A weekend at the races with video.

RC car racing is a little known sport. While it may seem like mostly grown men and a few women playing with toy cars, it is much more than that. First, the cars are not cheap. Entry level cars that are competitive will run around $500 for an electric. That includes the transmitter (or the radio... Sign in to see full entry.

Supercross crowns its champions

The most exciting race of the season came at the culminating race of the season, just like it would be scripted in Hollywood. While the Supercross class race had its share of moments and did indeed determine the 2009 champion, it was the Lites class East/West showdown that put on the best show hands...

Tales of the races

Scale model cars, full scale fun. That’s Radio Control car racing in a nutshell. It was my first event in a “real” class against “real” drivers and in typical fashion, I took a solid last in all three races. Finally, however, I feel more in control of the car and I am far less nervous than last... Sign in to see full entry.

A race weekend is coming up

My race truck is almost ready, I am soaking the front wheel bearings in a thimble full of WD-40 as I am writing this. I’ll admit, radio control racing has some unique aspects, but in the end it is racing and the machine has to be ready. My 10 th scale modified electric truck will see it’s second...

Fans get a thrill in Jacksonville

Stewart versus Reed played out like a prime time sports spectacular. They were shown talking to each other, eyeballing each other on the track and other made-for-media moments. Sure, they are the two top contenders for the points championship in this year’s round of Supercross and I’m also sure they... Sign in to see full entry.

So many races, so little time.

First, why not just give the Tar Heels the trophy right now and save a lot of people the time and agony of watching yet another team get stomped into the parquet? Baseball season is going to start, break out the No-Doz, endless scratching, spitting and steroid injecting is about to begin. In... Sign in to see full entry.

Saint Louis SX report

Brother, you ain’t seen nothing yet, might have been the theme of the track at Saint Louis. Designed by professional nut case and sometime motocross rider, Travis Pastrana this track had obstacles never seen before. I will spare descriptions, only the hard-core motocross crowd can comprehend what a... Sign in to see full entry.

What kind of madness?

Like Homer Simpson had for his wife the day they got married? You know, Marge madness! First, I am not a big stick and ball sports fan and when I am, I am a fair weather fan. Right now the weather is so-so. The University of Washington Huskies are out of the NCAA “big dance” or whatever the second... Sign in to see full entry.

Indianapolis, Daytona Supercross both thrillers

The showdown between James Stewart and Chad Reed continues with some of the closest racing between the two top contenders we have seen yet. In Indiana, Stewart and Reed had a duel going in the heat race, it was close, then James got an edge and pulled away, it seemed like it was going to be the same... Sign in to see full entry.

Atlanta Supercross a monster

The main competition in Atlanta was the track featuring the red Georgia soil and two very deep sandy spots. James Stewart and Chad Reed both won their heat races so as they lined up next to each other on the starting gate, the stage seemed set. They had both taken the hole shot in their heats and...
