Team Associated honors the late Gene Husting with a limited-edition ‘Members Only’ Jacket

Apr 03, 2014 No Comments by

It seems only fitting that RC industry icon and RC Hall of Fame member Gene Husting, the late founder of Team Associated, was always seen at the racetrack wearing an “Iconic Racer” jacket from Members Only. Now you too can own one with a special “old-school” Team Associated patch, and benefit a good cause at the same time. Full press release from AE after the jump.

If you knew Gene, you knew the jacket. For as long as anyone can remember, Gene Husting, an industry icon with racing in his blood, wore a Members Only Iconic Racers jacket.

In honor of Gene, Team Associated has produced a limited number of Official Members Only Iconic Racers jackets with an old-school Team Associated patch.

All net proceeds from the sale of these jackets will be donated in Gene’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association.

About the author

Associate Editor Since receiving my first hobby-grade RC car as a holiday present from my father nearly 20 years ago, I've been fortunate enough to meet more people and experience more opportunities through the adventures I've had in the RC industry than I would've ever imagined. I've done it all - from working at a hobby shop, to being a factory sponsored racer, to working for some of the biggest brands in the industry. I've enjoyed each and every one of the dozens of kits I've built, hundreds of events I've attended, and thousands of laps that I've logged at race tracks around the world, and my passion is to share those experiences with other hobbyists so that they may find fulfillment in their own RC careers.
