Default 2015 Stock Wars @ MRH presented by Motiv RC



Middle River Hobbies (MRH) is proud to announce the 2015 Stock Wars presented by Motiv RC, directed and announced by Scotty Ernst! Stock Wars will offer racers around the U.S. the opportunity to compete against some of the best racers from Mod, 13.5 and 17.5 Touring and 1/12 classes together in 17.5. In the absence of IIC, this will likely be a 1-time event for this year only, so don't miss your opportunity to race 17.5 TC with guys like Paul LeMieux, Drew Ellis, Larry Fairtrace, Josh Cyrul, etc! ROAR rules will apply for TC & 1/12. UF1 rules will apply for F1. USGT will follow standard USGT class rules. Qualifying format will be 4 rounds of Rocket Round style qualifying. SXT 3.0 is the only approved traction additive. Each racer will receive 1 FREE bottle of SXT 3.0 at check-in! All LiPo batteries must be charged in a LiPo sack. Personal Transponders are encouraged, though house transponders are available. Spec tire for TC will be the Gravity RC Type C, which will be available for $25 per set (limit 2). Spec tire for USGT will be the Gravity RC GT premounts, also available at $25 per set. TC and USGT tires must be purchased at the event. Links for Gravity RC tires follow:

Gravity RC G-Spec "Type C" Touring Tires on White GT Wheels

Gravity RC USGT Pre-Glued Tires on Black GT Wheels

Did we mention that Scotty Ernst will be in house for timing/scoring and race announcing? While this certainly is no replacement for IIC, you can get some of that IIC feel at this event!

Schedule: (We will follow a schedule similar to that of MHIC, which has been proven year after year to be an excellent schedule)
Thursday, 22 October - Doors open at 10AM. Open Practice & Evening Club Race
Friday, 23 October - Doors open at 7AM. Controlled Practice by Class
Saturday, 24 October - Doors open at 7AM. Early open practice, 3 rounds of Qualifying starts at 9AM
Sunday, 25 October - Doors open at 7AM. Early open practice, Final round of Qualifying starts at 9AM, Mains start TBD

  • 17.5 1/12 Open - sponsored by McFACTORY Motorsports
  • F1 - sponsored by ProLevel RC

Pro vs. Open
Pro classes are offered and available to anyone. This is your chance to race with the best of the best of on-road carpet racers. The Open class is available for those who may not feel comfortable in that scenario, so for Open we will exclude any racer who has made a top 10 at any National level carpet race over the past 5 years. The races to determine this are: IIC, Snowbirds, ROAR Nationals, US Indoor Champs, MHIC & Halloween Classic.

Registration/Fees
Signups will go live via rcsignup.com at 12/Noon ET on Monday, 10 August. First class will cost $60, while each additional class will be $40. Classes may be added at the event. The Thursday Night Club race will be limited to 1 entry per driver, and will cost $10 to enter. All practice time the week of the event will be Free!

Cannot wait to see some big dogs go slow! Should be a good opportunity to rustle some jimmies or break some neck bones...

Food is also readily available.... and the extra pit space has a carpet, offroad track, so bring your carpet buggies for the down time.

Sadly it couldn't come together for Scotty.
Maryland and its Crab Cakes culture doesn't really compare to the Vegas Strip... but the racers in Maryland, and the MRH facility are pretty top notch..

Wow! What an amazing amount of interest so far; thank you to everyone for the support! Can't wait to see and race with everyone!

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank PROTOform Race Bodies and Wallace Motorsports for joining us as class sponsors for USGT and 1/12 Open respectively!

Here is a link to our event on Facebook! rcsignup.com will still be the place to officially enter Stock Wars.
