EAST PEORIA (25 NEWS) - A local hobby shop in East Peoria brought out a ton of R-C car lovers to race for a nice cash prize.

CRC Hobbies hosted its ‘New Year’s Cash Dash’ race Sunday where guests of all ages raced each other with radio controlled cars and trucks on a carpet track.

Nearly two dozen drivers showed up and showed their cars off on the track and the cost for entry was $20.

“We thought a good way to start off going into the new year be a cash race for everybody,” race manager Jordan Abegg said.

“Get some money in their pockets, let them enjoy the hobby on a nice, cold day like today,” he added.

The race was live streamed online for all to watch.

CRC hobbies hosts race car classes every other Sunday and every Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Abegg said its great to have hobbies like indoor racing when the winter months roll around.
