So unless you completely live under a rock, you probably know that David Ronnefalk won the 2016 IFMAR Worlds held in Las Vegas last October. But did you know about WATERGATE? WINGGATE? Kyosho Dominating Qualifying?
On February 10th…ish…we will be releasing our final episode for the 2016 season of “Come Drive With Us – The Vegas Worlds”. In this episode, you will get an indepth look at these very exciting worlds.
Our 4th season of “Come Drive With Us” is shaping up to be a pretty good one! We kick off the season by shooting some B-Roll at the “Aneheim 1” of R/C…the Nitro Challenge. The theme for this year, due to the CRAZY #SillySeason is “Change”. DNC will give us our first look at new equipment for a few of the top drivers!
Ty Tessmann – XRAY
Cody King – HB Racing
Ryan Maifield – Mugen Seiki
After DNC we are off to Tennessee for the Psycho Nitro Blast; in all truthfullness, I don’t like shooting indoors, but really looking forward to this event. The show the organizers put on is fantastic; really looking forward to this event.
After PNB, it’s back west for The Dual; the premise of this race is so unique. One Race, one winner, two tracks. That’s right, two tracks! Day 1 is held at the Pro-Line Racing test track; Day 2, Thunder Alley. I’m not sure how the qualifying goes or how the winner is determined but this event is going to be wicked. It’s awesome to see new ideas being introduced into the top level of Racing.
Next up, we switch gears a bit to 1/10. It’s been a while since we did a 1/10 event, and Dustin Evans as well as Ty Tessmann switching chassis this fits well into the season theme of “Change”. We’ll be covering the Pro-Line Surf City Classic hosted by OCRC.
We follow up the 1/10 action at Surf City with the final event of the ’17 season…the 1/10 IFMAR Worlds held near Xiamen China!
While we don’t typically do Live Social Media Broadcasting, we do have the ability to do so. We partnered with WCICS Live; the media branch of the Western Canadian Indoor Carpet Series organization to broadcast their Edmonton Race Live to the Internet!
In addition to the actual live feed; we created the custom interfaces to the timing and scoring software to enhance the broadcast with real-time scoring.
The Southern Nationals; this is probably an event that few have heard of and yet, it’s one of the largest races in the South Eastern United States. That being said, only three paid professionals were in attendance. So does this mean there will be more pressure or less?
Pro-Line Racing & 5150 Media Productions are proud to present to you the story of the 2016 Southern Nationals. With the low attendance by top-level pro drivers this race turned into something we really weren’t expecting: Joe’s vs. Pro’s! Find out if Victor Guerrero, Noah Dickerson or Kyle Johnson will emerge the victors of this amazing event.
Narrated once again by Mike Garrison, this story is one that we have been waiting a while to tell and we hope you enjoy this installment to the “Come Drive With Us” Series.

Each year, more than 1,000 people converge on Cisco Grove Campground to for a customer appreciation event. This event, is unlike anything we have ever covered in “Come Drive With Us”. It’s not a race; it’s an adventure and it’s called AXIALFEST.
