Adam Silvey (middle) and his friends have been using the RC track he made on his property. When he gets a scoring system installed, Silvey hopes to open to event up to more racers.

With a past in stock car racing, the sport has always been a part of Adam Silvey’s life.

Recently, he and some friends starting molding and sculpting a race track on a much smaller scale – one to race remote controlled (RC) cars.

Lucas Smith has been racing RC cars for several years and has traveled to more than a dozen tracks all over Iowa. The new one in Iowa Falls, at Adam Silvey's house, is one of the funner ones he has used.
