RC Car and Truck
I'm aj and I've been running RC for about 3 years now. You can find me just about every weekend racing at my local track in Knoxville TN. And surrounding areas. I am currently running 4wd 1/10 buggy and 1/8 EBuggy. Hope to see everyone at the track!
I've been racing for about 5yrs now and was sponsored in 2012 by Boca Bearings. I currently race 1/8 Nitro and 1/10 TC all over the Midwest. My family goes to all my events.
I have been into RC for 27 years, and I loved every moment of it since I seen my first race when I was 9 years old. I am not the best driver, but I can hold my own most times. Where I make up for that is in my knowledge of RC. I'm always willing to help others with questions, setups, and repairs. I try to race many different classes, as every vehicle reacts different and I like different challenges. I also have lots of fun racing my friends and that's what this sport is all about. I am also disabled due to brain surgery, but nothing keeps me from going and racing my RC's.
My name is Kyle Hollinger and I am from Mechanicsburg, PA. I have been racing RC cars for 4 years now. I race mod buggy, mod 4wd buggy, and mod SCT. I really enjoy traveling to different races around the country, meeting new people, and helping out fellow racers. I work very hard at being the best driver I can be, but at the end of the day its all about having fun. My latest achievements include winning the Roar Region 2 Championship Series in Mod SCT, 3rd in Mod 4wd Buggy, and 5th in Mod 2wd Buggy. I placed 2nd in both Mod 2wd Buggy and Mod SCT at the Elite Electric Race as well 5th in Mod 4wd Buggy.
Father son team, dad wrenches boy drives. This will be our third year with Boca Bearings.
At the end of the day we still roll smooth.
I enjoy racing RC cars and enjoy helping people at the track with what I know and with info of the product that I use and run.

I have a love for this sport that has let me progress from a part time weekend race to a competitive passionate racer. I currently race every weekend through out the whole year. I am a confident competitor at all of the races that I attend. Along with my drive to progress in the sport I recently made this a family affair with the addition of my wife racing. And soon my 2years son will also be in the sport. We love being able to promote the sport to everyone that we meet to bring in new people to the sport of RC. At the races that I attend I always finish in the A Mains top places. I strive to be the very best racer that i can. I always try to find the best equipment and the best setups to run, I always look for a way to improve what I am doing at the tracks. I am considerate of my fellow racers and take in their advice as well as when asked for help I will always offer my take on a given situation. I enjoy traveling to new tracks and finding new places to recommend to others. I feel I am a well rounded racer, I race in many different classes from 1/8 Buggy Pro/Truggy Pro, 1/10 2wd/4wd Buggy Mod, 1/10 2wd/4wd SCT Mod. I am never afraid of a challenge. In the winter I also race Indoor Off-Road tracks.

Hi, my name is Randy Barymon and I am 34 years old living in Jonesboro Arkansas. I have only been racing RC for the past couple of years, but have been into the RC hobby for about 14 years. I currently run in the stock SCT, 1/8 scale Buggy, and 1/8 scale E-Late Model classes at our local off road/dirt oval track. My favorite class being the 1/8 scale Late Model. Even though I have only been racing for a couple of years I have had much success at the local level with many first place and podium finishes. Above all I have been having a lot of fun competing and socializing with other like minded people. I like to help the other new racers with their race setups and often recommend products that I use myself. I am never far removed from RC as I spend most of my extra time hanging out at my local hobby shop and on forums learning about the hobby.

Running off-road in the summer and carpet in the winter keeps me up to speed and versatile. I understand the importance of professional representation and the bottom line.

I was quite young when I was bitten by the RC Bug, in fact my first memories were of watching my father build and run RC boats on the St. Lawrence River at our cottage. I then spent many hours fixing his electric cars after breaking them before he would get home from work. However I always was drawn to 1/8 Scale and bugged my parents for years before Santa finally brought me a 1978 2WD Kyosho Rowdy Baja!! I started running RC Cars for Fun with friends and family and then that turned into racing, racing led to my passion and now becoming a Professional RC Racer has been a lifelong dream come true!! Something I have been dreaming about for almost 40 years now!! So please follow along with me as I chase more dreams as I cannot do it alone!

I am an avid electric racer in the Atlanta Metro area that has been racing for 18 years. I originally started racing in Tampa, Florida in the early 90’s and strictly raced 1/10th electric vehicles. I enjoyed some success racing in some of the legendary races held at Lake Park like the Losi Winter Champs race.
I moved away from RC in the early 2000 because there was a large shift from electric to nitro. I stayed out of the RC hobby for a few years until recently. I started back racing in RC around 2 1/2 years ago when the explosion of SCT help bring a resurgence to electric racing.
I am heavily involved in the RC racing community here in Atlanta. I understand how important it is to our sport to promote it and bring in new racers.

My name is Igor Fokeev, I am a 28 year old IT guy by day, and overtime aviation and tech buff by night, I currently reside in Long Island, NY. From as far back as I can remember, aviation was always at the top of my list… when I was a kid (in Russia), my grandmother was an engineer for Sukhoi, so naturally I was bit by the bug and never looked back. I have been flying electric RC helicopters for about three years now, but my experience with the RC hobby stretches back over 14 years (mostly bashing RC cars with my friends, which I am still into). I enjoy many aspects of life, and a major one is helping people. Whether its RC cars, helis, or your PC, I have always made a point to help friends and strangers alike figure out the complexities of this great hobby… I am always glad to help. I am still the neighborhood RC guru and am on my way to begin competing in the RC heli circuit (both 3D and FAI/F3C). Along with RC, I also spend much time flying full scale, fishing and skiing… and using Boca bearings wherever I can stick them (like my buddies dust buster).
Been involved with the hobby over 14 yrs. Car for two years, Airplane for 2 years, and Helicopter for 9 years. Currently living in California, love weather here, most important that I can fly my helis and go to funflys all year long. Looking forward to be part of the team.
