2013 Pay it Forward Race
On Saturday, Dec 21st Northern California and out of state racers arrived in Chico, California to fill out the largest on record Northern California attended one day offroad race totaling almost 170 entries. The race would benefit the families of the Torres Shelter like it did in 2012. A Main and the Torres Shelter would like to thank all the racers that brought toys and cash donations for the Families. The race would donate over $1200 in toys and $ 500 in cash making sure the families of the Torres Shelter would have a great holiday.
It would be an early 7:00am start and it would be a cold start as racers arrived to get their first practice laps on the high bite Outback Raceway clay surface. The racing program would start at 10:00 am sharp as noted on the perfectly executed race schedule handed out by race director Ruben Benitez. This event as adopted by A Main Hobbies would be a full day of heads up heat racing, a very welcomed change by the racers. The program would consist of two rounds of heads up heat racing and single main events with bumps ups. The racing action would be hot and heavy with lots of great bumper to bumper, nose to tail racing all day long with smiles everywhere due to the racing format used for this race.
After a full day of heat racing it would come down to the mains and the battles for the trophies. The winners in each class would be taking home nicely prepared Plaques by A Main Hobbies. After all the dust settled it would be the following drivers taking the podiums as shown below. Results can be found by clicking here and videos of the each heat and main you raced click here:
