Thanks for allowing me to represent Boca Bearings.

This past weekend, I traveled to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to attend the 1st Annual Palmetto Classic Race at Beach RC Hobbies. 

The event drew 179 entries and I competed in the 2wd and 4wd Short Course Truck Divisions. The race featured 4 heats and double A mains which was a lot of fun. I was able to reach the podium in the 4wd SCT division, where I took 3rd overall.

I would like to thank Boca Bearings, Pro-Line Racing, Viper R/C Solutions, Bullit Performance R/C Hobby shop in Raleigh, NC and Sire Screen Printing for all their support and excellent products!

The weather was not on our side here on the East Coast, but I was able to race at South Jersey RC Raceway trophy race.

We had a little over 90 entries this weekend with Ebuggy being the biggest class. My Tekno buggy was getting better each round with a few setup changes that allowed me to start in the 5th spot going into the A-main. In the A-main i didn't get the best start getting pushed into the pipes and putting me into 7th place from there I  put my head down and did some really clean fast laps where I would take 4th place finish. This was the closest and cleanest race I have seen an a long time.

Tekno buggy paired with Raiopost red servo along with Tekin Gen2 rx8 and gen2 T8 1900v motor. Panther Rattlers worked all day long with the help of FTM Grip Traction compound and Boca Bearings.

Couldn’t make it around the track with all the great support.

March 29th is the start of my outdoor season. Hopefully the weather is on our side this week.

Central Alabama Helicopter Fly-In -- March 20th-22nd, 2015.

We had 94 registered pilots at the event. First time in past 12 years that we have had less than 100 pilots. Normally we are in the 120-150 range.

Weather forecast the week before the event was gloomy looking. So I am sure that kept some pilots from coming.  But for the event, the weather turned out to be fair.

Pilots started arriving on Wednesday before the event started on Friday. 

Wednesday and Thursday weather was great with temps in the high 70’s.

Friday temps were in the high 60’s low 70’s and it drizzled rain for about 90 mins between 12 noon and 3PM.  Sun came out a little after 3 on Friday and was out for couple hours. Light mist of rain for an hour or so. There was night flying on Friday night.

Saturday was a good day weather wise. Overcast but no rain.   Started raining late Saturday evening around 6PM. So all the RV campers packed up and headed home. Rained thru the night Saturday and into Sunday most of the day. So the event ended on Saturday.

Thanks again for the support of Boca Bearings. The pilot that got the multi-tool in the pilot door prize drawing was thrilled. Said he had never seen one like that. Also the gift certificates were appreciated, will probably be seeing them this week as the pilots that got them order bearings.
  
Thanks Again

We will do it again next year. March 18th-20th 2016.

VALKARIA RC -- WCM ICE BREAKER WINTER NATIONALS

First and most importantly we thank ALL our sponsors for supporting this Race, and most of ALL our hobby. Without them we would not be able to race or enjoy the sport we all participate in.

So let me first thank Mark Hogue, from WCM for all he does to support the Quarter Scale Industry, and Race events across the country. WCM was the headline sponsor of the Ice Breaker Winter Nationals, WCM donated cash and prizes well over $1,000.

Next, a BIG SHOUT OUT goes to Lou Cicconi, for his generous donation to the event, for some of the added incentives to the racers.

Thank you Lou for being a part of what we enjoy doing most, Racing model cars.

Thank you QSAC for providing us with a set of rules to help guide us while we grow and race our cars. The rules QSAC provides, and has been providing for the last 20 plus years has withstood the test of time, which in turn helped shape our sport.

Thank you Boca Bearings for you donation, support, and for supplying the RC industry with Great Bearings.

Last but not least, THANK YOU TO ALL that came, and supported the return of the Ice Breaker Winter Nations.

Now on to Speed week in the Sunshine State!!!!

The BIG winner this week was Mother Nature!!!!

We all know it is not nice to fool Mother Nature!!!

With the BAD weather through out the entire country, Florida was no exception!!

The weather was in the mid 70's to mid 80's till Speed week, when the temps dropped down to the mid 40's at night, and 60's during the day.

It seemed like we were dodging rain all week!!! Every time we got the track clear, and started running the sky would open up again!!! NOT GOOD!!!

The Track Crew worked Hard ALL week getting the track ready, for racing, and keeping it as dry as possible, which was a never ending task!!!

Thank you goes out to the entire Pepe Family, Doug, and Tom Catron, and everyone else who provided help throughout the week.

We were able to get in plenty of practice, but it would have been nice to have had more, and some sun!!!

Thursday, and Friday were 20% chance of rain for both days with no rain on the radar, Yeah right!!!! Weatherman is the only profession in the world where you can be wrong 90% of the time, and not lose your job.

Saturday showed 70-80% chance of rain, and yet everyone stayed to tough it out, and see if we could get the race in.

We were able to get the Sportsman heat race in with Randy Delapp winning it. the Limited Sportsman race was down to the last 10 laps, when the sky opened up for the last time, and ended any chance of getting the track dry, or completing the race day.

Marty Freedle won the concourse award for ECM, and Jerry Evans won it for Sportsman.

For anyone wanting to see more photos of the week please check out Facebook.
