FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WITH BIG NEWS, FORMULA DRIFT CHAMPION VAUGHN GITTIN, JR., JOINS RCX CHICAGO
-- Industry Veteran Will Offer Exclusive Thrill Rides for Lucky Fans –


CHICAGO (July 5, 2011) – Radio Control Expo (RCX), the nation’s ultimate radio control show, is pulling out all the stops as they today announce a special collaboration with Drifting Champion Vaughn Gittin, Jr., for the upcoming Chicago show. An industry veteran with 10 years of tire-smoking, trophy-winning experience, Vaughn Gittin, Jr., is the 2010 Formula Drift World Champion. He will be on-site at RCX Chicago working with a variety of events to interact with the fans.
In addition to signing autographs, Gittin will host and judge the radio control (RC) drift competition while having some fun on the RC drift track with show attendees. His unmistakable Monster Energy Falken Tire Ford Mustang and full 53 foot transport trailer will also be on-site. For a few lucky fans, Gittin will provide the ultimate driving experience with one-on-one drift ride-alongs. This specialty thrill ride will only be available to a handful of randomly selected fans. Visit www.RCX.com for more information.
“We are thrilled to have Vaughn Gittin, Jr., joining us for RCX in Chicago. He is always a huge hit with fans and we’ve got him lined up for a full schedule of events at the show,” said Louis DeFrancesco, RCX CEO. “RCX has always hosted interactive features, but with Gittin getting in on the action, we know fans will want to be right beside him.”
Currently racing the 2011 Monster Energy Falken Tire Ford Mustang, Gittin boasts impressive street and track credibility. He is known best by his aggressive, foot-to-the-floor, big smoke driving style. In 2010, Vaughn earned his first Formula Drift Championship, becoming the second-ever Champion with a strictly-drifting background. Overall, he has earned multiple top finishes throughout his Formula Drift career. Being such a fierce competitor, Gittin is known as the only American to win a D1 Grand Prix event, not once, but twice. In 2005, Gittin stunned the world when he won the D1GP USA vs. Japan. In 2007, he brought America home the gold once more by winning the D1GP World Championship.
For an action-packed day full of excitement and an opportunity to meet Vaughn Gittin, Jr., RCX Chicago will be at the Odeum Expo in Villa Park, Ill., on Saturday, August 6, 2011. Featuring high-flying radio control helicopters and planes, squealing race cars, interactive “try me” stations and an assortment of the radio control industry’s latest and greatest in technology and products, RCX Chicago is an event you don’t want to miss!
With more exciting news on the horizon, RCX Chicago is poised to make an industry-wide announcement about a vast expansion in show sponsorships for the RCX program that will travel the country for 2011-2012 with featured stops planned in Long Beach, California and Orlando, Florida.
