Roar 2009 Offroad Nationals

Axial’s own Paul Coleman competed in last week’s 2009 Roar 2009 Offroad Nationals July 14th-19th in Joliet, IL.  Despite the flood-like weather during his stay, the track not only soaked up all the rain but it ended up having better traction!  Paul was able to get out to the track and do what he does best – mingle…oh, and race.

All in all, the track was nice, the company was great and the racing was top notch.
