Looks like the man to beat in Nitro is Keith Yu. He's been untouched at our club races since he's been running the new Serpent 705.

Should be a good turnout. Just a reminder to register early to avoid the $5.00 late registration fee. Deadline is Sept. 10.

See ya at the races.

Yeah, thanks to all who came out! The parking lot was packed! And we saw some awesome races!

The thanks also goes to Ramil and Jesse of OVERGEARED Hobbies for coming out with such a great event!

Maybe next year we will have that free hotdog and pop that we had in the TCS regionals! And maybe a trophy girl or two...eh Ramil !?

Hey guys, I had a great time. Especially racing nitro touring. Man, foam is a blast.

Thanks for organizing this race. The Sat race is the longest I've ever done in one day. It's a record. Too bad there isn't enough lighting, otherwise we can do some night racing too.
