Take your place in the Winner’s Circle at the 3nd Annual Futaba Electric Challenge! This exciting two-day competition will take place on July 28-29, at the Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet, Illinois. And the best part of it is that you’ll enjoy two jam-packed days of racing and two challenging tracks — all for the price of just one entry fee!*

Here’s the way it works: You’ll race on the indoor track on Saturday, and the outdoor track on Sunday. The points you earn on Saturday will be carried over and added to the points you earn on Sunday to determine your final standing.

Everyone will have the chance to win cash and merchandise prizes, and all pre-registered drivers will take home a free event T-shirt and goody bag. And all TQs will receive a special custom award, as well!

The top 6 qualifiers in Pro Buggy will run a 7-lap race to determine their order on the starting grid for the first A Main. The TQ will start 6th, the 6th place qualifier will start on the pole — and the winner will get pole position in A Main #1 and a share of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales! The top 6 qualifiers in Sportsmen Buggy will run a 7-lap race for bragging rights and their share of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales!

But there’s a wild card: there won’t be any track marshals during the race. So drive carefully, because if you crash, you’re done in the Dash!

And for a “Saturday Night Special!”

The 15-Truck Team Short Course Enduro

This event is open to all 2WD and 4WD short course trucks and the entry fee is just $10.00. The field will be limited to 15 trucks and entries are on a “first come, first serve” basis. If you want in, you’d better sign up early! Starting position will be determined by pulling numbers out of a hat; you get the luck of the draw. The enduro will last 30 minutes, during which time teams will be required to make one battery change and one driver change. First prize for the winner is all fifteen entry fees — $150.00!

All TQs …

will take home a special, custom award!


Trophies will be awarded to the top six finishers in the B Mains — and everyone who finishes in A Mains!
