open practice day, which helped us gather some important setup information.

The Formula 1 class saw John Barron from Nashville win the national title with his XRAY X1! Congatulations John!

In qualifying, both Robbie Dodge and Brandon Clements showed great pace in the TC Super Stock Class. Eventually, Brandon ended up 2nd on the grid, with Robbie in 3rd. Drew Ellis also had a strong running, putting his car 5th on the grid. This made it 3x T4'19 cars in the top 5! A very good result in this competitive class. In the finals, our guys managed to close the gap to the top, but had to settle for the 2nd and 3rd podium spots! Drew Ellis finished 6th!
