History of the race

The ROCKSTAR Short Course Series was first started by Joe Pillars, ROCKSTAR's Joey Lancaster, & Portland R/C Raceway's Owner Jim Dunlap 10 years ago. Since then, this Friday night series has continued to bring out many of the best racers from all over the North-West to compete in a fun and exciting environment.

This series will once again be held on Friday nights with the track open from 2:00pm to 6:15pm for practice and racing starting right at 6:30pm.


We will run 2 5-Minute Qualifiers, 5-Minute Bump-Ups and Single 5-Minute A-Mains to help finish at a decent hour. We will resort after the first round of qualifying to allow for better racing. The top 6 drivers after qualifying is complete will go straight into the A-Main with a 2 car bump from the lower mains. 


This 6 race series will take your 4 best finishes with 2 throw outs.
