The talent pool grows every year with headliner, Ryan Maifield, confirmed for the Fall edition of the INS. Known for his wicked, all-out driving style, Maifield is poised to make his return to RCE after a two-year hiatus. Adding to the elite field of drivers and coming off a 2wd Modified Turf Nationals win at RC Madness, Alex Kosciuszek, has also confirmed to attend the 2017 Fall INS. Alex has matured a great deal since bursting onto the scene and was able to take some incredible victories in 2017 including a 4wd modified win over Maifield at round 1 of the INS in St. Louis.

Arguably the fastest driver in Florida, Daimon Borkowicz always brings his ‘A’ game and is constantly improving. With mentors like JR Mitch, Paul Wynn, and Jason Ruona, the Florida fast kid is a threat where ever he goes. Deepening the talent pool, TLR standout JP Richards, will also be on hand at this year’s Fall Indoor Nationals. JP is deadly in all classes as he sits towards the top in the overall points standings in 2wd, 4wd, and modified truck classes.

Due to popular demand, multiple time Worlds’ Finalist and President of JConcepts, Jason Ruona, is confirmed to be racing at RCE! It’s undeniable that Jason is still extremely fast despite rarely driving, which proves when you got it, you got it! Mix in the fast locals like TLR’s talented Toddie Anderson and Aaron Kothman, the A-Main is almost complete. It’s guaranteed to be a showdown through qualifying and during the triple A-Mains. Sign up and let’s go racing! We’ll see you there!
