The Ultimate Crossover Hobby

The Ultimate Crossover Hobby

Yesterday, Contributing Photographer Sean Earnest and I met with off-road racer Jonathan Elkins at his race shop in Escondido, CA, for an interview and photo shoot with the Pro-Lite truck that he races in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series. Elkins’ main sponsor is Venom R/C, and his specially-built off-road racer was prepped to look like the brand’s Gambler SC with an eye-catching vinyl wrap that makes it stand out from his competitors.  Look for the November 2012 issue of RC Car Action for a full interview with Jonathan, and check back here to for a full gallery of shots from Elkins’ shop.

While it came as no surprise that Jonathan Elkins had a background in the hobby prior to his full-size racing days, he’s far from the only RC enthusiast who daylights as a professional racer or athlete; the accessibility and fun of radio control make it an ideal past time for the eternally competitive. Aside from RC, what other sports and activities do you enjoy?
