Brian O’Neill

One of the classiest customers I knew passed away on September 26, 2008. Brian O’Neill was a huge part of the success of Steel City Hobbies’ R/C Carpet Racetrack. Brian helped with the construction of the area’s largest carpet track, as well as helping to organize events – from club racing to the big nationals held at SCH. We will miss you Brian!

Brian is survived by his wife and two young sons who all frequented SCH. A few local tracks are looking into holding memorial races to help the O’Neill’s out financially, etc.

Events are planned or are in the works at two local tracks:

J & C Hobbies Raceway – – Event on November 15th
The Raceway – Beaver – run by John Peoples / AB Charles Hobby Shop – Event TBD
