There was an episode of MTV cribs with some young rapper on there and he pulled out a duffle bag and had a Nitro 4-Tec or HPI Nitro car in there and said this is what he really races. We also had Bears and Bulls players stop in and buy planes, helicopters, boats and just about anything else. There are celebrities out there that are into this but none really that get any air play about it.

Maybe Chappelle will do something to bring some sort of exposure to RC car racing.
R Kelly was probably only there looking for young girls hangin' around the shop with their moms.

Back in the day Tony stopped by Racers Haven in Bakersfield just to check out the paved oval racing, I think he is buddies with Gary Hamilton...I have also met Rick Mears at the same shop picking up parts for his RC plane and John Force stopped by one time just to check out the track. Man those were the days.

I have heard Bobby LaBonte is big into RC racing.
There was Kevin Harvick special where he was playing with his RC trucks a few years back.
