Well darn, at least it will be fun to go watch and hopefully generate some attention to r/c in rockford.

the only promoting for r/c will be from the manufactures. not from any local source. i would hope that hobbytown would do something, but i bet the odds of winning the lottery are much better. maybe some short distance tracks will be there with some small(or large) booths to promote their tracks. i plan on being there during the days for sure, i have to work at night. i am sure that the local paper will get involved, and if they don't... i will personally volunteer to bring it to their attention.

Carlton has stated that most if not all the major manufactures will have booths set up and it will be both a race and a trade show. He is in the process of contacting local TV, news papers, and radio stations to cover the event. I think this will be one of the best races to date!
