Hébert Crowned ROAR 1:12 Modified Carpet National ChampionMarch 22, 2012
Event Name: ROAR Carpet On Road Nationals
Event Location: Mikes Hobby Shop - Carrollton, TX
Event Date(s): March 17, 2012 to March 18, 2012
The ROAR Carpet On Road Nationals was held at Mike's Hobby Shop just outside of Dallas, TX in the suburb of Carrollton. Team Associated was well represented at the event with Keven Hébert, Mike Blackstock, Rick Hohwart, Sean Cochran and others all in attendance.
In the 1:12 Modified class, Keven Hébert 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 A-main events. However, the French Canadian wouldn't need three main events to claim his first Modified National Championship.
Rocketing from the pole position, Hébert left the field in A1 and never looked back, taking the victory ahead of teammate Mike Blackstock. In the second A Main, Hébert 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, Hébert found his way back to the lead and distanced himself from the field.
Congratulations to Keven Hébert on his first ROAR Modified National Championship and also to Northwest Team Associated/Reedy/LRP driver Kody Knudtson on his top-qualifying effort in 17.5 Touring Non-Timing.
