2011 Futaba / OS Engines Nitro Challenge – Dirt Burners

July 15, 2011  Kirkwook, MO

Eric Schutt here on the scene on behalf of RC Car Action checking out the action at DirtBurners.  Just got in Friday and here’s a quick check in.

First, the new layout has seen lots of laps already.  This track is known for developing a healthy blue groove, and it’s already forming.  The weather has been dry, and this weekend is slated to stay that way…but hot!

The Dirt Burners crew has a long history of doing things right, and it’s clear in the amount of people in attendance.  Tons of RV’s and people camping out.  Stage is set for some great racing action…game on!

Event Sponors:  Futaba, OS JConcepts, O’Donnell, Duratrax, Muchmore, Team Associated, AKA, Byrons Fuel, Kalguard, Performance Competition Products, Dynamite, Amain Hobbies, Fastlane Graphics, RJD Hobbies, & Competition Heat Inc.

The blue-groove track surface should mean fast laps and serious competition.
