Pro-Line Racing & 5150 Media Productions are proud to present to you the story of the 2017 Psycho Nitro Blast.
This season started out with so many changes; Maifield switching to Mugen; Tessmann to XRAY; so we decided to theme this season accordingly. Change is everywhere in this industry; even at the event level. In years past, DNC has been considered the largest Nitro Race in the world. That just might not be the case any longer.
This is the story of what could very well be considered the largest R/C race in the world, and unlike other large events…it is run in 3 days!
The talented Mike Garrison Narrates this episode of “Come Drive WIth Us” and we hope you enjoy it!
Special thanks to Mike Garrison, Adam Drake, Tanner Denney, Joe Bornhorst, Mark Santa Maria, Jerome Treignier, Eggroll, Rob Theissen & the Noise Therapy band, the Tessmann family, everyone at Pro-Line Racing and last but far from least, Dave Leikam.
This past weekend 5150 had a crew at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo. We were shooting a documentary, not only on the Expo itself, but on a few of the participants.
The main focus was Stand-up Comic & TV star Howie Miller whom we shot some B-Roll with earlier in the year. We also focused on several Cos-players including Trevor Goupil.
In addition to Howie, Trevor and a myriad of attendees, we were fortunate enough to have several of the guests help us with our documentary project. Jim Shooter, Kenny & Spenny, Mark Meer, Raphael Sbarge & Garrett Wang were gracious enough to donate some of their precious time to our project.
While our focus of the doc is on the attendees it’s always nice to get the celebrity guests to weigh in on how awesome the Expo here in Calgary really is. It really blew us away when Mr. Wang said that the Calgary Expo is top 3 in the world.
This was an amazing experience! I was finally in a place where people actually understand my obscure movie references. We were walking into Hall-C and it was so crowded that I was reminded of a scene from ‘The Mummy’ so I started chanting Imhotep Imhotep…and people got it and were laughing out loud! I felt right at home!

We still have some B-Roll shooting to do with both Trevor and Howie but we are planning on a Summer release of our doc. Be sure to check out the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo coming up September 22-24th! For now, checkout our picture gallery on Facebook!
5150 has a pair of product videos coming out for Kyosho and “Come Drive With Us – Psycho Nitro Blast” should be dropping in the June time-frame.
Unless you live under a rock, you probably know that David Ronnefalk won the 2016 IFMAR Worlds held in Vegas last October. But that’s only the end of the story…and to be honest, the final wasn’t all that exciting. What was exciting is seeing how we got to that point.
There is simply so much that goes into just competing at the top level at an IFMAR Worlds event, that if we just told the story of the winner…we would be out of a job. Events like Silver State, the Worlds Warmup, the Pro-Line Gas Champs, the Neo Race and simply just pracice at Revelation with “The Drake” all contribute to telling the amazing story of the 2016 Worlds.
This is the final episode of the 2016 Season is once again Narrated by Mike Garrison and he truly hope you enjoy this episode of “Come Drive WIth Us”.
