On the downside if they get no sponsors they won't be attending. So if you know some industry insiders please let them know.

- The top sponsor gets a watermark in lower third shown over video full run
- Sponsors also get pre and post roll logos
- 3 second post roll product splash image

Here is last years Pro A main vid:

PM me for info

Was a great race last year (Except the rainy day) and the Pro Buggy was the best main I've ever watched. I watched your video a bunch, (Great job!) and your video settled the controversy about the "bump" with 2 lap to go. This race is the coolest race I've been too, just watch out for the racing planes across the road. Saw one loose control last year, and hit the ground at 200mph and threw bebris over a 100' feet

Ya I'm super bummed about not getting to race this year, and now probably wont even get to go film it. I'm sure someone will make a Youtube vid, you know how much we love those handy cam's and cell phone vids. O'well.

Ohhh, and the airplane pylon racing is really crazy! I tried to film it, but you cant because they change directions to quick to keep focused. LOL!

I wish everyone luck at the race and safe traveling!

i think its because this race isnt going to be half the race it used to be this year. The reason, MOTORAMA. Of the pros i race with, half are going to nitro challenge, the other half are going to motorama.

Im not going to either, even though i live in vegas. Cant afford the time off work.

What pros are you talking about. You can look at the drivers list for motorama, how many names do you know lol. This is the 10th Nitro Challenge over 400 racers and all the big names from this country and over seas. Cant wait going to set up NOW!!!

I dont know what the prizes are at Nitro Challenge but Motorama is just for trophies.

Motorama is a lot more than just a RC race. At the same time there is also motocross, carts, battle robots, and 2 cars shows (one with a bikini contest). Its a good way to introduce RC products to people that may otherwise never be exposed to them and that is why some manufacturers like Traxxas, Odonnell and AKA will be represented.

Last year Traxxas reported many people trying to buy their demos right off their display table.

From what I've heard the NC will be running along side the largest RC Jet Airshow in the country, a Ford/Mustang drag race, a motocross race, and a bmx race. Speedworld is where The Nitro Pit is located, much more than just an RC track, should be a fun weekend

2 incredible events in one weekend on different sides of the country. Its great to see RC racing gaining momentum even during this crappy economy.
