US Team Durango super-racer Ryan Lutz has concluded an action-packed weekend of high profile nitro racing with a double third overall at the 2014 ROAR National in Austin, Texas.

Ryan was very happy to convert his fast paced day one performance, in timed practice, to a podium spot for the DNX8 prototype 1/8 Nitro Buggy, against arguably the fastest racers the class has to offer.

With Ryan actively testing the upcoming Team Durango platform over the last few months, with a solid performance in the UK at the Neo race, the US Pro driver was happy to test the pace of his prototype against a star-studded field.


With the Texas heat and humidity giving the racers more than the dusty track to contend with, Ryan was able to fly to an overall third place podium finish in the increasingly competitive 1/8 Nitro Truggy class. Ryan piloted his DNX408T through the field, stating that his Truggy felt ‘safe and easy to drive’ throughout the competition.


We send our sincere congratulations  and thanks to Ryan for a great performance. The race-pace testing of the DNX8 prototype continues to keep us focused on creating an awesome new product.

We also send thanks and admiration to Team Durango Pro racer Travis Amezcua, who not only pitted for Ryan during the ROAR Nats event, but as Ryan stated during press interviews, was fundamental in helping Ryan stay sharp and focused during the hectic three day race schedule.

Thanks must go to our friends at REDRC for their wonderful event coverage and photographs.
