    4th Annual Primal RC Race 2021

    Primal RC is excited to host our 4th Annual Race! Along with 2 Stroke Mafia, racing will take place this year in Halethorpe, MD. We look forward to seeing the craziest and fastest builds at this event! 

    The racing will be a 1/5th scale drag racing format with two cars racing at the same time in separate lanes. This event is only for 1/5th scale cars featuring 2 stroke gas engines. Here is a video from a previous racing event. Both Baja’s and Primal Dragsters are welcome (see racing classes and rules below).
