2011 ROAR Electric Off-road Nationals – JC Has Arrived
We are here in Union City California just outside of San Francisco for the 2011 ROAR Electric Off-Road National Championships. The best RC drivers in the country are here at Nor-Cal Hobbies freshly back from Finland and the IFMAR World Championships a few weeks back.
Jason Ruona, myself (Rich Muller) and our newest JConcepts family member, John Piant spent the afternoon and evening traveling across country on Tuesday. Leaving the hot humid Florida weather, stopping for a few hours in Las Vegas which was only 106 degrees to arrive in beautiful Northern California where the temps were in the mid 50’s last night and will stay in the high 70’s during the day. Our lay over in Vegas was delayed just a bit but it gave us more time to dump money into the slot machines and enjoy some Blue Tacos. We all left Vegas slightly poorer.
The pits are filling up, the drive over from the hotel in our Secret Service SUV with Ryan Maifield, Tanner Denney, John, Jason and myself packed with tires and gear was longer than expected due to an extra long short cut Brent Theike discovered.
Well it’s time to glue up some tires and hit the track, gotta go get some photos and videos. We have some new very cool JConcepts products to debut this week so stay tuned for that.
