Nitro Hero Challenge set for 4th Annual Running

The time has come for the return of the Nitro Hero Challenge (NHC). This annual event hosted by Thunder Alley R/C Speedway was put on hold in 2020 due to the relocation of the track along with the Covid-19 restrictions in place by the state of North Carolina.

2021 will mark the 4th time the event as been held, and the first time being hosted at the new facility located at 5320 US-301 in Lucama, NC. The race will be held on July 31st (Saturday) with an optional open practice held on July 30th (Friday). This year, the event is presented by Tekno RC as they have provided a new EB48 2.0 Nitro Buggy kit to be given away to one lucky racer.

Pro Nitro Buggy has been the Premier Class each year. The current list of NHC champions include Austin Woodyard (2017), Jake Stikeleather (2018) and Will McIver (2019).

In addition to Pro Nitro Buggy, the 2021 edition of the NHC will also include the following classes…

  • Open Nitro Buggy
  • Nitro Truggy
  • eBuggy
  • eTruggy
  • 4wd Short Course
  • Novice

Will we see a new winner in the Pro Nitro Buggy, or will we see the first 2-Time NHC Champion crowned?
