Adrenaline RC was excited to host the 2nd Annual Invitational this year! This 3 day event was a blast and we couldn't have asked for a better weekend!
Here was the breakdown of the weekend:
Friday: Open Practice
Saturday: 3 Rounds of Qualifiers
Sunday: Mains & Huck Fest
We had open practice from 12pm-9pm the night before the races started. People started to pour in, set up camp for the weekend, and drive late into the evening. Schaffer's BBQ Truck pulled up and offered everything from delicious pulled pork BBQ to home made potato salad!
Saturday morning came quick, and the doors opened at 8! Racers began to stream in and were welcomed by the big invitational banner and gift bags for everyone. We were so fortunate to have several sponsors donate free samples, product, gift cards, etc for all of our drivers to have! Every gift bag had Shoe Goo, a Traxxas Coozie, lanyard, Simple Green samples, Adrenaline RC stickers, and more! After receiving their gift bags and signing up for the classes they wanted to run, drivers went to dig in to the breakfast we provided. This year we had Panera Bread quiches and breakfast sandwiches. Additionally, we had Dunkin Donuts and coffee!
Drivers were able to sign up for as many classes and events that they wanted to run, it was all included in their ticket price. Additionally they got lunch on Saturday which was Subway and Chic-fil-a!
We knocked out 3 rounds of qualifiers and ended the night with a fire pit and s'mores.
The last and final day approached, and the competition grew as Sunday was all about mains. This would determined who would win one of the sweet Adrenaline RC Invitational trophies. We actually got our trophies custom made and designed by MX Trophies who also made the Reedy Race trophies. Once the mains were done it was time to find out which team would be this year's relay race winners! The winners get their names engraved on the huge trophy cup that sits in our shop as well as gift cards to Adrenaline RC and bragging rights!
Breakfast and lunch were both provided on Sunday! Dunkin' Donuts was for breakfast. As for lunch these drivers demolished 300 boneless wings from Buffalo Wild Wings and many pizzas from Little Caesars.
This year we added a new event called Huck Fest! There were two sub events: the High Jump and the Long Jump. We built a huge box filled with hay for cars to land in after attempting the high jump, but we quickly found out not many people could land in it. Luckily, there weren't too many casualties other than Steve Batten breaking his car in half.
A big shout out to all of our sponsors this year! This event wouldn't be possible without you!
