Hundreds come to Michiana for RC racing

Feel the need for speed? Dozens of racers from across the nation did Saturday right here in Michiana.

The Granger Off-road Remote Control Raceway hosted round two of the Michigan State Championship series for remote control racing, or RC for short.

The track has been making constant improvements to the course, facility and program, attracting some of the biggest races in the region.

Racers from Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and even as far as Wisconsin, Iowa and Kentucky descended on Granger for Saturday’s event.

There are at least 150 to 200 registered participants, but those taking part say it's more than just a race.

"It’s more of a social event in the way I look at it,” says Nick Vasquez a Granger RC Racer. “It's based around the racing, its focused on the racing and everyone wants to do good, but like I said we're all just hanging out just having a good time. There's families, moms and dads, 2nd and 3rd generations doing it."

The third round of the Michigan State Champion Series will be on "The Track" in Carleton, Michigan.
