The Concours d’Elegance (French for “concourse of elegance”) competition is a staple of every ROAR National event. On Sunday morning before the start of the finals, all drivers wishing to enter the contest clean up their vehicles and present them for the judges - and to be eligible, the body must have been used in a qualifying heat earlier in the weekend. Three judges survey the vehicles and choose finalists, then select two winners per category - and in the case of the Electric Off-Road Nationals, there are separate Buggy (2WD and 4WD) and Truck (Racing Truck and Short Course) awards.
Dozens of racers entered their sparkling clean bodies, with a wide array of paint jobs in all different colors.
ROAR tech inspector Steve McLaughlin and celebrity judge Scotty Ernst chose the following winners:
- Randy Pike
- Bryce Nyikes
- Joey Mills
- Tyler Pollack
Here are some of the vehicles their incredible paint jobs beat for the titles:
