I discovered RC Cars when a friend of mine introduced me to pan car parking lot racing. I got a Tamiya Grasshopper, threw on some foam tires and raced the rookie class. I was hooked. Since then, I’ve competed in almost every class, garnered factory sponsorships, made scores of lifelong friends and even traveled the globe as an A Main contender in several IFMAR World Championship events. RC racing has become a career that allowed me to purchase and operate my own track and expose thousands of people to the sport. Now that I am the Director of Race Events for A Main Hobbies, the opportunities to get new people on the track are endless. Every time you put your car on the track at Outback or Silver Dollar Raceway, I want you to feel the same excitement I did when I was that kid who couldn’t sleep the night before his next race.
