Hey CompetitionX fans!
I’m Tony Phalen and we’re here today at Axial Racing to pull the winning name of the July 2016 Eat Sleep RC giveaway car.

We’re here with Scott Kerkes, Dealer Rep, and he’s here to help us out with the name pull.

How’s it going Scott?

Very good. Thanks for having me here today. Someone’s going to be very lucky to get this Bomber RTR. Can’t wait to see who it is.

Yeah, might just be me if we can’t find the name bucket.


This month’s giveaway ride is an Axial RR10 Bomber in full RTR trim. All you’ll have to do is pull it from the box, charge up the included MaxAmps LiPo battery pack and get ready to tear up the trails.


Ok, so before we pull the name of the winner, I want to talk a little about Axialfest. It happened a couple of weeks ago, one of the best events I’ve ever been to. What do we have in store for next year? A lot of the same?

I think you’ll see a lot of the same. Probably be a little bit more people there. Might be capped off this year. You want to stay tuned for the dates on Axial’s website or go over to CompetitionX and check it out. I’m sure they’ll have a lot of updates for you. But, yeah, stay tuned for more information on the 2017 Axialfest.

We’re going to be there, just letting you know. If you’re going to cap it, we want to be a part of that.

I think we can do that.

Ok great. Let’s get to the name pull. So we have our lucky bucket of names here. We had over 690 entries for this car here.

Wow, impressive.

I’m going to mix it up pretty good. I saw some of the names of guys that have already won; you’ve got your names in here. Push yours to the bottom.

Still in there for another chance.

Alright, go ahead and grab a name out of there.

Let’s see. The big lucky winner is… Doug Waraxa. Doug Waraxa, you’re getting a new RR10 Bomber.

Congratulations Doug!

CompetitionX would like to thank both Axial Racing and MaxAmps for their contributions to this month’s giveaway. Their links are in the description below so please take a moment and visit their websites.

Thank you everyone for signing up this month and as we do every month, we’ve cleared all the names and you will need to re-submit your entry to win August’s custom giveaway car. Head over to to find out what it is. And thank you Scott for taking a moment out of your day to help us with the drawing for the bomber.

No problem, it was my pleasure. Thank you guys and thanks to CompetitionX.
