Top Notch Series @ Redlands RC Raceway

Ronda Drake confiscated my camera to do a little race coverage of her own.

The Top Notch Series or the TNS as most Southern Californian racers know it, has been having tremendous success and is becoming popular fixture in the SoCal race scene. It all started back in December at my home track SDRC Raceway, and has hit up popular tracks in the area that include Coyote Hobbies Raceway, OCRC Raceway, 702 Raceway, IERC Raceway and this past Saturday at Redlands RC Raceway. Erik “Notch” Johnson is the man behind the TNS series, and has been artfully creating sick track layouts that racers really like and love to be challenged by. The latest stop at Redlands RC Raceway welcomed the TNS crew with open arms and let them work their magic that didn’t disappoint. Having raced in the 2wd Stock Buggy and Pro 4 SC classes, I can attest to the well ran race program that kept everything running smoothly and on time; all while having a blast! With only one stop left on the Top Notch Series at the world renown Revelation Raceway (March 30th 2013), you still have a chance to participate and race against some of the top local racers as well as top factory pro’s. The Top Notch Series did such a great job in its inaugural season, I can’t wait to see whats in store for next season! – Joel Navarro
