Parking Lot Racing is back in San Diego! [Video][Photos]

In the whirlwind off the Short Course and Off-Road frenzy these past few years, On-Road racing as sadly taken a backseat to its more popular off-road brother. This has been true in my local San Diego on-road parking lot racing scene, but thankfully not for much longer. The folks over at decided to change that and offered local racers a well organized race program. As for myself, it was great to race on-road again and get back to my roots where it all began for me in RC. The turnout was awesome with 81 race entries and even the “Pink Ladies” were on hand to offer BBQ for Boobies to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer. A big thanks to all the track crew and for an awesome race day and I look forward to the next race July 7th! – Joel Navarro
