We will be running the track wet, all weekend! No blue groove, this event is all about true off-road racing!

So set the dates on your calendar, November 20-22 and send your entry form in early...this is going to be a great race! Click the image above to download a printable entry form/flyer.

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! Below are the winners of their respective classes...please click this link to download the full results and congratulations to all of our winners!
