Come out this Saturday and check out the new infield track change we made. Saturday April 2nd is our next club race. Gates open at 9am, racing at 11am. A giant thanks goes out to Doug, Tobias, Gino, Steven and John for all their hard work in making this happen. Heads up everyone, we only have 4 more races before we close the track down 2 weeks in preparation for this years Motown Showdown. Get your club race fix in now. Things are about to get busy at MRCR. Also don't forget, if you sign up early (on or before April 22nd) for the Motown Showdown, you can get an event T-shirt for only $5. After the cut off you can still get a shirt but they will be full price.

Spooktacular Challenge 2015 results

Its been awhile since we had a Friday night race. But this didn’t stop our racers from making this event a success. 48 entries and so much fun! The Pumpkin Bash race was crazy and had lots of laughs. Thanks goes out to all that participated in the Bash. For this event we also tried out a new scoring software. We had a few hiccups do to our learning curve, so thanks for being patient while we tried to figure out some things. The track conditions last night were amazing! The rain earlier in the week and the cool temps helped the track to hold water very well making our clay super sticky all night long. As always some really close battles in many classes. Thanks to everyone that came out and congrats to all our winners. We will hopefully be doing this again next year.

Videos to come soon.

Halloween Spooktacular Challenge 2015

The Halloween Spooktacular Challenge is a new event we are adding for 2015. Wear your costume to the race and your first entry is FREE! Since this is a Friday night race we are restricted on time and will be limiting the class list to only 5 classes.

Classes

  • Stock Buggy
  • Mod SCT
  • 4wd Buggy
  • 4wd SCT
  • Novice

In addition to a regular race program we will be doing a special Pumpkin Bash race which has a $5 buy in. The race will be a single main race with zero qualification runs. There will be zero turn marshals and the race will only be 4 minutes long. Winners will be determined by lap times and/or last man standing after the 4 minutes is up. There will be 3 Pumpkins placed on the track as obstacles. The top 3 winners will win these Pumpkins and take them home.

Gates open a 5PM, racing at 7PM. There will be two rounds of qualification and single mains. Funworks closes at 12AM on Friday nights so this gives us only 5 hours to do the program and the Pumpkin Bash, thus the reason for the class limit.

This should be a fun event and we hope you all help us make it a success on its 1st annual run.

Podium Pics from this years Hotdog Classic. For anyone that might be interested, we have added eBuggy Lite to our roster.

First and foremost a giant thank you goes out to our headline sponsor for this event RCJuice.com (http://www.rcjuice.com) for the amazing support of this event for the second year in a row. With their help we have created a fun and competitive event for all the "Hotdog" racers in Norcal. We had racers from Fresno, Sonora, Merced, Tracy, Modesto and many other places throughout the valley descend upon MRCR to stake their claim as the Hotdog Champion. Funworks and MRCR teamed up to provide all our racers with free hotdogs, as many as you could want! There was also plenty of free sodas for all provided by MRCR.

The weather was perfect on this Fall day, not too hot and a slight breeze along with clear blue skies was very enjoyable. The racing got underway shortly after 11am after Pickles drivers meeting. The program ran quick as we had 3 heats and mains to get through. Many people stepped up to help make the day run smooth. An enormous THANKS goes out to Jeff A. for standing in as the water truck for this day with Doug's absence. Jeff kept the track nice and tacky for us all day. Equally appreciated is all the help with Announcing from racers Tobias, Saul, Jeff and Connor.

After the heat races were over RCJuice put on an amazing raffle giving away batteries, chargers, tools, shirts, ESC's and much more. Many people came away with some very nice prizes and for this we cant thank RCJuice enough. The Mains came and the racing got fierce especially in the 4wd SCT class that had one very spectacular finish. RCJuice once again stepped up to make this event even better after the mains were all said and done and awards and podium pics were being given out, RCJuice provided the top 3 winners in every class with $25, $15 and $10 gift certificates to use at their online store.

Congratulations goes out to all our winners and please help MRCR by showing some support for our wonderful sponsor by "liking" their Facebook page and visiting their website. While you are there purchase a few of the wonderful RC goodies they have to offer.
