Adam Drake Gets a Wall Street Journal Story

Adam Drake Gets a Wall Street Journal Story

The Wall Street Journal is better known for stock tips than racing tips, but the iconic business media source has a nice piece on Adam titled “Radio-Control Cars: How the Pros Race.” It’s part of the WSJ’s “My Ride” series, which is usually about people’s interesting full-size cars, and Adam’s Lincoln Mark LT gets its due, but RC takes center stage in the video clip.

Mainstream media usually treats RC in a very “cute” way and gets a lot of stuff wrong (or focuses on the wrong thing, such as cost), but this is actually a nice introduction to what “real RC” is all about for a totally uninformed reader/viewer. Have a look.

  1. It’s quite refreshing to see someone like Adam Drake featured in the WSJ. To know we can enter races with pro’s of his stature is an awesome feeling. Not that an ordinary racer will be able to compete on their level but just knowing you could be in the same race is a plus. Thanks to Rohan Grant from Barnstormers RC for making things like this happen in our local RC racing community.
