Hey everyone!

Tony Phalen here with CompetitionX! Today we’re doing the final reveal and winner’s drawing at the Axial HQs in Mission Viejo, CA.

Today we’re here with Rodney Wills, Global Marketing Director, and he’ll be reaching into the Eat Sleep RC bucket to pull the name of the lucky winner.

We’ve got a tricked-out Yeti SCORE Trophy Truck loaded with a bunch of Axial option parts as well as a MaxAmps LiPo battery and Pro-Line Trencher tires.

F1 RC Lab sprayed the Ironman Ivan Stewart’s livery on Axial’s Retro body with Pro-Line’s curved 6” light bar mounted on the roof.

Hey Rodney, how’s it going?

Alright Tony. How are you doing today?

Great, getting excited to give away this truck – pretty cool truck.


Looks good, someone is going to be lucky.

Looks awesome!

And, the custom bucket of names.

What do you have in there?

This is our bucket of names – we had about 400-500 names in here (Note: we had 501 entries). Shake ’em up.

Oh wait – there’s names flying everywhere. How many names we got here? We’ve got like – ya, there’s a bunch of names here! Lots of people have asked if there are real names. Hey, why is my name on all these pieces of paper?

Well, that’s what you’re paying me for!

Oh ok.

Alright, so let’s pull one name out of there.

Just one?

Just one! Then read off the winner’s name.

What happens if three comes out with the one I pull out.

Then you’re going to have to get me two extra trucks!

I’ll pull one name!

Alright – going in – fishing at the bottom because those were put in last. Yah, put them in the blender. Are the names showing alright?

I just need to makes sure the Eat Sleep RC sticker is showing. That’s important!

Man, I want to get one that I don’t…

Grab the one that feels like the winner.

Oh I got it right here. This one feels like the winner.

And, the winner is…

Robert Fake @fastz28…and you know the last of your e-mail.

Ya, we’re not giving that out.

If this is you, contact him and you’ll get this!


It’s real simple. So, congratulations!
