Psycho Nitro Blast 2012
Our friends at LiveRC are at the event and are providing great coverage as always…
“For those that aren’t familiar with the Psycho Nitro Blast (I’ll admit, I was one of them before not too long ago), let me tell you that it is every bit as “insane” as advertised. Never before has a theme been carried out so completely throughout all aspects of a host facility. Granted, not all races have themes, but this one does and it’s unmistakable from the moment you look at any piece of material related to the race.
There is good reason for this.
Dave Leikam and Oliver Aspinwall are the men behind the concept of the Psycho Nitro Blast (PNB). They also happen to own one of Georgia’s biggest haunted houses. So when Dave and Oliver decided that they wanted to combine all of their favorite aspects of other major events — such as: long qualifiers, all-night practice, and non-stop racing — the natural additive to their already potent mixture of over-the-top racing was clearly- horror. Not horror in a bad way, but horror in a good way…if that makes sense.
Strobe lights, video projectors, and an LED light show that would make most NHL stadiums jealous greet you as you walk through the main entrance to Southeastern Arena in Unadilla, Georgia — host facility to the PNB. The arena, which is used mainly for horses and equestrian-type events, is comprised of two main arena areas. The largest part of the arena hosts the track — which is probably the biggest indoor nitro track you will find anywhere. Historically, one-minute lap times have not been uncommon.”
