2018 JConcepts Indoor National Series 8 Race Dates Announced!

A new year, new champions; Are you ready to take the JConcepts Indoor National title?

Back in 2011, JConcepts had the vision to create the best RC racing series on the planet and with the cooperation of many fine tracks and sponsors, we united to develop the first indoor nationwide race series that travels to 5 unique tracks across the United States dedicated for racers and enthusiasts.

From its inaugural year, the INS became an instant classic exceeding all expectations. Now in its 8th year and with over 7,500 entries and counting, the JConcepts Indoor National Series has become THE race for racers to showcase their driving skills on a national level while testing themselves against some of the industry’s best drivers. The JConcepts INS is well known for its fun and friendly racing atmosphere combined with world-class competition. At the core, the INS remains unchanged but is devoted to raising the standard for 2018 in terms of series participation, factory driver representation, and professionalism. With the bar set high, 2018 is going to be another unforgettable year with each of the 5 races providing a unique, extraordinary race experience that’s going to last a lifetime.

Making sure the INS gets the best in news media coverage, we are expanding the media exposure with more professional event photos, team driver interviews, and our industry-leading live coverage. Our goal is to not only share the experience with the racing community, but to our friends, family, and potential future racers.

The distinct 5 race series takes on the seasonal format of Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall Nationals races that will be held at fixed locations while the final race will serve as the ‘End of year bash’ and series championship presentation. All events will be awarded separately so those concerned about commitment will be recognized for performance regardless of overall series participation. City destinations, track facilities, and competition level have all been weighed and evaluated ahead of time so rest assured the experience and atmosphere are worthy…. now it’s up to you.

2018 updates –

For 2018, the Stadium and SCT classes have been simplified. To help bring new life to the events, the truck classes will be formatted around the 13.5 motor. Now, with Stadium and SCT classes available in a new power package, racers have fresh classes to race alongside the already popular 13.5 4wd class.

In addition, the success of the Independent classes on the Super Cup Championship Series has driven us to add this offering on the National Series. The Independent class, limited to 40 entries per event, is quite simply a 17.5 buggy class for drivers without sponsorships. This class targets new and inexperienced racers or veteran drivers who like to compete without the need for manufacturer affiliation. To keep things even more equal, a control tire will be utilized in this class. The JConcepts tires will be available from the race organizer where the driver can purchase during registration.

The rules for Independent sponsorships and affiliation –

  • Intended for less skilled, beginning or veteran drivers
  • No sponsors – chassis, accessory, motor/battery and hobby shop sponsorships included
  • Youth (15 years and younger) drivers may receive support from parents, this includes a parent as a hobby shop owner.
  • Manufacturer, hobby industry or hobby shop employees are not eligible to compete
  • Follows control tire rule
