Intro to Axialfest: Meet our friend and Axial Team Driver, Mr. Brian Parker as he gives us the introduction on what we will be doing this year at AXIALFEST!

Axialfest is coming to the Sierra Nevada Mountains in beautiful Northern California. Axial Racing is offering up an event that no Axial fan wants to miss; three days of R/C adventure and fun. Come experience the outdoor lifestyle with like minded enthusiasts. Let the adventure begin!

Axialfest is held in Cisco Grove, California. To some, the Cisco Grove Campground is the gateway to the Fordyce Trail; one of the toughest 4×4 trails that California has to offer, but there are trails from mild to wild for every off-road driver. Axialfest takes over the 406-site campground at Cisco Grove as many of the annual participants make this a full family vacation, coming early bringing off-road vehicles and exploring the campgrounds OHV trail access to 350 acres and the legendary Fordyce Trail that rivals the Rubicon!
Yes, this is a LIFESTYLE, R/C is an extension of that lifestyle!

Here is an overview of Axialfest & what drivers, fans, & adventurers have to be excited about, official Axialfest Activities kick off Friday June 22 at 8am.
