Fall is upon us and it’s time for AMain Performance Hobbies’ 6th Annual JConcepts “Fall Brawl” at the world-famous Silver Dollar R/C Raceway. The weather is cooling down, which means 1/10 and 1/8th -scale racers will be converging in Chico, California for a consistent loamy track—real off-road racing!
Silver Dollar R/C raceway has been redesigned to support both 1/10-scale and 1/8-scale racing—eBuggy and Nitro 1/8th will be offered as alternate classes at the Fall Brawl. Check out this video of the hybrid layout used for both 1/10-scale and 1/8-scale racing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qS7sAnF52s0
The track crew will be watering the surface after every heat and with cool temperatures the surface will be nice and full of good grip—braap!
The Fall Brawl is a one-day race event on October 21st, but racers can run the layout and practice on October 22nd. We have the privilege of having Justin Wilde call the racing action. Justin did a fantastic job in 2016, so it was only right to have him back as the race announcer. His crew of racers from the Northwest will also be making the trek to compete at the Fall Brawl.
There will be race classes for everyone including Open and Pro divisions based on skill level. Don’t forget the “First Family of RC” title. In 2012, the title was won by Rob and Jared Chunn, 2013 went to Rob and Jared Thulin and 2014/2015/2016 was awarded to David and Jordyn Constant. This year’s format will be the same as in years’ past. We’ll be combining the finishes of kids 14 and under with their father’s finishing position. The team with the best finishes will be engraved on the First Family of RC Trophy forever.
Here is some links to some videos of past events held at Silver Dollar RC Raceway to get an idea of what a World class facility this is.
