Season coming to a close soon

posted Sep 13, 2018, 6:31 PM by RC3   [ updated Sep 13, 2018, 6:32 PM ]

Well the outdoor off-road season is starting to slow down.  Here at Rc3 we have a great season during the outdoor season!   However it is not over just yet.   We are scheduled to race September 15th,  October 20th, and then the season closer November 3rd.   November 3rd will be a bigger event,  we will be having the 1st ever money race for the Ebuggy class and also a grudge race (money on the line) for 1/8th nitro buggy.   Ebuggy will be $15 a entry with 100% payback for top 3 places with option of more payback depending on entries.  Nitro buggy will have $100 on the line for the winner as long as they beat Austin Hughs ( local fast racer that has won some big races at Rc3).  If Austin wins,  sorry no money.   

So as the season comes to a close,  mark some of these dates and come on out one more time to Rc3 for a fun day at the races!

Rocket City Challenge Huge success!

With over 180 entries from racers from over 7 states, this years 9th annual Rocket City challenge was a HUGE success! With a hot and humid forecast, we started open practice on Friday afternoon with many people pulling in.  Saturday we got started running the 6 minute qualifiers and with money on the line for TQ in each class, we saw some fast overall times being put down.  Since this was a two day event we ran into the night up to around 10:00pm then took a break so racers could rest and relax.  The next morning we got started again to finish up.  HOT was the key word.  Not only the weather with highs in the 90's but on the track as well.  Very close racing in all classes, especially 1/8 Nitro Buggy and 1/8 E Truggy.   We finished up around 3pm so racers could have time to drive home.  Rc3 would like to thank everyone that came to race or hang out this year.  Mark your calender's for next year, same weekend, for the 10th annual race!  Safe travels and hot racing!

Next Huge event: 9th Annual Rocket city challenge

Mark your calendars for August 3rd thru 5th!   This years Rocket city challenge will be bigger and better.   With over 200 entries last year,  the club has decided to make this year event a (2) two day event.  Qualifiers run on Saturday and some lower class mains including novice.  Then all other Mains will be run on Sunday.   How its going to work?   Saturday signups will dictate the event.  If over 150ish entries ,  two day event it will be.   If 150 or under, we will run a one day event.  FYI,  we are expecting a huge crowd with over 200 if everything goes to plan.  So come on out for one of the biggest club events in this area.  Going to be a fun time!

Rc3 finished up the year with a club banquet / race on Nov 4th.  Congrats to all the track point series winners and to all the winners of 2017.  We have had an incredible year at Rc3 offroad.  Record turnouts through the spring and summer and great racing.  Record turnout for the Rocket City challenge with 200 entries, wow.  We even raised money for hurricane relief just after the Houston flood.  We have NO more scheduled races for 2017 but keep an eye on the Facebook page just in case we get some great weather, might just throw one in.  Great improvements are scheduled for 2018,  new layout will be put in around 1st of March.   

Next event, will be the 2018 club meeting sometime in January.  Watch Facebook for details.  If you want to help with club duties or help with track, please try to attend.  Thank you again for 2017 and lets make 2018 great as well.
