INNER-CITY RCP Training & Racing
Training & Racing Experience:

You're wondering: How is this an educational program? How Is this a program of growth? How Is this a program of building? How could this be a sport? How Is this a STEM/STEAM program? The answers to your questions are below. 

Our "Training & Racing Experience" is the answer. The"Training & Racing Experience" is a 9-week curriculum course hosted three times a year. Youth drivers learn to use physics and mathematics by calculating travel, speed, distance, time, gravity, and weight effortlessly while competing against one another on the driving course. Youth drivers drive, repair, and train with some of the most technologically advanced radio-controlled trucks to compete against each other in a team environment. Youth drivers participate in reverse-engineering of the trucks by conducting repairs, removing and replacing electronics, and adding mechanical parts. The parts are fully replaceable, and upon breakage of a part or pieces, youth drivers and their teams are responsible for repairing their assigned trucks. 


15 - 30 youth participate at any given time, and teams are broken up into 3 - 5 youth drivers per team. Police Officers are active team members. Teams work together weekly during the 9-week program to make them smarter, wiser, more confident, and more robust. Each racing event is made up of Youth drivers competing against each other. Officers remain consistent throughout the 9-week program to establish and maintain a personal connection. So, while a youth driver is racing, he/she always has a support team in their corner. This experience is a complete learning experience for all who are involved. 

Youth drivers excel and advance based on their ability to make the necessary but slight adjustments to the mechanics of their radio-controlled trucks to suit their driving style. Youth drivers accomplish this by building comfort, confidence, and knowledge. Additionally, a youth driver will not successfully complete a race without applying discipline, technique, and physics rules. Youth drivers have to apply these rules to adjust to the configurations and conditions of the course. We cannot guarantee consistent victories for every Youth driver in our program. However, we can ensure consistent losses for every youth driver who does not apply the principles that we teach in our program.  


We paint the radio-controlled trucks to replicate the topmost active 10 - 20 scaled real-life monster trucks currently racing in the Monster Jam circuit. Youth drivers learn about the real-life Monster Trucks and the truck's history. Annually, all participants are taken on a field trip to see the actual Monster Trucks race.

Program Explained:

9-week STEM/STEAM curriculum program

Side-by-side bracket track racing for accumulated points.

We provide radio-controlled vehicles to the children

Driver's error, experience, and technique will determine the winners

All vehicles will be kept in stock condition to remain competitive

Remember the questions at the top of this page?..... And your answer is?

Our ultimate goal is to eventually have a facility where we can have youth from all over the city and surrounding suburbs, accompanied by Police Officers from those respective areas to converge for racing and fellowship. With your help, we can reach the full capabilities of the Training & Racing Experience.
