Chico, Ca, April 18, 2013 – After extensive testing A Main Hobbies has opted to replace the high-bite clay at Silver Dollar RC Raceway with a local soil chosen by world-renown track builder, Joey Christensen. The decision to use a local soil in lieu of the hard-packed clay will benefit racers who will experience less tire wear and more impressive track features. According to Joey Christensen, “the new soil was necessary to build killer layouts and to be worthy of the SDRCR facility.” The new surface will be easier to shape and change for track layouts.” Christensen will also design and build the SDRCR track for the Off-Road Challenge and upcoming 1/10-scale Electric Pre-Worlds. With the ROAR Nationals and IFMAR World Championships heading to Silver Dollar RC Raceway it was imperative to find a soil that would result in the best possible experience for racers who compete.
As a result of the existing clay being removed and new dirt being trucked in, the Silver Dollar Off-Road Challenge will now be moved to May 17th-19th.
“We want the racers who frequent SDRC Raceway to enjoy the surface and layouts we create. We also needed a soil that was easier to manage. If racers experience less tire wear, and are able to drive on several exciting layouts throughout the year, they’ll have more fun. Our decision was easy when considering our customers, the racers, and our long term goals with Silver Dollar RC Raceway.” – A Main Hobbies’ CEO, Kendall Bennett
