Hello everyone. My name is Chris Raceles and I am very psyched to be a blogger on Pro-Line’s new web site! I’ve been an RC enthusiast and racer for a very long time now and have been a Pro-Line sponsored driver since the early 90‚Äôs (Wow I just felt kinda old! I can remember it like yesterday when Associated released the ‚ÄúStealth‚Äù transmission for the RC10 ‚Äì OG son!). Some of you old school Southern California racers may remember me from the RCH days in Costa Mesa. Back then I ran for Associated, Reedy, Airtronics, Pro-Line and RCPS (Cliff Lett was way ahead of his time with the RCPS body for the RC10) and raced three times a week on a regular basis with guys like Mark Pavidis, Brian Kinwald, Cliff Lett, Steve Chamberlain, etc.. Jumping forward to current, I am completely psyched on nitro off-road racing! It‚Äôs like moto without actually riding (I am also an avid BMX & Motocross enthusiast).
I am very excited for the 2008 racing season and look forward to seeing y‚Äôall at the track. I am planning on doing the Southern California Saturday Series, the JBRL series, the Buggy Nats at Thunder Alley and as many other races as I can hit ‚Äì work permitting (gotta make those green backs!)
Anyway, thanks for reading my blog introduction and remember to check back every week for updates and new happenings, etc. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my 2008 sponsors ‚Äì Pro-Line, Mugen Seiki, Ninja engines and Ogio. THANKS!!!!!
