Monster Truck Madness – Monster Truck Goodness at Horizon RC Fest this weekend!
Hey gang, coming to you a bit earlier this week so you have some time to make plans for the awesomeness that’s happening this weekend near Champaign, IL! Horizon Hobby is holding their annual Horizon RC Fest event June 9th and 10th and they are doing it up bigger than ever.
Whether you are wanting to watch the stunt flyers (you should, they’re amazing), go rock crawling, take part in r/c sumo wrestling, turn some laps in the latest racing buggies, or just hang out and see what’s what in the world of r/c, it’s a can’t miss event!
I wanted to talk about the monster truck festivities in particular here, as this year they are getting top billing!
There’s going to be a big solid axle monster truck race, and it will be attended by 1:1 pro monster truck drivers Ryan Anderson (Sonuva Digger), Weston Anderson (Bog Hog), Bari Musawwir (Zombie), and Dan “Cheech” Agosh (Raminator)! Yes, you’ll be able to race the pros with your r/c! The full size King Sling and Raminator monster trucks will be on display, with Raminator performing a car crush on Saturday.
In addition to the solid axle race, there will be various fun special events. A blindfold partner race, mud bog tug of war in front of the real King Sling, and a freestyle event. The crew is very welcoming, so if you’ve never competed with your solid axle monster truck before, the water’s warm so come on in!
Any hobby fan should attend Horizon RC Fest, but this year if you’re a monster truck guy, you just HAVE to! It’s awesome seeing this segment of the hobby (along with the Horizon’s flagship product serving this genre, the Losi LMT) given the headline treatment!
The event takes place at:
999 Iron Horse Pl, Monticello, IL
