Our contributor Eric Schutt is on location in St. Louis, MO at the Dirtburners RC facility for the 2011 Futaba Nitro Challenge. Here is his first report:
2011 Futaba / OS Engines Nitro Challenge – Dirt Burners
July 15, 2011 Kirkwook, MO
Eric Schutt here on the scene on behalf of RC Car Action checking out the action at DirtBurners. Just got in Friday and here’s a quick check in.
First, the new layout has seen lots of laps already. This track is known for developing a healthy blue groove, and it’s already forming. The weather has been dry, and this weekend is slated to stay that way…but hot!
The Dirt Burners crew has a long history of doing things right, and it’s clear in the amount of people in attendance. Tons of RV’s and people camping out. Stage is set for some great racing action…game on!
