Central Valley RC Raceway – Nitro Nights Summer Series
Archive for Race Events
Thanks Pro-Line for all the support
On April 1 – 3 I raced in the 28th Pro-Line April Fools classic held at Murf’s IR/CR Raceway in Salt Lake City, UT. There were 328 entries and 42 heats. The track was hard packed clay and high bit blue grooved. The track layout was really fun it made for some exciting Racing .
We woke up at 4:30 AM Easter morning and headed to Beachline Raceway at Superior Hobbies. What better way to enjoy the day then spending it with good friends racing. While David was gluing up some tires for his Nitro Buggy I headed to the track to get in some practice laps with my Short Course Truck. When I was finished I went back out with David to pit for him as he got some practice laps in with his Buggy. He ended up having some clutch issues and went back to the pit to work on it. He made the decision then to change out his engine all together, but was having a hard time getting it tuned in. Being new to Nitro we still have a lot to learn. #Richard Phillipps was more than willing to help us out. He knows a lot about tuning Picco engines as his sons are sponsored by them. He even took the time and gave us pointers on set up and lent us his shock oils as we didn’t have heavy enough weight for the high traction track.
The 2016 JBRL Nitro Series kicked off last weekend at Dialed In Rc with 23 heats and just over 250 entries it made for a long day of awesome racing. Many top pros were in attendance trying to put their early mark on the points lead for this 8 race series.
Intermediate Truggy: Brendon Larrowe 1st, Cameron Neff 2nd

Saturday April 2nd, 2016 marked Chapter 3 of the 2016 RECON G6 Scale RC Adventure Series, known as “April Fowl” which is kind of like a triple play on words; April Fool’s but with Fowl because of all the DUCKS and GEESE in Oregon, but also a foul because hey, April Fool’s is on the 1st! Parker is so creative, if you have met him or heard him speak at an event, you already know this.
The Pro-Line Team made the grueling 12-hour trek from HQ in Banning, CA to Grants Pass, OR and while the drive was Quite long, it was also quite beautiful and very much worth it. Over 200 entries made this the largest RECON G6 to date, West of the Mississippi. Between Parker and the Dry Creek RC Crawling Course Crew, the event was a great success. Simply put, the RECON G6 is a Scale RC Adventure like no other. Make sure to find an event near you, or if your up for some traveling, you will not be disappointed! Read the rest of this entry »
Went to Coyote Hobbies for the Pro-Line California State Championships race had ups and downs I qualified 7th in the C-Main in Mod Buggy, 6th in the Stock Buggy B-Main and TQ in Mod Truck B-Main and went on to bump out of the mod truck B-Main to go to the A-Main I also used Pro-Line Primes and they were awesome.
Went Back to Coyote Hobbies for the first round of JBRL and had some bad luck threw qualifying but ended up 6th in the E-Main in Mod Buggy and 6th in 4WD Mod Buggy C-Main. I was able to bump out of the E-Main in 2WD and was cut short on bumping again to the C-Main and in 4wd I was going to bump into the B-Main and Brain Sullivan edged me out for the bump I also used Pro-Line Primes there.
The Pro-Line products work awesome for me.
