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.

We are 
testing Saturday racing in round 1, and will decide on the rest of the series based off of the first race


We will run 2 4-Minute Qualifiers, 5-Minute Bump-Ups and Double 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 7 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.


Awards will be given out to the Top 3 in each class at the end of the Series. You must race at least 4 races to qualify for the overall awards!
