      Please get in as soon as possible by RSVP'ing (pre-payment not required):
      RC Signup: http://jscully.tk/2015nats OR Google Form: http://jscully.tk/2015natsform OR text/call 416.931.2502 OR email scully@joescully.com OR facebook message Joe Scully​ OR for series or returning racers, reply to this post with "put me in".
      We would like to show our 20+ Sponsors just how excited you are.
      You may win a commemorative wrapped body just by racing!
      Still on the fence?
      This national is a 3-day spectacular, and though some may not be able to make it Friday; there's still good news: we do "Open Practice" before "Controlled Practice" on Saturday. Last year, some racers were able to get 24 laps in during "Open Practice" on Saturday.
      And... those that can make it on Friday; last year we had one racer post 96 laps with 1 hour and 18 minutes of Track Time, (plus marshalling and wrenching). Before Controlled Practice started on Saturday, they had posted 115 Laps with 1 Hour and 32 Minutes of Track Time.... sounds like a record to beat!

      The 2015 Canadian 5ifth Scale Nationals are a wrap, and this year was bigger and better than the year before!
      Our official tally was 104 paid and run entries, beating our previous record for the LARGEST ever 5ifth Scale Race in Canada, plus 31 sponsors with product and financial support, over 6 hours of open practice Friday and 50 races over the course of Saturday and Sunday.
      4 States (California, Ohio, Illinois and New York) and 3 Provinces (Manitoba, Quebec and Ontario) battled it out for National Championships over the course of the 3-day event.
      Kudos to Tom Bitz, Steve Emery, Gilly, the Lee family and the Walton Race Crew for the grounds being in great condition (and warmer showers). The feedback on the new layout was that it was nothing short of phenomenal.
      Just like the last big 5ifth scale race this month, PowerJam Worlds, Rain played a huge factor in scheduling. Thursday Night through Friday Afternoon rain pelted the track, forcing a delayed start to practice. The Walton team shuffled the practice schedule, and we were able to offer 6 hours of practice with a little rain break in between on Friday afternoon/evening.
      With Rain in the Forecast for Sunday afternoon, the schedule was altered to drop a qualifier and run a moto on Saturday. More rain came early Saturday Morning, but we were able to start only a little later than re-scheduled, and more showers came just after qualifying during the re-sort� and stopped once they were posted. This ultimately allowed for great traction and zero watering breaks, and we squeezed in our entire re-scheduled Saturday schedule slightly ahead of projections.
      Into Championship Sunday, we watered before starting and didn't have to water all day� the racing was hot, and we were done on the track at 12:30pm.
      Following our podium and awards, we hosted a "Pro-Am Team Last Man Standing" for a purse of over $750 thanks to sponsorship by RC Acres, and the top-team was Ray Drew (A) and Mike Heinmiller (P) earning $380 to split.
      The Clinton Family had the debut of their new Food Truck, and their menu for the weekend had so many amazing choices. Saturday night's beef on a bun was outstanding. The thing I love is going over and being greeted by all of them; it truly is service with a smile, and they are a great part of our family.
      Our thanks to all of our volunteers, racers, and thank you Andrew and Kevin at Skycraft Hobbies. Andrew locked down 80% of the Sponsors and Kevin held down the fort while Andrew was with us for the weekend (thankfully... I didn't want to cut up the raffle names). Plus, thanks to the fans that attended, and the amazing Sponsors (Skycraft Hobbies, Rockstar Energy Drink, Amain.com Performance Sports & Hobbies, Just Signs and Designs / Just RC Wraps, RC Acres Club, Jofer, Vertigo Performance, Hurricane Art RC, Outerwears, Great Hobbies, PRO-LINE Racing, Axis RC, LargeScaleRC.com, Full Force RC, TGN Distributing, MIP, RC Scoring Pro, Huron RC & Leisure, 5th Scale Forum dot com, Heinmiller Repairs, Team Hoonage, O'Neill Brothers Racing, Dave's Discount Motors, R2C, Savox, HRP Distributing, Horizon Hobby Distributors, VP Powermaster Powermix, RC Screwz, RC Rock Armor, Igloo Racing Products and Great Planes) that supported with product and financial support.

      1/5 Scale RC Truck and Buggy racing at it’s utmost finest: check out the epic recap video by KpopRC from the 2015 Canadian Fifth Scale Nationals at Walton Raceway in Walton, Ontario.
      There’s some killer carnage, and some great high speed battles captured in slow-motion in gorgeous 1080p HD, stitched together in a story that shows the camaraderie between this international motorhead community, and how a record-setting 105 entries were able to wait out the weather and work in the track for some epic racing on a July weekend in Canada.
      The course was grand scale as ever, providing big air and drifting turns. We can’t wait to go back!
      Make plans to join us at the 3rd Canadian Fifth Scale Nationals July 15th through 17th, 2016 at Walton Raceway. This is large scale racing…
