Casey has run a great program at NW Hobbies for a few years now, having built a solid base of racers and clean driving. This is a welcome change to the PDX area. Casey has a clear vision of where RC in the PDX area is going, and I for one am on board.

Casey is running a schedule of Wednesday offroad starting at 7:30 pm, so racers have enough time to get there after work. He runs a fast program too, so you won't be there all night.

Friday is fast guy practice, so the racers actually have a chance to practice and tune.

Saturdays will have Offroad racing starting at 10am and onroad racing every other Saturday at 5pm.

Sundays will be open practice for everyone.

Having Casey at the helm, has brought out a bunch of the old guard of PDX RC, and the crowds have been growing. Last race had 35 racers, not just entries! Knowing the program Casey runs, has even brought The Big RC out of retirement, and my son Aiden is back wanting to race again.

Looks like good times ahead for the Portland rc racing scene. Dust off your rigs and head on out to the new 503 RC Raceway!!!

 

 

 

 

We're Back!!!!

The Big RC  is back and will be more fun than ever. We are going local with our flavor and will be covering some of the local flavor of RC in the NW. Times are good right now in the NW when it comes to RC and we plan on helping keep it this way.

Let the fun times with friends keep on rolling!!!
