Hey everyone. Welcome to the Eat Sleep RC January 2016 Tamiya Giveaway car drawing.

I’m Tony Phalen and we are here at the world famous Tamiya USA Headquarters in Irvine California.

As promised, I’m here with special guest and Head of Marketing Fred Medel who will be pulling the name of the lucky winner.

Hey Fred, how’s it going?

Good, how are you?

Great! It’s funny because the Tamiya Subaru Brat was the very first car I ever had so it’s kind of cool being back down here at Tamiya to do the first Eat Sleep RC giveaway.

Well thanks for having us. We’re really excited to be apart of Eat Sleep RC.


Looking forward to our continued partnership and doing more things.

I like to hear that! Alright, are you ready to pull a winner?

Yeah! I’m ready.

Alright, let’s see.

We had over 200 entries for the January edition and about to pull a name – shake it up in the cool Eat Sleep RC black custom trash can.


Oh, alright, there you go – lots of names!

Alright – let’s see what happens here.

Just one.

There it is.

Alright – the lucky person is Lucian (I’m gonna kill this name) Matuszewski. Looks like you’re the lucky winner and we’ll be contacting you soon to gather your information to get you your car.

So there you go. Thank you Fred for being a part of the Eat Sleep RC January Edition

Oh well thanks for having me Tony.

Absolutely! Don’t forget, the names have been cleared and you will need to re-submit your entry to win February’s custom giveaway car. Go to to find out what it is!

Good luck.

And thanks for playing!
