Steel City Hobbies attends the Snowbirds Nationals indoor on-road race. Sponsored by SCH, Ray Darroch wins the A-Main!

Steel City Hobbies was happy to attend the Snowbird Nationals 2004 in Orlando Florida. SCH was proud to sponsor an up and coming on-road racer named Raymond Darroch who is from our home town area of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Seems that everyone has their eye on Ray as he has picked up a few sponsors over the last two races alone such as Team Losi, JR, Novak and in part, Trinity.

Read below a few facts on Ray (click here to jump to notes on Ray) and look at several pictures of all the action in Florida.

The Snowbirds have been going on for a few years and consist of a variety of races. ‘Snowbird On-Road Classes’ and ‘Snowbird Oval Classes’.
