The weather for this weekend looks too cold to race so we will not be racing. If warm weather returns any time soon, we'll try to hold a makeup race which will be announced here and on Facebook.

There is still off-road racing at the Warehouse Raceway in Helena, AL and at Thunder R/C in Nashville, TN so make sure to support the indoor tracks that let us race all year.

September 7th Race Results

posted Sep 7, 2014, 10:49 PM by Steven Hicox   [ updated Sep 7, 2014, 10:53 PM ]

We had another great day of off-road racing at RC3 with 52 entries in 7 classes. The sun was out, the temperatures were in the 80's and there was a cool breeze most of the day. After the first round of qualifying, the track started holding moisture which allowed for much better traction and some really close racing.

David Burt served up great food throughout the day. Shea Caughron, Jody Schrimsher, John Aslan, Bruce Charles, Jay Kurowsky, and others all helped keep thing running smoothly with track maintenance, race announcing, and setup/breakdown help. Thanks to everyone that helped out today.

The race results have been posted in the results area of the website. Due to a software glitch in the scoring system, the results for the B main of 1/8th scale buggy are not available, and the results shown for the B-main should be combined with the A-Main results.

September 6th Race Rescheduled

posted Sep 5, 2014, 4:50 PM by Steven Hicox   [ updated Sep 5, 2014, 4:50 PM ]

It's official, we are going to move tomorrow's race to Sunday the 7th. According to most forecasts, Saturday will have some significant rain. There is a good chance that the track will be too wet to race at all this weekend, but we won't know for sure until Sunday morning. If it is too wet come Sunday, I'll post something on Facebook and here as early as I can.

August 30th Makeup Race Cancelled

posted Aug 29, 2014, 5:39 AM by Steven Hicox   [ updated Aug 29, 2014, 5:39 AM ]

The weather forecast for tomorrow's race shows 60% with up to 1" of rain. I don't want a repeat of the last race, so I am going to go ahead and cancel this race. Luckily there is another race scheduled for next Saturday the 6th. Wildflower is racing this Sunday I think, so if the weather up there is better maybe you guys can still get some racing in this weekend. See you all next Saturday!
