Vintage Off-road Nationals – Saturday Gallery

Sep 16, 2012 4 Comments by

What an awesome first day at the Vintage Nats. This year the race left the indoor scene behind and went true old school at the brand new outdoor club track at the Bethel Racearena. The topsoil surface and true vintage layout lent itself to some awesome racing. While 2wd and Stadium truck are always great classes to watch, this year’s 4wd and Classic classes have grown to be super competitive as well. Here’s a look at some of the action from todays qualifying.

About the author

Associate Editor I can say that I’ve never done ANYTHING as long as I’ve been into RC. I got my first car when I was 11 and never looked back. Since then I’ve owned hundreds of cars and trucks and raced everything from Off-Road to Boats but I’m an Oval racer at heart. Whether I’m down siding a jump or going fast and turning left, it’s all on and my foot is to the floor! I love seeing new people discover our hobby and helping anyone I can enjoy it more. When I’m not racing or writing, I like to restore vintage RC cars and organize the Vintage Offroad Nationals. I’m also a dad and enjoy teaching my son how to drive and watching him get into this hobby on his own.

    This is the greatest thing ever.
    For me, I don’t have a ton of interest in the newer stuff. I’ve got a Nitro Rustler that sits gathering dust in a cabinet, because I’d rather take my old Tamiya Hilux Racer out and run it around. Perhaps it’s nostalgia, or reliving my childhood, but I often find myself scouring ebay for vintage kits, and barely give notice to anything “new”. This hobby has only ever been about fun for me, and the old stuff is just more fun in my mind. Not to mention cheaper.
