Press Releases



Press Release Whitz Racing Products:

Whitz Racing Products is excited to bring the opportunity for what may be the largest payday in R/C Drag Racing event history with the “Whitz Racing Products Sweet Sixteen Thousand Dollar Challenge”.

The #Sweet16KChallenge gives the Final 16 Drivers at the Scotty Ernst Straigthline Showdown Outlaw Class an opportunity to enter their three-digit decimal portion of their Elapsed Time into a computer after each pass to see if it matches the Pre-Determined Three Digit Code and win $16,000! No matter if you win or lose in the Round of 16, Round of 8, Quarter Finals, Semi Finals or Final Round, each driver gets to enter in their Elapsed Time for a chance to Win $16,000!

“This Challenge from Whitz Racing Products is going to give sixteen drivers, multiple chances if they keep winning, the ability to take home $16,000 if their Elapsed Time matches the Three Digit Code. 

The Sweet Sixteen Thousand Dollar Challenge provides another amazing storyline for the entire R/C Drag Racing community to follow on our live broadcast. Potentially $16,000 for finishing 16th, that makes for great fun and entertainment, along with great racing at the 2022 Straight Line Showdown.” 

With over 250 Entries expected and only 16 Drivers able to qualify for the chance to win $16,000, the 2022 Straight Line Showdown Drag Race is shaping up to be one of the biggest events in R/C Racing for all of 2022.  

The Showdown will consist of a Double Elimination format meaning drivers will have to lose twice to be eliminated from the event which is spread over three days of racing from July 29th to July 31st in Union Grove, WI hosted at The Great Lakes Dragway.

The entire event will be broadcast on, to include almost every race, every round and driver interviews. This enhancement will give the viewers an unprecedented involvement in the event.
