The most accessible pros in motorsports

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog about taking go-kart racing against some friends a bit too seriously while on a vacation (read “Competitive Much?”) to go watch my favorite baseball team play a few spring training games.

How To: Apply Decals Like A Pro [VIDEO]

From the Perspective of a Spectator

I started typing this blog while packing my bags for this weekend’s Cactus Classic in Scottsdale, AZ. It’s approximately the 1,379th “big” RC race that I’ve attended, and while I won’t be racing I still can’t help but get at least a little bit excited. While at last month’s The Dirt Nitro Challenge, I marveled […]

Chicken Soup for the Racer’s Soul

By now you’ve probably figured out that I’m sort of a softy when it comes to nostalgia and memories of growing up. I think where we come from and the things in our lives that occur mold us into the people we are today and for me RC was a huge part of that and […]
