CHICO — Staff of AMain Sports & Hobbies were still setting up a halloween-themed racetrack when guests began walking in excitedly with their customized remote-control cars and trucks.
The store that offers a selection of remote-controlled planes, helicopters, drones, cars and trucks participated in spooky fun on Sunday with its installment of a remote-controlled micro crawling and drifting event. For the Halloween event, racers could drive on tracks that were decorated with smoke, lights and other Halloween decor.
AMain Sports & Hobbies was birthed by Kendall Bennett and Kelly Bennett in their two-car garage in Chico in 2004, said the company’s website. The pair grew their company into what now includes two 50,000 square foot locations in California and North Carolina.
Sam Patton brought his remote-controlled truck to AMain Sports & Hobbies with his friends. Although Patton was introduced to the world of remote-controlled cars by a friend shortly after the pandemic prompted a nationwide shutdown, Patton quickly became familiar with the concept of building and customizing his remote-controlled car due to his extensive automotive history.
“I love it,” said Patton. “It’s basically just mini cars. There a big amount of ways and choices to choose from and every choice comes with a different purpose. You have bashers, crawlers, drifters, draggers. There’s a little bit of everything when it comes to this hobby.”
Riley Meyers’s introduction to remote-controlled cars started in 2012 when he acquired a remote-controlled toy-grade buggy.
“It was cheap and fun, but they break pretty fast,” said Myers. “But now so much about remote-controlled cars has changed. Now there’s so many more ways you can go about it. Like, now there are at least four different sizes of crawlers at this point, and different bashers. It’s kind of like a pick-your-own-adventure kind of thing. You can do whatever you want with it.”
The company also hold another track at the Silver Dollar RC Raceway Outdoor Dirt Track located on 101 Silver Dollar Way.
“We’re just trying to provide fun for the community,” said Retail Store Manager Jabari Clark. “A lot these people today are locals and regulars — some of them will even put some work into making the course look better. Remote-controlled cars are not what they used to be. Now they are a lot more faster, more fun and it’s easier to replace parts. The experience is not at all the same as what it looked like years ago. People come in and they get surprised about the quality.”
