Ok, the announcement was made at the CRCRC race today so Dave Richmond (scrapheep) asked me to get a thread started. So here goes.

First the link:

http://stateseries.rcprosites.com/site/op/content/contentid/605

The full schedule will be up VERY soon.

I can tell you there will be 4 races in the series.

The first race will be in May, the second in June, the third in July.
The Finals will be held in August.

Second,

Dave Richmond is the go to man for this series, he is the offical Director for the Ohio State series. I am just helping him get the word out about the series. He is at the CRCRC race without access to the internet but wants to get the word out ASAP! He carefully planned the series dates (and RAIN dates) to NOT conflict with our Regional Pro Series races so racers can compete in both if they want to.

I am sure Dave will fill in more details as soon as he gets back from Columbus.

I noticed that as well. I am sure when he posts the schedule he will fix the incorrect links.

Thanks for the info.

will it be elec or nitro or both
I am pretty positive all R/C Pro series summer races are Nitro only. They normally run electric in the winter.

I copied the following from the R/C Pro website. This was posted by Dave Lovett

"RC Pro’s State Series purpose is for offering those states a series to promote racing locally. We want to bring big time racing to those racers that haven’t been to many big races. We are also looking to develop relationships with more tracks to be able to have more tracks to choose from for future division races. This series is a laid back series but still has the feel of any national event. We want the racers and tracks involved to enjoy themselves and want to help turn this into a great State series for all states involved.



The State Series for 2007 will be a 3 race series with a state final. Racers will score points in 2 of the 3 rounds and carry those points into the state finals. Points from those races will be added to the points from the finals (which will be x 1.5) to crown a state champion in 5 classes. The standard RC Pro points system will be used."


The classes are:

1/8 Scale Expert
1/8 Scale Sportsman
Gas Truck
Monster Truck
Arena Truck

R/C Pro runs their electric series races in the winter so they are going on as I type this. I believe the finals for our region is in May.

All the information is located at http://stateseries.rcprosites.com/
The schedule is posted on the RC Pro website, and further information will be added soon.

The purpose of this series is to promote RC racing at the local level, and bring a BIG race atmosphere closer to home. The goal of this series is to be entertaining for the racers and also for the spectators.

The series races will conform to RC Pro Series rules http://nitrooffroad.rcprosites.com/site/op/content/contentid/236

The dates listed for the series will also provide for a warmup race 7 days prior to the race date, as well as a makeup date 7 days later in case of inclement weather.


I'm sure there will be a lot of questions... so feel free to ask away :wave:

Porkchop...there is no series fee, and you dont have to be an RC Pro member to race the state series...so RC Pro numbers dont apply.
Entry fees are set according to RC Pro Series as follows;
Points races $25 per 1st entry $20 per additional entry.
State Finals $35 per 1st entry $25 per additional entry.

Tony... yes, any sponsored driver will have to run in the expert class, but you dont have to be sponsored to be eligeble for the expert class.

No, you would have to attend the regional races if you want to score points for the national finals. You can run both series races with no problem though.

if you become an rc pro series member do these points allow you to accumulate points for the regional series?

Good questions get good answers :thumbsup:
I should add that RC Pro would like all racers to declare thier region, regardless of RC Pro membership status, as a sort of census to help determine the activity level in any given region...translation; helps us get regional races closer to home.
