Default Dave Chappelle hooked on RC?

Dave Chappelle was out at our parking lot track a couple weekends ago watching for a bit. I wonder if we got him hooked? Can't wait to see if he shows up in a couple weeks with a car and is ready to race!

Anyone race with a celebrity (non-RC Celebrity)?

Ben Wallace comes out to race Nitro sedan and 1/8 onroad in the Richmond, Va area every now and then. I know will see a few ballers racing at 301 in MD.

Even if he was he would only get into it for 2 years be super dialed get a huge sponsorship then just leave for no apparent reason j/k it'd be neat to race against someone whose fame is derived outside of the R/C industry. I heard Tony Stewart stopped by the snowbirds and ran some laps... good luck with everything

Yes but if he had taken all the money he may have figured out Dayton isnt a real city and moved away. Then he wouldnt have been watching us race and may have never realized what he is missing.

Tony Stewart race oval or road course in RC?

He was there while you were at your tupperware party. He had his own comedy show on Comedy Central. He got a $50 million contract and walked away from it. His comedy is very un-PC and not family friendly. Which is why I suspect you may not know who he is.

Well if he is not family friendly then I would not know of him,

It was not the tupperware party. It was the Baby shower.

Well, he'll either 1) have a bunch of top-of-the-line stuff or 2) just make fun of it on his next show.








I hope not number 2
