The Cause: The Marines Toys for Tots Foundation
The Loot: $1,900 in donations were raised to go straight to the foundation along with 17+ large boxes filled with toys for the less fortunate.
The location: TeamChase Compound is in the beautiful Southern California city of Perris (just off the 15 headed to vegas from LA). The compound sits on top of mountain with amazing views and limited neighbors in sight (thats good when you have your own 1/5 scale track..haha).
The Wrap Up:
Several valuable items were donated to the big raffle which raised funds for the Toys for Tots Foundation. The total raised for these items was just over $1,700.00. Here are the items donated and images of the winners.
Grand Prize- HPI Baja 5b decked out with a ton of aftermarket goodies donated by TGN Distributing. Valued over $2,000!
Two Bodies were custom painted by Got Paint, one on a HPI Baja 5T and another on a body donated by Woodster.
TNT donated one of their heavy duty baja stands to the cause. Do you recognize this guy? He was the lucky winner of the HPI Baja donated by TGN last year! Lucky guy!
A new SC Wide Body was donated by RCP which was won by this lucky lady.
TeamFastEddy also held his own side raffle for one of his popular work stands for the HPI Baja. Ironically Gary of Team Losi won the stand but was promised he would get the new Losi top plate soon. Eddies raffle raised an additional $210 for the Toys for Tots Foundation. Thank you Ed!
Both HPI Racing and Losi Racing were present at this event and playing nicely pitted right next to each other. Way to go guys! Thanks for your support!
The turnout was excellent, I believe it was increased by a good amount from last year. Weather was a little iffy across LA so I do believe some may have skipped out on making the trip based off their local weather. Either way it was great to see so many of the regulars as well as some of the new guy and gals out at the Chase Compound.
TONS of item were donated by the event sponsors listed below. We raffled off most of them using the tickets they received when donating a toy. The others we done by people lining up and getting handed items as they passed by the Marine Master Sargent
Some new items were being tested out at this event. Including several TeamChase Losi 5IVE-T items like this skid plate that was beat down all weekend with no issues. Pick up this part and others HERE.
And this DarkSoul 5IVE-T Billet Clutch Carrier took the abuse of stunt driver Mark Hull.
Purchase these very soon at TGN right HERE.
Check out the new Craftwerks-RC light pods being tested on the Chase Compound.
Purchase these NOW at TGN HERE.
The big shock of the weekend I think came from Barndog Racing. Check out his new panels he is working on for the TeamChase cage for the HPI Baja. WOW! Coming soon to TGN!
Special Thanks goes out to “DJ Maytag”, our good friend Mike Phelps was there all day and night pumping out the tunes as he was last year. If your in Southern California and your in need of a new bed or appliances, please support his store, Action Maytag in Temecula.
The TeamChase Toys for Tots Drive would not be the same without In-N-Out which is completely sponsored by TeamChase each year. YUM YUM!
A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to the TeamChase Family, which makes this event possible and allows all us boys and girls to play at their compound for the weekend. You are truly special people to this industry and we appreciate all that you do.
Special Thanks to these sponsors:
The END. Thank you all for coming and thanks to all the sponsors. Another successful large scale event. See you all next year. Happy Holidays from LSN!
