2019 Mugen Challenge – Report

The 2019 Mugen Challenge was held at the LCRC Raceway in Central Pennsylvania, attracting 389 entries from across the country. The event kicked off on Wednesday with the ‘Mechanics Clinic’ presented by Pat Risser & Kevin Mummah. This brand new 10 entry clinic taught 1/8 Drivers & Crew good maintenance practices, and how to setup their cars. Once again this year, on Thursday, Mugen Seiki’s Adam Drake hosted the Annual Drake Clinic, and worked with 20 drivers to improve their cars and their driving skills. Friday kicked off open practice, which was delayed by some early morning rain, but perfect weather followed for the remainder of the race. Throughout the weekend, 21,389 laps were put on the new LCRC layout, which featured an over/under obstacle.

The staff at LCRC Raceway would like to extend a special thanks to everyone that attended the 2019 Mugen Challenge, and for all your kind words and encouragement throughout the event. Special thanks to the sponsors who make this all possible: Mugen Seiki Racing, Flash Point RC, JConcepts Inc, Absolute Hobbyz, and Pro-Line Racing.
