Default Shortcourse Showdown Nationwide Tour - Omaha, NE

Scotty Ernst's Shortcourse Showdown Nationwide Tour will be making it's final stop of 2013 at the famous HobbyTown USA Hobbyplex in Omaha, NE October 25-27th.



Scotty writes, "The last stop of this years tour will be held at the HobbyPlex raceway in Omaha, NE. We added the Plex to the tour last year and we had a great time there, so when we looked at doing this years schedule we thought to have the finals there as they have a huge venue, plenty of room to host our manufacturers row of sponsors and a great core of new racers will make for a great place to wrap of the tour."

Racers can expect a fun track layout, plenty of pit space, lots of manufacturer and pro driver support and a great crowd on hand to watch the action. Scotty also delivers the most door prize giveaways of any race I've ever attended for both racers and spectators.

We've also made some significant changes to the facility since last year.

Here's some youtube vids from last year's race and some of this year's action:

There's a decent number signed up already and I expect this race to fill up well before October so don't wait till the last minute.

Does anyone have a 1/10 esc that I could borrow for the showdown? Needs to be sensored and able to run an 8.5t motor. Any esc that works is fine. I am borrowing and 2wd to run a second class to pass some time is all so don't want to buy one. Thanks

Are entries limited? (I'm not sure if I can make it, don't want to pre-register.)

entries are technically limited, but we're about a hundred away from the limit, so you'll be good I think.
