Another Surf City in the Books and another great event!

I would like to thank all the drivers who made it down this year and endured the Florida like weather.

We had over 70% of our entries this year comprised of "Out of town" drivers which is almost unheard of these days, and I even heard the term "This is definitely a "Bucket list" race:-)

I am humbled by all the complements we received and would like you all to know that it's those kind words that makes this sometimes grueling business worth the time and effort!

All of us at OCRC will continue to push the envelope in this sport and never stop trying to innovate, grow and host the best events possible!

I would also like to thank Daniel Adams of Pro-Line for helping us all weekend in the shop as well as Pro-Line for their continued support for this event!

Next up..... Reedy Race (I just got a migraine)

AUGUST 23rd 2013

What an AWESOME weekend! 6th annual Pro-Line Surf City Classic in the books and easily the best one yet. 265 entries on nonstop racing action, 12 hours of qualifying followed by our after party with DJ Bobby B, a smoke machine, and a laser show... not to mention the free "refreshments"

Sundays mains were just as good. Close battles in all the classes after 10 minutes of running, more grip then you could shake a proverbial stick at, and gave out $4500 dollars cash cash moneys.

Huge thank you to Daniel Adams and the whole crew at Pro-Line for their 5th year as our title sponsor. With out them this race wouldn't be where it is today. Free tires, Free t-shirts, Free after party, Free drinks, and Prize money.

We aren't too sure what else we can do to top this year but myself and Daniel will come up with something. I'd also like to thank everyone who came out this weekend. We had great racing, no drama, met new people, made new friends, and had a great time. That's what a hobby is for.

Again thank you to all our sponsors Pro-Line, TLR, Team Associated, Airtronics, SchuurSpeed, Reedy, Tekin, HobbyWing, Sticky Kicks, UpGrade and Hobby Action. You guys are the best!

From the crew Nick, RB, Jackie, Dane, and of course Denny "O" (still not really sure why there's parenthesis around the O but there just is)

See you next year...

OC_RC will be open this Super Bowl Sunday with the game playing on the Big Screens! No need to miss a day of racing for a silly Football game. Come on out and have some fun. OC_RC will be BBQ'ing Hot Dogs and will have some snacks as well. Should be tasty.

The new SX Track is open as well so if you run 2wd open wheel, you can have some fun between races too.

This track is tons of fun for mini's too so bring them out and give it a try. You will dig the pump track style layout.

January 18th 2011

The new Nick Black designed layout is up and running! OC_RC opens at 12PM today so head on out the track and start tackling our latest masterpiece.

The new track is very open and flowing with plenty of hits and a sweet downhill whoops section to keep you honest. We know you guys are going to dig this one. See you at the track!

January 12th 2011

OC_RC Raceway is expanding to two, that's right two Off-Road Tracks! The new track will be where the Rock Crawling course was located. The dimension will be 70' by 30' deep. This new track will be exclusively for open wheeled two wheel drive vehicles.

The purpose of this track is to give the 2 wheelers an old school style track where they can get clean practice in without having to contest with the larger 1/8th scale vehicles and Short Course trucks.

We are counting on you two wheelers to make this track as successful as the big track.

Of course you can still run on the big track and we will still race 2wd on the big track. We will post a schedule soon so stay tuned!

With a sad heart we say 'so long for now' today to Kody Kessler, aka "Bluetooth". Kody was killed in a tragic car accident yesterday in Westminster, Ca.

Kody was a great kid to spend time with at the track. I first met him back in the So Cal Raceway days. He was always extremely happy, up beat and positive. He always had a smile on his face which help him gain his nickname thanks to So Cal race announcer "Slim".

Read more on the story here.

OC_RC Raceway will be taking donations for his family this week. Please open your hearts and wallets to help his Family during this difficult time. Thank you.

Like your good friends said "Ride those rails straight to heaven, you will be missed"

May you Rest in Peace young man. Godspeed.

We expect to have the expansion completed by Xmas 2009 and we will have very minimal downtime during the construction process. We may need to shut down the off-road track for a day or two when we finalize construction however, no race days will be affected. We will keep you posted on the dates as we progress on the new track.

The drivers stand will also be expanded to 50' as well to accommodate the new track size.
