Everyone... come out to Bremerton for Round #2 of the Showdown. We are doing 3 rounds of qualifying with 2 out of 3 Qual points and Double A mains. Jim Dunlap ran a great show at Portland for Round 1 and will be the RD for the next round at Bremerton. The vibe in the pits at the first race was awesome. Everyone had a great time and the season is off to a good start!

Default Round 2!!!

I hope you guys are ready for this race!!! It's going to be awesome. I think most of the traveling Portland crew will be there to battle in Bremerton.

I'm really excited to attend this race as well as doing the race coverage. Round 1 was awesome and had a great time and very stoked to promote racers and racing in the NW with the Pacific NW Showdown Series.

Here is Round 1 WITH VIDEO!!! Stock and Mod Buggy A1 and A2.

Default New Track

The new track is in.. Its going to be a great showdown track..
The track will be open to run on by 2pm Monday.. just a little bit of packing and than some painting still to do......

Only 6 days till round 2 of the best r/c race series in the NW...

Sounds like we are going to have the biggest turnout of local BRCR racers coming out to run this year.

We are known as a great beginner and low stress track for the average racer.
So sometimes are local racers are a little intimidated by the big race. But this year we are going to have a very good local turnout..

Cant wait..

Track seclude and track fees for this week
2hr's of free practice is included in your club race fee. So if racing starts at 6pm race practice starts at 4pm.. If you run before that you have a track charge along with your race entry. If you race that night you practice fee is $5.00 if you don't race that night your practice fee is $10.00

Monday racing starts at 6pm $5.00 to practice $5.00 per class
Tuesday open at noon till 8pm $10.00 to practice
Wednesday open at noon racing starts at 7pm $5.00 to practice $10.00 per class
Thursday open at noon till 8pm $10.00 to practice
Friday track opens at noon till 9pm $10.00 to practice
