2015 Futaba Electric Challenge hosted by Leisure Hours


Futaba Challenge

For the fifth year in a row, the Futaba Electric Challenge will be held at the Leisure Hours Raceway in Joliet, Illinois on August 28-29, 2015. Registration is still open and, as always, racers can compete in two classes for one low entry free. Both competitors and spectators can look forward to three days jam-packed full of tough, wheel-to-wheel racing.

Friday, August 28 is an open practice day on both the indoor and outdoor tracks. Racing starts on Saturday, the 29th, with heats on the outdoor track throughout the day and the short course Team Enduro. On Sunday, the action switches to the Leisure Hours indoor track. Point totals from Saturday and Sunday will be combined to determine the final standings.

Winners in all classes will walk away with bragging rights as well as trophies. Top Qualifiers will be recognized as well, and registered drivers will receive a free event T-shirt as long as supplies last. However, even racers who don’t win or TQ can still walk away with a prize of the share money, thanks to the Dash for Cash, raffles and other events.
