Held during the same weekend as the Touring Car National championships, the 1/12 scale class at the ROAR On-Road Paved Nationals proved that 1/12th is making a big comeback in the United States.
Driving a 1/12 car with his Hot Bodies conversion kit on it, Atsushi was able to qualify third in a hotly contested class that included former and current National Champions such as Josh Cyrul and Mike Blackstock. Slight handling problems in qualifying prevented Atsushi from qualifying higher.
Atsushi proved that it??s possible to win from anywhere as he took the first win in the triple A main final format. Second-place wins in the remaining finals solidified another overall win and his second ROAR National Championship Title of the weekend!
