To make it easier to hear the PA system during the Shootout we will be using a FM transmitter this year.





So make sure to bring a FM radio or share one with your fellow racers in the pits so you know when you need to race next!

Just wanted to share this cool video that a local racer put together for us. This is NOT a video of the 2014 Shootout layout, just simply some video of the Hobby Haven store and the current layout for club racing.

I'm happy to announce that we have added two more sponsors to this year's Shootout! This brings our total sponsor count to 75, and 27 of these sponsors are 1st time sponsors for our race!



Hy-Vee Gas (http://www.hy-vee.com) has signed on to support the Shootout this year! They will be donating some coupons good for $.10 off a gallon of gas plus a FREE 22oz pop of your choice. And they will also be donating some coupons good for $.15 off a gallon of gas plus a FREE 32oz pop. Along with those great prizes they will also have a representative at the track during the Shootout handing out some discount meal vouchers. One voucher will allow you to purchase 2 roller grill items and a 32oz pop for only $2, and the other voucher will enable you to purchase 2 slices of pizza and a 32oz pop for only $3. All of these vouchers and coupons can redeemed at their Urbandale store located at Douglas and 86th street which is about 1.2 miles from Hobby Haven.



Legit Lidz RC Designs has also signed up to help sponsor the Shootout this year! Local RC racer and painter Paul Edenburn is the man behind this new company, and he is donating 2 gift certificates redeemable for a FREE paint job of your favorite 1/10 off-road body. Many local racers are currently running bodies that are a result of his great work, but you can check out more examples on his official FaceBook page with this link: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Legit-Lidz/711645978884807

R17 Racing is back as a sponsor again for this year's Shootout! You will see their popular chassis protectors on many racer's vehicles in our area and they are one of the best protectors available today.

But hey, you don't have to take my word for it, take Jason Snyder's instead! Check out this nice product review video to see which chassis protector he recommends. :)

After crunching all the numbers, adding some late entries at the store, and changing classes for some racers, we have determined that we have 6 entries still available for the Shootout in the following classes:

Stock 2WD SCT = 1
Stock Stadium Truck = 3
Modified 2WD SCT = 1
Novice = 1

Right now we have 143 different racers signed up for a total of 267 entries. This is a lot of people in one area and that doesn't even include, friends, parents, spectators, etc. that will also be in attendance that weekend.

So if you want to sign up for one of the remaining entry spots listed above you can stop in at Hobby Haven, or call them at (515)276-8785 and pay over the phone. Or you can use PayPal and send payments to iowarctracks(at)gmail dot com. The cost for entry fees are:

1st class: $35
Each additional class: $20
Novice: $20

If you want to sign up for a class that is full, you can do so and we will put you on the waiting list found on RCSignUp.com. You need to pay for your entry fees first to get on this list, and if we can't get you in then we will give you a full refund. If an entry opens up then we will grab the 1st racer on that class waiting list and plug them in.

Finally, for those racers who are signed up already, just a friendly reminder that you have till 7pm on 8/27 to ask for a full refund in case something comes up or you are worried about the weather and don't want to make the trip to Des Moines.
