Racing fee increases, effective December 1st

Hot Rod Hobbies takes pride in providing our racers and customers with the best possible hobby store and race tracks. In an effort to continue doing that, we have to make a couple changes to our club race and practice fees. As most of you are aware, the cost of doing business continues to rise each and every year. Despite this our club race and practice fees have remained the same for the past ten years. In order to continue providing a great hobby shop and racing facility, we will be adjusting our first class entry fee and practice fee effective December 1, 2015.

We apologize for any inconvenience these increases bring our racers but they are necessary to continue doing what we do best. Thank you for your continued support of the World Famous Hot Rod Hobbies and we will see you at the track or in the shop!

Effective December 1, 2015
First class club race entry fee - $20
Additional class club race entry fee - $10
Practice fee - $15

2015 Off-Road Shootout Results Are In!

Typically, racers that attend the Hot Rod Hobbies Off-Road Shootout every summer have their EZ-Up tents to protect themselves and their gear from the unyielding rays of the Santa Clarita Summer sun. Not so, this year! It was to protect them from torrential rain that drowned out our third and fourth rounds of qualifying on Saturday! Our racers would not be dissuaded by mother nature, be it rain or shine...they came to race, and race they did. Sunday saw the crowning of new Shootout champions and we hope that in spite of the weather, everyone had a great time at this year's event!
