Saw Ronda yesterday at Revo. Let me just say, respectfully so, that she is even better looking in person. I wanted to say hi but I didn’t want to seem like a geek or freak her out. Most guys there acted like no big deal so I just went along.....she did run my little CRT.5 over though( coming out of the whoops).

The girl can drive, let me tell you that much. You can definitely tell why she's a pro when she's on the track.

I look forward to seeing you at practice again. Next time I'll say hi and maybe ask you to take a picture with me.

INTRODUCTION: Ronda Skelton
Category: Blogging


My name is Ronda Skelton. Well the calendar says I'm 30, I feel like 20, just with 10 years of experience. I guess I'm pretty normal…if you could say anyone is normal I enjoy hanging with my friends and family…. meeting new people… I have a bunch of hobbies like, R/C cars, Bowling, and shopping. As any girly-girl does. I listen to almost any kind of music. I work for a company called Volume Snacks as a merchandiser. I was born in Texas. My favorite color is PINK. Beware; I am a Scorpio….lol



I have been racing in a male-dominated hobby known as: Remote Control cars since I was a very young girl. As you may know, I am one of the few female racers in R/C industry. I was not the first female racer to be sponsored by a major race team however; I was the first to be promoted on such a large national scale. I have become a fixture on the West Coast racing scene during my 18 years as an RC enthusiast. I attend almost all of the country's major off-road racing events. I have a long list of companies who support me with my hobby. Pro-Line, Mugen Seiki, Airtronics, Byron Fuels, Rock Concepts, Upgrade, AVID Bearings,
Pyrographix, and B-MODS.

I've have lived in CA. for the past twenty-five years and have no plans of leaving. I love the sunny California weather, beaches, mountains and the awesome racing. I'm very fortunate to have so many great tracks to choose from and the level of competition is unmatched. It's very common to have 100 plus racers on Saturday night at Revelation Raceway. Many of the nation's top racers battle it out there on a weekly basis. It helps keep me sharp and excided about racing.

I am just simple gal that loves racing of any kind!

Hey Rhonda before your setup helped me alot and Im hoping you would lend a hand again. Could you pm me or post a recommended set up for my 5r and 5t. Here is my track info...

Outdoor track in the midwest with a clay surface. Usually is a dry slick(hard packed) with somewhat of a scaled surface(but not bad), will blue up if there is enough of a turnout but usually stays dry slick and dusty.

If you could help again I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

Hi Rhonda...

Rob B from Nitrohouse...

Been missing you at Rev lately, but I understand why...Good luck at the Nats. Show them boys what you fast girls can do...

I'll be in Florida visiting my kids, and taking a much needed vacation the same week as the Nats, so I won't be there.

Oh yeah, be nice to Barry...NOT...lol

Have Fun...Burn Nitro...

I believe she runs for Mugen, not CEN. unless it's changed?
