Exciting, Family Friendly and Free racing entertainment coming to Mercer County, PA. this weekend! Big Dog RC in Stoneboro, PA. will be hosting stop #2 of the Midwest Series Nitro OnRoad Race series. Some of the fastest RC drivers in the country will be testing their skill driving their nitro-methane powered RC cars to speeds of over 600 “scale” miles per hour! This event will draw amateur and professional drivers from around the eastern United States.
Racing is run by the “Midwest Series” organization, which has been around since 1969 and has held races at numerous tracks around the eastern part of the country for over 50 years. “The nitro powered cars, with multi-geared transmissions, fuel stops, tire changes and 20,000+ RPM motors are as close to Formula One racing as you can get in a model car!” said John Raskob, who owns Big Dog RC with Robin, his wife.
The Holiday Inn Express, at the Grove City Outlet Mall, will be the host Hotel and provide discounts to drivers, support crew and spectators attending the event.
