We've seen an amazing decade of racing action since the RCMTC was formed in 2008/2009, a decade that has seen so much growth an expansion in the R/C Monster Truck Racing scene across the country and the RCMTC has been a big part of that. Brett Crawford of Crawford Performance Engineering got together with the RCMTC to form the RCMTRS Rules Package in 2009. This template of racing rules and practices is present in many forms of R/C Monster Truck Racing across the country today.

DERRICK ALGIERI AND STORM DAMAGE WIN 2018 RCMTC SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP
Derrick Algieri was nothing but dominant in which was an extremely competitive and hard fought Points Series in 2018. The Championship for Derrick is his second in a row and fourth overall RCMTC Championship, he also won the Points Series in 2012 along with the RCMTC World Finals Racing Championship also in 2012. The 2018 season started out with Kyle DeFalco winning back to back events, Round 1 wih Pure Adrenalin and Round 2 with Executioner, looking early like it was going to be a dominating year for Kyle as he has done in years past. When the tour headed outdoors for Round 3, Storm Damage started to show real strength. In what Derrick calls one of his least successful tracks, Storm Damage knocked out Kevin Adair's Spiderman in the PENDA Straight Drag racing finals. Kyle was able to fight back in Round 4 with Executioner, sweping all 3 podium spots and winning the event with Executioner, taking the lead for the points and setting up what would be the battle for the championship in 2018, Executioner first Storm Damage. Round 5 saw a return back to indoor carpet racing due to rain outside and what an awesome event as we saw Pete Paquette in Doomsday get a long time coming well deserved breakout win over Tom Greathouse in the racing finals. A fourth place finish for Storm Damage and a quarter final round loss for Executioner tightened the gap back up. Rounds 6 and 7 is where Storm Damage was able to take over. Derrick won both events, and sercured the 2018 Championship at the season finale. We here at the RCMTC along with all the drivers and fans following us along the way would like to congratulate Derrick on a job well done, we are beyond proud and happy to have him as our champion again this year!!
