Default This day in RC history. 12/16/2007. A SoCal story.

Ten years ago today in Huntington Beach, CA some of us raced are last race at So Cal R/C Raceway.

(This banner hung on the off-road track. Some of you may have had your Super Cross pictures taken in front of it.)


Super Cross 2006-Ryan Cavalieri

Many current and former Pros came out of this track. Some former racers went on to open there own tracks after SoCal closed. Regardless of how we moved on with life most, if not all of us, miss our beloved So Cal. After the closing I got to take home some of the place I called a second home. A place and group of people that practically raised me and banded together to get me my first race truck with everything to run it the right way. I still have the tag from that X-Mas around 1996 when So Cal was still in Garden Grove.




A place where we learned the rules of the road.


And we where ok with spending chore money on track time in the hope we could get good enough to not have to spend it on parts.


Maybe even get pick up by a team.


The smell of hot motors, parts cleaner, traction compound and, Jack in a Box fulled the air.


And if you where luckly, you may even win a Turkey with a full pull.


We even had the shirts to let others know where we ran.


So join me here in the fun times we had.


Share your memories with us and never forget those that helped you get where you are today. And our last night together.

Some of my Pics from SoCals days.
















(One of the first pics of my Stampede. With my novice trophies on the wall behind. One I got with MT's old gold pan RC10.)

As I find more I will post them. Find yours and share with us.
