The American Diabetes Association is sending a representative to give us more information on what our donations are doing and we will be distributing information pamphlets.

This year we will remember those of us that have fallen to this disease and contributed so much to our sport! We are dedicating this race to “Big” Steve Forester and remembering our friend Charles “Pork Chop” Garten.

Steve Forester, a good friend to all of us, has passed away due to complications from diabetes, multiple strokes and a serious infection.  He will always be remembered as the man with the booming voice, running a phenomenal race day here at Medina RC Raceway.  He also spearheaded the Annual Diabetes Charity Race, which will now be include him as well as Charles Garten (Pork Chop) in memory.   I intend to keep this tradition going, spreading the word about the affects of diabetes and honoring our friends as we go.

Steve was a dear friend and will be sorely missed.  Rest in Peace Steve Forester.

Racing this weekend will be SUNDAY at NOON

Storms rolling in tonight and tomorrow, so to have the best racing possible, racing is being moved to Sunday.

There will be no cancellations this weekend unless absolute disaster strikes, so bring your boots as the marshaling spots may still be a little wet, and bring big pins as the track may have a lot of peat moss on the race line.

We will have an air compressor plugged in by the stand to to blow off any peat that sticks to your vehicles.

We just wanted to thank all of you who helped kick off the 2013 season with such a great start! Everyone has made this years start much easier than anticipated and the Medina crew thanks each and every one of you that continues to contribute in a big way! Thank you all!

Currently we are working hard to bring you the best place to race your RC. From newcomers to seasoned drivers, we want to make this years track builds and events bigger and better than ever. With our first new track build right around the corner, starting in may! Thank you for your patience as we are currently working hard to set up this new year with every intention of making Medina R/C Raceway the place to race!

Our first race on April 6th was a fun one for sure. You can find a newly added gallery of all the race action in our “Race Photos” tab.
Thank you all for the wonderful turn out. It was a great start to the upcoming 2013 season!!
