  • Highside RC in Brownstown has improved over past year

    BROWNSTOWN – Highside RC has improved in many ways since the doors to the indoor remote-controlled racing dirt track opened about a year ago.

    Most notably, the track has become nationally sanctioned, allowing it to host national points events such as the “last-minute” race Highside will be running on Oct. 26.

    That day, Highside will be hosting one of the final races that can be counted toward the national DODC standings.

  • Leigh, Short and Lofland win in 1st week of Slideways series
