Summer hours for the Saturday club racing series!

It's getting hot out there, and we're not talking about the intensity of competition on-track! Saugus is known for its heat during the summer months, so in an effort to keep our loyal club racers from burning up, every summer we move the start time forward two hours. So starting with the currently-running series, the start time for Saturday club racing now moves from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Stay cool out there!

Summer is fast approaching, and that means it's almost time for a Hot Rod Hobbies off-road racing institution: The 19th Annual Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout! One of our most popular events every year, the Shootout has something for everybody...including a special treat for the rookies, in an R/C Pro-Am where a pro driver will pit with you, help you with setup, coach you on driving, and help you take your skills to the next level. There's plenty here for experienced racers too, though - every major racing class, in a variety of skill levels.

Download a copy of the flyer by clicking the image above, and be sure to get your entries in early!
