This past weekend Adrenaline RC celebrated a big milestone! We were so excited to celebrate our 1 year anniversary! When we were planning and designing what we wanted our anniversary weekend to look like we immediately thought of showing our customers some love. After all, we wouldn't be around if it wasn't for each and every one of you who supports us. We decided to make custom invitations for each of of our customers and invite them to the biggest party of the year!
We spent hours planning catering, contacting sponsors, and coming up with creative races to make this weekend a blast. It all came together perfectly!
Doors opened at 9am and the racers began to pour in to the shop. Dunkin' Donuts and Panera Bread waited on our customers as they got themselves set up and prepared for a long day of racing. As each racer registered they received a sample bottle of Simple Green. (Shout out to Simple Green for sponsoring our event ;) ) Each table was packed in the both the shop and the track building. Additionally, racers were set up outside enjoying the beautiful weather on Saturday.
-20 Heats per Qualifier
-4 Rounds of Qualifiers
This weekend we launched our 40+ Class for 1/8 Electric Buggy & 4x4 Short Course. These participants were allowed to run both the regular and 40+ heats for these classes. This class is a fun way to divide up the competition and allow different people to win awards! The 40+ classes will continue in to our Fall Points Series starting October 22nd.
Throughout the day on Saturday we did random giveaways! Our Sponsors who will be listed at the bottom of this post, donated some incredible product to give away to our customers! It worked out perfectly that we had enough random giveaway prize bags for every single one of customers!
Lunch time came around and we had Chick-Fil-A and Subway Cater. A line quickly formed and the food was gone before we knew it. It was a huge hit! As the day progressed people played corn hole between heats, socialized, and watched college football. Around 9pm we were finishing up the 3rd Qualifier, so we pulled out the fire pit and made s'mores! What a great way to end the night! We ended up doing Qualifier 4 at 9am on Sunday.
We made four big collage posters with pictures from the past year of all our customers! We had everyone sign next to their picture so we have a fun keepsake to hang up at the shop! We are so thankful for our RC community!
With one long day of racing under our belts, people poured back in to the shop at 8:30am to prepare for the 4th round of qualifiers. Our racers left their spots set up so they didn't have to do much when they came back on Sunday. Breakfast was provided with coffee, donuts, and pastries from Dunkin Donuts and Panera Bread. Fizzle's BBQ Food Truck came out to serve up some lunch! Once the last qualifier was done it was finally time to start mains.
There were 20 heats within mains and the adrenaline was truly pumping by then. This was it. This is what determined who would win a plaque! The top 5 racers from each main could win a plaque. We had plaques for pictures, but we will be sending each winner a customized plaque with their name on it. Once the mains were completed we had three unique races to run!
A group of guys decided to run a 1/10 Stock 2wd Buggy A3-Main. Each person put $20 in a jar and whoever won, would take all the cash. The winner, Hunter Waters, won $120! Next we ran our relay race. It was teams of 3, E-buggy, 4wd Short Course, and 4wd 1:10 Buggy. Each car did 10 laps and the team who finished the relay first won $150 to Adrenaline RC and their names will be engraved on our huge relay trophy! Wil Alameida, Bryan Frymyer, and Brandon Swisher won the relay! Finally, we ended with a last man standing race. Whoever could race the longest won. Tommy Gooch, was able to outlast the rest of the racers! He won a $25 gift card to Adrenaline RC.
Overall it was such a fun day! We even gave away 3 bigger prizes! We gave away a small Kyosho drone, a Kyosho boat, and a 3PV Futaba Controller donated by Hobbico!
We are so thankful that the weekend was so successful and everyone had a great time! We can't wait to do it again next year!
A Big Thanks to our Sponsors!
